I look forward to see good things from Outrage in the future. Bert is probably the foremost communicator in the heli world right now.

SAB and HD are obviously distribution partners. Clearly SAB can't bring a Heli into the market without tapping into someone with retail and customer experience. HD is one of the big players that I'm sure does a lot of business. If it wasn't HD, there are only a handful of other dealers of that size, really. Anyway, HD has always been great, so I think SAB made a good choice.

HD and Outrage are still closely liinked together, so it would also make sense to let SAB and Outrage combine some of the efforts. The goblin isn't competing with any of the Outrage models either. Maybe things will change in the future though if we ever see a Fusion 90.

Heliplane.net had some good info:

Quote:
I am very proud to now be part of the new Outrage R/C flight team. I would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things for those of you who are interested. As many of you know, my wife Suzi and I resigned from our positions at our previous employer back in August due to circumstances beyond our control. This was not a decision we made lightly, considering the fact that we would loose the majority of our household income. Given the circumstances, I decided to focus my attention on my previous experience in the IT industry. Prior to losing our jobs, Suzi and I had committed ourselves to attending the Alpine Heli Smackdown in Switzerland. However, with our financial situation at the time, we were unsure if we were going to be able to make the trip. After a lot of consideration, we decided that it was important to go and fulfill our commitments, and I am actually very glad we decided to go. While in Switzerland, I spent a couple of days prior to the event hanging out with my friend Tareq Alsaadi. This gave me the opportunity to not only hang and fly with him, but also to get to know Steve (one of the owners of Outrage).
Honestly, I had never considered or even thought about flying for Outrage in the past. However, after spending a few days with Tareq and Steve, learning the machines and talking about the product, I saw a great opportunity to help the brand. It was not long after my return from Europe when I received a formal offer from Outrage and after a lot of consideration, I accepted. The company has gone through some issues, but has also made some changes lately that will help it in the long run. I feel that my knowledge and experience could be of great value and the relationship will be mutually beneficial.
In addition, also during the trip, I established a very good relationship with Stefano from SAB, and soon thereafter I was asked to be part of the test team for the Goblin project, which of course I accepted! I am proud to be part of the SAB team flying their Goblin helicopter as well as the line of SAB blades.
I am very excited and look forward to the opportunity to challenge myself bringing many positive changes to Outrage and taking it to the next level. I want to personally thank everyone for all the support I was given during this period, I was literally flooded with offers and opportunities, I am very grateful and thankful to have so many good friends.

Best wishes to Bert and Outrage. I, for one, would like to see the V90 in Bert's hands.

The rumors concerning SAB and Outrage goes beyond distributorships. It was discovered that SAB will not be producing the helicopter parts in Italy, which is understandable considering the large start up costs. The rumor took a strange turn when it was suggested the factory that produces Outrage helicopters will be creating parts for SAB.

Thanks for all the good wishes guys, it is appreciated.

The rumors are just rumors, like any other manufacturer, parts are made at various factories, even Align has vendors that make some parts that they don't make in house. There is of course a good relationship between SAB and HeliDirect, they chose HD to be their strategic partner for retail/distribution. Goblin canopies are also painted by Canomod and Fusuno, which are part of the Outrage family, the relationship is clear.

The speculation simply needs to stop, if you like the machine, buy it, if you don't, don't buy it, quite simple I do love both of my Goblins

Gratz Bert! I'm new to the heli world but very familiar with your videos. Glad everything worked out for you and your family.

Who else, while reading Bert's public announcement, could hear his voice? Sort of like reading Finless Bob's posts and hearing his voice. I hope I'm not the only one.

Congratulations, Bert!
