Ion-input not implementing form directives?

After a lot of debugging this problem ion-input does not behave the same as input when using form directives in @component, why wont this work? see console log on this…

Hey there. Please open an issue for this on github :slight_smile:

Hi Mike I see you worked on this component yourself, am I right in thinking this is a genuine issue? Being relatively new to this I don’t always feel confident in knowing if I’m doing something wrong or if it’s something more :slight_smile:
If it is, would this be best on the general ionic repo or is there a component repo? Thanks
