The 2015 RC event season is kicking off early with E-Fest in January this year! I have been attending this event for the past 3 years and it’s always a good time and a nice break from the winter for anyone in the northern states. Frank Noll and the team from Hobbico pack a lot into this event but there is plenty of time for flying. Spectators can enjoy the day with plenty of vendors, seminars, food, a kids “Make it Take it” airplane table and plenty of seating to enjoy the planes in the air. Saturday evening brings the special events with 3D demonstrations from some of the best team pilots, a scale competition, the Gauntlet race and night flying.
I’ll be there again this year and hope to have plenty of pictures and video to share. Check it out and come join in the fun this year in Champaign IL.
