The weekend was awesome and the flying was even better!
A full event review will follow, along with tons of videos once we have ploughed through all the many hours of footage and got it all rendered!
Thanks to everyone involved for making this the biggest and best ever 3D Championship!
We’re thrilled that a big name manufacturer has jumped on board to support our event in this way and we would like to extend our thanks to Avant RC and Midland Helicopters for helping to make this happen.
It really does feel like this is the new UK 3D RC Helicopter Event, which is refreshing after loosing the 3D Masters to Spain 😀
Date: Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th September 2009
Avant continues their vicious advertising campaign, which I have to say is working quite well for me 😉
A show not overly focused on helis (you might find one or two there) however there are definitely lots of vendors attending so a great place to fossick around for parts, batteries etc.
We have now confirmed with the Hop Farm that the Southern Model Airshow 2009 will be
on 19th & 20th September 2009.
The Southern Model Air Show takes flight at The Hop Farm Family Park, Kent. More than 100 pilots will be showcasing their model aircraft throughout the weekend, which has been described as ‘the best flying display of the year’.
There will be a whole host of different aero-modelling displays including jets, gliders, heli’s, scale, park and electric. There will also be a full size stunt plane show from Turbulent Display, the world famous Dennis Kenyon’s breath taking Heli display and the now famous pyrotechnic mock-battle.
The show will also feature a range of different model demonstrations from boats to cars, tanks and trains. If you want to purchase planes to parts then the wide variety of trade stands will satisfy your needs. Plus there’s a large bring and buy area patrolled by the Daleks!
