Default eFest is This Weekend!

Hey guys, we are less than two days out from the 2013 Hobbico e-Fest!! Are you ready?
I am! I have my cameras charged, and I am ready to have some fun!

If you are from the Midwest or anywhere where winter has been blowing for several weeks now, you are probably ready for a break; a little flying time, hanging out with buddies and forgetting about all the white stuff in the driveway. If this is you, get your foamies built, batteries charged and get to e-FEST!!

Two solid days of good times and fun flying.


2013 e-Fest Schedule:

Saturday


Sunday

sorry to say I won't be attending this year. Very cool event and the way they run it you get alot of flying in. (if you want) Had alot of fun there in the past, I just wish they could make it a 3 day event instead of 2 (1-1/2 in reality).

Weather forecast for the weekend. 18 degrees, 30mph winds, gusting to 45. 4" of snow...
WAIT.. Wrong forecast, that's Alaska..

EFEST is supposed to be mid 40's and sunny here on Saturday, with 70 degrees inside and no wind! Good weather for EFEST weekend!!!

Everybody have a safe trip, and we'll see you this weekend.

Default E-Fest Day 1 Pictures

Hi everyone,
I'm in chilly Champaign, Illinois with my boyfriend Hubb for my first look at indoor RC scale flying. Here are a few random shots from E-fest day 1.
Cheers!
