Friday Photo Flood! Toledo 2016

From 3D to scale, balsa kits and equipment, there's a great giant scale presence this year at Toledo Weak Signals.

There's a Healthy Giant Scale Showing This Year

Despite the doom and gloom reports on the hobby as a whole, giant scale is in attendance this year... more so than in recent years. Many of the major brands and retailers are in attendance, and reports have indicated that quite a few are running low on stock after the first day.

There's also a few new releases that made their way to Toledo, from the AJ Aircraft airframes we reported on earlier, to the new Hangar 9 300X, the Horizon Hobby Evo 125GX twin, and a gorgeous Sig Rascal with a 14' wingspan, just to name a few. We'll have reports on some of the new and yet-to-be-released aircraft and accessories over the weekend, but until then, please enjoy these photos from Friday at 2016 Toledo Weak Signals Expo.

Have you checked to make sure that all of the airframes pictured have FAA numbers readily viewable?

Unless they are flying in the NAS, they don't need em. No one's checking.

The planes weren't for sale, just the gear. I will ask the guys tomorrow what gets those are. The show closed at 5 and they kicked everyone out already.

Not the way I understand it... if ANY of these fly or have flown, they should have FAA numbers....

Hope to see how all the beautiful scale airframes have incorporated the FAA registration number into the scheme...

A friend and I made the trek.... no....make that the pilgrimage today.

It was great to see all the goods.

It was great to see a lot of friends too! (Colton, Mr. Bradley, Al and Kevin Young, Keith and more)

Not so many junk toy booths this year which was good.

The FAA was there which was bad to see. I kindly gave them a piece of my mind which they probably didn't want to hear but... had to do it.

Good show overall is my vote.
