A Look at FG Toledo Coverage

The 63rd annual Toledo Weak Signals R/C Expo is coming very soon! Here's a look at some of the previous year's coverage from the FlyingGiants crew.

Giant Scale is Still The Backbone of the Show!

Toledo is upon us; like, seriously breathing down our necks with 9 days to go. And while attendance has fluctuated and vendors have come and gone over the years, Weak Signals still remains one of the most important RC shows on the annual "circuit". Some will argue that forums and social media are the place for new announcements in the hobby, but every year, Toledo sees multiple new releases and hidden gems that are revealed on the show's floor, only to hit the internet afterwards.

The Toledo Weak Signals show is a place to meet up with friends, find your favorite retailer and shake hands, and of course, view just about everything that is radio controlled. From jets to gliders, boats, cars, and drones, Toledo encompasses it all and then some. Trends come and go; what's hip and new last year can easily become old news the next. Giant scale aircraft and accessories vendors' attendance rises and falls with what's hot at the moment, but always remains a constant and core presence at Toledo.

If you're lucky enough to make it to the 63rd running of Weak Signals, I garantee you'll see an assortment of monster airframes from various vendors, as well as all the other RC goodies such as cars, boats, drones, FPV, and foam aircraft. But if you can't make it, rest assured that the FlyingGiants team will have boots on the ground and bring you all the coverage from Toledo!

I haven't seen any real coverage, videos or photo floods of this years show yet. There is a bit on RCG, but nothing like in years passed. Am I missing it somewhere?

Many companies have been doing quite a few Facebook live postings. Lots of good entertainment value there. Get on Facebook. Tons of product posts and video.
