Photos From the Floor - Toledo Weak Signals 2017

Pictures from the 63rd annual Toledo Weak Signals Expo and RC Model Show

Splash

Toledo is Alive and Well!

Any rumors that Toledo was on life support were put to rest on Friday and Saturday. Sure, booth numbers were down, but every vendor we spoke with said the same thing: sales were way up! It seems as if giant scale, and general fixed-wing have made a noticeable comeback at Weak Signals. Drones and multirotors were plentiful, but in no way ruled the show as some have said in the past.

Jim, Jason, Ashley and I spent Friday and Saturday interviewing all of your favorite giant scale vendors and manufacturers, and we've been working hard to get all of the coverage uploaded quickly. After filling the SD card with video and getting it edited and uploaded, I switched over to photography and hit some of booths.

Here's just a small sampling of the giant-scale presence at Toledo. Scroll down for all the photos from the 63rd annual Weak Signals Expo.

This is all just my personal opinion...............


AJ Aircraft booth and all personnel were great and had a fun time talking to Scott and Andrew.


Extreme Flight booth was outstanding as well, many new products that were never heard or seen of before. All the personnel were great there too.


Precision Aerobatics was descent with some new stuff there as well. Great people there to.


Aguy marketing 50% go-carts were pretty cool.


DA Engines was normal, didn't look at much because i'm not in the need for one.


Some very nice static planes as well.


Other than what I listed the rest was disappointing. 2 complete isles were taken out to setup drone racing, this is like watching paint dry. I would bet they couldn't sell the space so this was a last ditch effort to make it look like the room was full??


Many booths were way downsized from years past, many not there at all.
