Another MEFF is upon us! Join Jase and the crew at the beautiful Walter RC Park for three days and nights of flying.

July 7th Through the 9th

Coming up on July 7th, the Midwest Electric Flight Festival in Saranac, Michigan, will feature plenty of sponsored raffles, open flying, 3D competitions, and much more. The location is one of the more picturesque rc flying fields: Walter RC Park.

From Jase Dussia:

The 2017 Midwest Electric Flight Festival will be the 3rd annual and it is going to be the best one yet. The dates are July 7-9 and it will once again be located at Walter RC Park in Saranac, Michigan. We have some of the best companies in RC stepping up to help support the event and donate for the raffle. The event is open to any type of electric aircraft and there is also RC car tracks and a FPV quad course. There will be open flying along with some 3D competitions that include a one trick contest, low knife edge competition, and a 3-Minute Smackdown. We will have two light towers for night flying this year which will keep the flying going non stop. Also food will available including breakfast foods, coffee, and also lunch and dinner. Huge thanks to our sponsors for their support. Can't wait to see you guys there!

Here's Jase doing his thing at MEFF 2016:

Here is a hotel about 20 minutes from the field. There are also a couple others in the area, but this seems to be the closest.

Saturday for sure. It depends on the attendance and interest if we will do them on Friday. There's not any set times, just whenever we feel like it
