Me and my wife will drag the camper up there for a few days stay. I have a 2m electric glider that I would like to bring along if something that small is allowed. I'm not sure. Anyone know? If not, I'll just be spectating...

Any and everything is allowed. There is an electric planes only area. There will be tons of planes much smaller than yours!

Ahh okay awesome! I thought it was like 80" & larger... or giant scale planes? Is there a general flying area where say a .40 nitro size plane might be able to squeeze in a flight or two without me being shunned as well? I'm going regardless but it would be even more awesome not to feel left out. I just don't have any big planes.

I should have mentioned that I really wanted to bring my little nitro planes also, but was settling for my electric glider.

I guess where I'm confused is that none of the flight line descriptions seem to mention your average everyday nitro style plane, like .40 and .60 size planes. The area that seems like it might allow them appears to be an electric only.

You can fly the .40 size on the main flight line. Don't worry about the other planes, you just have to wait your turn. But be skilled if you are on the main flight line. There are HIGH dollar planes there. I would never fly there. The electric flight line seems more casual. But I am just going to spectate. The planes on the main flight line are so beautiful and expensive, I would be embarrassed to fly there with anything less than a nice Hanger 9 model and good skills. Last time I was there, I watched a $20K turbine F-16 fly. That's what you're up against at the main flight line.

I just got into this hobby 4 or 5 months ago and I am HOOKED! I had watched a ton of videos from Joe Nall and couldn't belive it when I learned last month that this type of event was only 20 minutes from my house! I will definitely be there! (Spectating only!)
