PRE-Orders Available

We are looking forward to coming back again this year. Please note that just like 2 years ago, the Uni dome show is on the coat tales of the big Mid West E-Fest show in IL.

I will not be able to restock in between shows. If anybody wants anything please pre-order. Go ahead and pay for the shipping. I will refund you the shipping after the show or ship it to you if you don't pick it up.

We will have a freestyle 3D contest during the airshow. I have been told by many people that this is a crowd pleaser and I like the idea of involving the 3D fliers in the event. I need 6 to 8 fliers with prepared 2 minute routines set to music.

Ping me if you are attending and would like to compete.

Thanks,

I am really looking forward to it again this year. It has been very fun the last couple years and this should not disappoint. I will try not to make a mess with my cargo plane this year.

The Air Show is an "ad hoc" event. We use whatever the pilots bring. It usually starts with a "History of Flight" followed by solo flights of interesting or unique "flying things". In the past we've featured a missle, flying pigs, a fly swatter and bug, a flying truck and superman. If you've got something that would be a crowd pleaser, bring it. That's followed by a heli demo and then the two combat events (streamer combat and "last man flying").

Did everybody see the writeup on the event in Tim Jesky's District VII report in the February 2013 issue of Model Aviation (page 146)?

I like how the photo emphasizes how large the UNI Dome is.

Freestyle competitors-
Be aware that because the freestyle competition is occurring during the air show, the size and weight restrictions are eliminated. The only requirement is that the aircraft be electric and controllable in the allowed airspace. (We are not in some dinky gymnasium.) Practice will be an issue though. I may reserve a special time for the competitors to get familiar with the space or something similar.
