3rd annual? multirotor event, Swansea MA
I closed the last thread...2nd annual multirotor....... to put new info here about this years new meet.
All are welcome! Planes ( hand launch only) and any form of multirotor. (No helicopters allowed)
Please be a proficient pilot, with safety in mind......we will have non flying spectators there. And we don't want any bad "evil drone" publicity.
We are hosting FPV and LOS racing at the event. It'll be a very casual type of racing, no rigid rules on what can be flown, if its a multi, and you're willing to risk it, it flies!
This year we'll be having a swap meet too. bring what you'd like to sell that is RC related, bring your own table
This is the third event we've had. There will be lots of very good pilots/builders there. With everything from <$100 tricopters to over $1000 octocopters, so the multirotor market will be well represented.
Location is 289 Locust street Swansea, MA This is the Ice Cream Barn in Swansea, MA. Great ice cream! All sourced locally, and made in the barn, great people too.
I will try to have my generator running so we can have a charging station.....But I still have to fix it!
Please contact me if you are coming, or might come. We are having name tags made for everyone.
Date is May 4th, on a Saturday 10am ???. There is no entrance fee, but we may take up a collection to give the fields owner a little something.
I'll be updating this post as info becomes available..... here is a pic of the field, and one of my multi racers
PM me or email email@example.com or call 508-558-0261 between 10am and 10pm eastern USA.

RTH: Swansea MA
Hey Andy...... is RTH return to home? Sorry for my ignorance.
New FPV racing video.....
Should we also do drag races? 2 copters at a time..... here is a practice video.
The pylons are a little smaller than hat we'll use at the meet. The small pylons in the vid are 4' the large are around 5'6". I'll make 8 footers for the real course.
Its surprising how early you have to start your turns. This course is way too small, its probably less than 60-70 feet, I'm thinking an overall course of 528 feet would be cool. That would make converting time to MPH really easy. I'll have a 13"tv we can setup for spectators, I'll see if I can find any Y cables to hook it up. I can hang it on the side of my truck.
