Multirotors at HHAEFI V7

OK all you Multi Rotor Enthusiasts!

In 2011 we had a pretty large showing of Multirotor Pilots. Who all is planning on showing up and topping last year? Last year we had some demos, a workshop kind of thing from the Hoverfly folks (Who also showed, demo'd, sponsored, and held a contest at SEFF 2012), and just generally a good time as far as multirotors go. Pilots helping pilots, sharing tips and tricks, checking out setups, etc.

Thanks!
HansAuf

HansAuf…..I can't wait!!! I have been flying Multi Rotors more than plane for the last 6 months or so and I am having a blast!!!

Al from HoverFlyTech is going to be a sponsor and conduct some workshops.

HoverThings is also in as a sponsor and will have some frames for the raffle.

I am sure there will be more Multi Rotor sponsors/ raffle contributors

I am so looking forward to HHAEFI!!!

What are these "plane" things you speak of. I think there are some in my RC trailer, but I need a refresher. Hoverthings frames in the raffle? Man, I could use a second VC450 and 3rd HTFPV.

With two very large online RC vendors getting very heavy into multirotors I think you will see that for sure.

As much as I would like to go again, as I had a blast Last time I went, and met some great people, and I love helping other getting into this part of the hobby. I will not be able to attend this year. Unfortunatly, I have alot of medical tests in October, and we are short manned at work so No leave for me. Hopefully I will be back up and ready to go for the next show.
HANS and Alan, I have a favor to ask of you both. Put on a great multicopter show. and make the Heli and plane guys wish they were flying multis. LOL.... and help as many as you can with this part of the hobby.

You guys rock.
