2nd Annual Southeastern FPV Fly-in June 9-10 2012


2nd Annual Southeastern FPV Fly-in June 9-10 2012

Greg,John and myself kicked the dates around for a while and finally settled on June 9-10. This is firm so make your plans now to attend. If you cant make it on these dates we are sorry.

We had 15 pilots last year and had a great time.

We are of planning a FPV fly-in at a sight in Griffin, Ga just south of Atlanta . This will be a 2 day event with the dates being Sat June 9 and Sun June 10. The field(Pecan Patch Air Strip) is on private property( none AMA field )in a relatively rural area . Its a very nice field with a huge takeoff and landing area. Camping on sight will be permitted.

2 days will give more opportunity for people to make it out and in case weather is an issue on one of the days.

Controlled flight hours will be 8am- 8pm Saturday and 8am-5pm Sunday. Flying during non-controlled hours is permitted but no one will be running the flight board so its up to attendees to self police during these times.

Landing fee to fund a port-a-potty and other expenses will be $15 (covers both days)
Camping fee will be $10 per night .
The camping area will open at 4 pm Friday for those with long rides that want to arrive
Friday evening. Camp roll up by 5pm Sunday please.

The goal here is to simply meet, share info and fly some FPV at a great sight. All are welcome here ...near and far
**You do not have to be a FPV pilot to attend...if you are interested in learning you are welcome to attend**

Oh...if you are lucky enough to own a full scale you could fly in as this is a full scale airstrip....pm pecanpatch for details if you want to do this.

Just like last year. My P-38 lightning is still up and flying well. Just give me another streamer to cut

That said I'm working on a lazer tag system. I *might* have some prototypes up and working by the time of the fly-in. I have schematics drawn up right beside me.
