Atlanta RC Club Heli Fun Fly 2012 - Sat Oct, 13th

The gates will open around 8:00am for this 1 day event. I'm posting this early as I have had a lot of questions as to when our next Heli Fly will be. This is a Heli-only event for Scale, nitro, Electric, 3D. I will post more information about the Fun fly when we get closer to October 13th. See for more details as they unfold.

We are reorganizing the flight lines so there will be easier access to the flight line with your vehicles and tents. In other words, we are hoping to get all pilots in position on the flight line with their vehicles where possible. Of course it is first come first serve basis for Pilots. We are also working on a charity raffle in addition to our regular prize raffles. We will be announcing prizes, sponsors, etc. in the coming weeks. Our event has gained enough interest that We will be posting hotel details for out-of-town attendees and pilots.

Please sign on if you plan to come. It's always nice to have a rough head count so we can plan food and beverages accordingly.

Sponsors will be announced shortly. It looks like the raffle is going to be an impressive one this year. Some of our raffle proceeds will go to our local Boys and Girls Club to fund an RC Aeronautics Program. Stand by for more information as it unfolds.

I'll be posting hotel info for those coming from out of town soon. The closest hotel with decent accommodations is the Holiday Inn by the Braves Stadium. This is providing there isn't a home game for the playoffs.

In addition you can support the Atlanta Boys and Girls Clubs by entering a 50/50 raffle for the benefit of a RC Aeronautics Educational Program. More sponsorship info to come as it unfolds.

Our event is a heli-only, 1 day event allowing Nitro, Electric, Scale and 3D. We have even seen a few turbines in the past. I couldn't find an events thread here that is heli only for nitro and electric. I'm open to having a moderator move this thread if there is a more appropriate location for it.

This is our 5th Annual event and the second year we have held it the second week of October. There is/was no intention of instigating anything. This event date was announced on 3-4 different forums back in May.

Raffle Terms and more info

It is important to note that you must be present to win any raffle items.

We have lots of nice items from Readyheli, Helidirect, and Synergy RC for the Pilot's Raffle. One of our members has donated Rotor Rage Fuel that will be available in the Pilot's Raffle. Each Pilot will get a Pilot's Raffle ticket when they pay their $10 registration fee.

The 50/50 Raffle and Alees Rush 750 Kit are public raffles and are separate from the Pilot's Raffle. We are in the process of determining a fair price for the Rush 750 raffle tickets. The 50/50 raffle proceeds will be split between the winner and The Atlanta Boys and Girls Club to benefit their RC Aeronuatics Program. Proceeds from the Rush 750 Kit (compliments of Readyheli) will also benefit The Atlanta B&G Club RC Aeronautics Program.

For up to date information, follow our Facebook page:
Or see our Club web site:
