we love to see all flying machines, and meet the wonder pilots that come with them.

We will be starting to get this going for a great event this year.

JGRC(online hobby shop) is in

will begin to contact the other to make sure they can support us once again, and we need you to support us and them


CHECK out all those pictures form last year and previuos events.


The CD from the previous Wattfest 2011-2012 joined the club and is leading the way to make this a great event. With over 40 pilots last year, camping, rv parking, lots of raffle prizes, and just a great club and great friendly staff and pilots.

October 25-27... The Zephyr continues its long tradition of being one of the best fly-ins in the south.
Located centrally in Florida, right off I-75 in San Antonio, FL.

You can camp; bring your RV as people have done for years. Plenty of room for trailers too.

This continuing annual event is an all electric event... having seen 1/4 scales, 1/3scales, EDF, Helicopters, and just about anything that can fly. Pack your fleet, or pack the family it’s sure to be a good time.
There will be Raffles, pilot prizes, and awards.
If you can you have to be at this one…. Let’s make it an RC EXTRAVAGANZA

And if you’re coming... post pictures of the planes your bringing...
It’s far enough off to that you can even build a plane before then.
