3rd Annual Southeastern FPV Fly-In at the PecanPatch, June 21-23, 2013


3rd Annual Southeastern FPV Fly-In at the PecanPatch, June 21-23, 2013

Just wanted to get the dates out there so you can make your plans to come to one of the biggest FPV events in the world. The Pecan Patch venue is second to none and if you havnt been there you are really missing out. Its the camaraderie and antics that go on after dark that set this event apart for all the rest. This is the full moon in June so night FPV and other stuff will be in full swing after sundown. More info to come.

We are of planning a FPV fly-in at a sight in Griffin, Ga just south of Atlanta . This will be a 3 day event with the dates being Fri June 21 thru Sun June 23. The field(Pecan Patch Air Strip) is on private property (non 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.

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

Controlled flight hours will be 9am- 7pm Saturday and 9am-5pm Sunday.If needed we will run the flight board friday also. 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. Also if you have Dragonlink v1 please get it updated before this event if you plan to attend.....not sayn you will not be allowed to fly with v1 but you will be bumped from the board if needed to expedite more flights.....you have been warned.

Landing fee to fund a port-a-potty and other expenses will be $20 (covers 3 days)
Camping fee will be $10 per night .
The camping area and field will open at daylight friday.Camp roll up by 5pm Sunday please.

There will be a grill available to use. Also We have added a nice in ground pool that he will open up to any that want to escape the Ga heat .....so bring some swim trunks.....no skinny dippers PLEASE.(Doug included)

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....details below

The pie was Great, but flying with you guys, seeing your setups, and just being there was worth the trip. Besides CaliDave is going to win it this year.
