JCSF Thursday night "Vapor Games"


Guys,

After the success of last year's tent fly-in we've decided to do it again this year!

On the Thursday night of NEAT Fair we'll again be hosting our "under the big top" fly-in, or now known as the "Vapor Games" The format will be very similar to last year's version, where we'll have a series of timed and scored events that pilots will navigate. We'll have some old favorites (obstacle course, carrier landing), some new ones (Skee-vapors), and removed those that didn't quite work out (i.e. balloon burst). We're working on one or two others that may get introduced at the time of the event.

To complete you'll need a Vapor/Ember or some other type of indoor slow flyer. Pilot registration will start at 8pm, with the fun kicking off around 8:30.

As in keeping with last year's event we'll have awards for the winning pilots. In addition, thanks to Hitec/Multiplex we'll also have a free pilots raffle!!! The good folks at Hitec/Multiplex were generous enough to donate the following for our event:
  • Multiplex Shark w/floats
  • Hitec Weekender Corsair
  • Hitec Weekender P51

You don't have to win an event to have a chance at one of these beauties- just participate in the competition!

To make things even more fun, we'll again have our smoke machine churning away, and if we're lucky we'll have the bubble machine going too. It'll be a blast!!!

Hopefully we'll have a good turn-out. I'll post updates as we get closer and if there are any updates. See you then

Rob

I've seen the umx radian selling a lot, any interest in some kind of umx radian event? Mass radian fly or lmr competition? Obstacle course could be fun. These things fly so well and are really cheap, and I'm thinking there will be a lot of them at neat.

Sounds like we need a new thread

Will Nanos and other micro quads be allowed? If so I'll need to get some more practicing in

Hi Hank,

Yes, if you have a mini Vapor you're welcome to fly it. We just don't want planes that are much larger than a Vapor (hard to fly inside the tent ).
