2017 Midwest Electric Flight Festival


Hey everyone,
Planning for the Midwest Electric Flight Festival (MEFF) for 2017 has begun. The dates this year will July 7-9th at Walter RC Park in Saranac, Michigan. The event is open to all kinds of electric RC aircraft and also there will be a RC car track and a FPV quad course on site. Camping will be allowed on site and food will be available. A full flyer will be posted once we get all of our sponsors on board. We will be having a raffle on Saturday for the products that will be donated by sponsors. Night flying will also be taking place with light towers. This will be the 3rd annual and the past two years were great. We had a lot of fun and we are hoping it will be bigger and better this year. More info will be posted as we get closer to the event. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!

We are also hoping to do the 3D competitions that we have done in the past once again this year. Here the ones that we plan to do:

-Low Knife Edge Competition
(Each competitor will have two opportunities to impress the crowd with the lowest knife edge pass possible. Meaning two knife edge passes for each pilot.)
2015 Winner: Tristen Lobbezoo
2016 Winner: David Kling

-One Trick Competition
(The goal is to impress the crowd with the most unique, exciting maneuver. Each pilot will have two opportunities to perform either the same maneuver twice or two different maneuvers once.)
2015 Winner: Ashleigh Heath
2016 Winner: Matt Slobe

-3-Minute Smackdown
(Each pilot will have 3 minutes to throw down a flight that impresses the crowd by including exciting, low, unique maneuvers at both high and low speeds. Music is not required, but a pilot can use their own music if they wish.)
2016 Winner: Tristen Lobbezoo


The times that they will take place will be spread out so that plenty of time for open flying can take place between. It is free to enter, and the winners will receive a small prize.
