1/2A RC and Control Line Gathering


Calling all passionate 1/2A pilots, this event is for you!

On Nov 19, 2017, we will be celebrating 1/2A control line and RC model aviation with a mass gathering at Apollo Field in Van Nuys, CA. Many of us started flying 1/2A control line when we were kids and now it's time to celebrate 1/2A, and we're going BIG! Hoping to have more than 100 on display. We're encouraging pilots from around the country to bring all of your 1/2A models flying or static for a large group photo. We will be flying all day and sharing our passion for 1/2A. Myself and my buddy, Tony Nacarrato are planning to make this an annual gathering and possibly a two day event. The word is spreading around the Southwest and beyond.

Bring'em, if ya got'em...and please spread the word. Hope we see you there.

Best,
Tony

Will do Martin! The 1/2A Non-Contest will be well covered by multiple photographers. I'll shoot video as well.

Nothing is for certain yet but the dates align with the traditional first weekend of June for the event and most of our folks arrive on Thursday, which would be May 31, 2018.
