7th Annual Central Florida FPV Meet - March 1st 2018


It's time once again for the CFL FPV Meet, brought to you by ReadyMadeRC! That's right, one of the biggest and best FPV meets in North America is back for another round!

We will once again be hosting this tear's event at Camp Challenge. Not only is it a nice large flying location, but it just happens to be attached to 43 acres of summer camp! That means things like cabins and bunks available to rent, real showers and bathrooms, pavilions, fire pits, nature trails, a playground, and all sorts of other fun stuff!

We've also partnered with Easter Seals Florida, a charity dedicated to helping those with autism and other disabilities, to create an event that not only provides a great experience for us hobbyists, but also gives something back to the community, and helps promote the positive nature of the "drone" community. In this day and age, our hobby needs positive exposure, and we're working to drive that in central Florida. All net proceeds will be donated to help fund Camp Challenge and Easter Seals Florida.


Dates

Thursday, March 1st - Sunday, March 4th


Location

Easter Seals Camp Challenge
31600 Camp Challenge Rd
Sorrento, FL 32776


Registration Info

Registration and additional meet information is available on the CFL FPV website at www.cflfpv.org. Preregistered pilots receive discounted rates, and the first 100 pilots to register will receive one of the new MiMiC-X mini video transmitters, courtesy of UBAD!

This meet typically sells out well in advance of the actual event, so get registered now and secure your spot!


Sponsors

Thanks to our terrific sponsors, we'll be giving away lots of great prizes!

Facilities & Accommodations

• Port-O-Potty’s will be provided on the flying field.
• A food vendor will be onsite during the day.
• Real bathrooms and showers will be available for attendees that are camping onsite in a tent or RV.
• Onsite bunks will be available to rent (see below).


Camping Onsite:

• You may setup a tent or bring an RV. Note that the facility does charge a camping fee, but rates are reasonable and this fee provides a real shower and bathroom.
• There are no water or electrical hookups, so plan to be self-sufficient during your time onsite. Water *may* be available in small quantities through the camp.
• Bringing a generator with power to spare is the quickest way to make new friends and find yourself lord of your immediate area.


Bunking Onsite:

• Bunks will be available to rent in summer camp style cabins.
• Each cabin is communal, and includes 8 to 15 bunks in 1 to 3 rooms.
• Cabins include electricity, air conditioning (yes, you may need it in February in FL), and 2 to 3 bathrooms with showers.
• Bringing the whole club, or a group of friends? Contact us directly if you're interested in reserving an entire cabin just for your group!

Staying onsite may not afford all the luxuries of a fancy hotel, but it is far more economical, and ensures that you'll be there to enjoy all of the late night activities! Want to be a beta tester for the hottest new FPV gadget? Having a compromising photo of your favorite sponsor is the best way to get in the club!
