E-Jets and E-Warbirds 2018


E-Jets & E-Warbirds will be held at the TORKS Model Airpark at Deer Creek State Park in Mount Sterling Ohio, September 6th-9th. September 6th will be an “open fly” day for event participants so you can get in maiden flights and sort out aircraft before the “official” event.

The format this year will be similar to last year in that we will let all aircraft fly together. If for any reason this becomes an issue we will separate flying times into two categories between sub 100mph aircraft and high performance airframes.

The runway is about 900x60. Electric is available on site for charging and basic needs. Visit http://www.torks.com/ for field info and pics. NOTE: A group of trees were removed out past the end of the runway for this year!

REGISTRATION PRICING - registration PDF attached
•On-site registration fee = $40 / Pre-registration fee = $30
•Shelter / tent space fee = $30
•To ensure a shelter / tent space, please pay with your pre-registration fee. We cannot guarantee a tent space for those who register on-site but we anticipate some will still be available.

Send a PM to me, or note that you want a tent space in your pre-registration.

Concessions will be available on site. Texas Tenderloin food truck (same as last year). They will be serving breakfast and lunch.

LODGING INFORMATION

Room rates are 115.99 which is approximately a 30.00 discount. We also have the nice party room reserved again for the Saturday night banquet. I would recommend booking the rooms sooner than latter. Additional rooms could be available if booked early enough. The park removed over 40 trees at the north end of the runway to open things up a bit. Makes a nice difference. Hope to see everyone in September!

Well it's nice when you have a brand new camper to camp in.

I'll be attending again this year. As long as someone doesn't have a loud generator running all night long, I'll be tenting it.

I know we are all gearing up for the EDF Jet Jam but don't forget about this event. This is a beautiful flying field. I know I'm going again.

Would be another good motionrc publicity event.
If the F-100 is fixed in time we'll try it again.
Getting the Y/A F-16 ready now plus bringing the Cobra , Euro , SU35 , and freewing F-15.

Now that that your other favorite electric jet event has passed, and it was great!, its time to start updating this thread...

First off, we have heard from some of our sponsors and are happy to give some updates...


Schubeler Technologies GmbH - Will be providing a Schubeler HDS 80mm fan and motor combo of the winners choice for a pilots prize at the lodge event.

BuddyRC - Will be providing pilots prizes, to be determined

BVM Will be providing some pilots prizes, to be determined.

Horizon Hobby - Will be providing pilots prizes to be determined.


We have confirmed the same food vendor for this year as well, and we all know it was very good.


We are working with other sponsors and will have updates as we confirm.

Please pm me or Terry if you are interested in a space under the big tent. If needed we can order a larger tent or multiple tents.

E-Jets International was started 10 years ago, we did miss one year in there after we lost our field, but thanks to e-pilots like you and our sponsors, we are still going strong!

Decided to mount the fan further aft so I can place the batteries farther forward for easier accesstaxied today. Seemed pretty streight.
HET 1400kv would not fit into the Cobra fan so gonna leave it in old yeller 10s.
This aircraft is 23 yr old.
I first built it in 1995
