Southeast Electric Flight Festival (SEFF) 2018!


Just got back from having a great time at SEFF 2018 !

For those who may not know, the Southeast Electric Flight Festival (SEFF) is one of the oldest all electric RC flight events in the United States. It is a weeklong event held in Americus Georgia at Mac Hodges Field. Hodges field is acres upon acres of nicely cut Bermuda grass surrounding a small pond, perfect for float planes

I had a GREAT time with old friends, made new friends, and saw many unique and one-of-a-kind models cruising through the Georgia skies...

That said, I'll be using this thread as a sort of "V-LOG" and posting the MANY videos I shot over the course of the week, so stay tuned as they'll be popping up here in the blog for the next few MONTHS !

First up, here's Rich Baker as he puts the FMS 1700mm F7F Tigercat "La Patrona" through it's paces at SEFF 2018 !

E-flite V900 High-Speed Sport Plane with Craig Greening!


Had a chance to see the new E-flite V900 tearing up the skies over SEFF....WOW !
E-flite V900 BNF Basic - FIRST LOOK & SPEED DEMO with CRAIG GREENING! SEFF 2018 (9 min 53 sec)


Sorry ahead of time for the plane disappearing at times; she's hard enough to see streaking through the skies with the naked eye, much less trying to track this thing going 120 mph through a camera screen

On 3s she's extremely fast....on 4s, she flat out COOKS !

John Morgan's Brewster F2A Buffalo - MAIDEN FLIGHT!

She was VERY nose-heavy and the pilot did a great job getting her down, despite the slow-motion flip at the end...

She's already repaired and will be making her next outing at St. George Utah at the end of September !
