Seff 2020

SEFF time is just around the corner. Here is the info to kick off the SEFF section for 2020.


SEFF 2020


April 27th - May 2nd


Americas, GA (Link to more info)


Welcome to SEFF 2020. Come and enjoy a great week fun, fellowship, and flying. This year the majority of the main runway we will have pure sport and park flyers. There is no limit to the size of the aircraft. On the West end of the runway, we will have 3D with no limit to size. Facing East will be the FPV/Multirotor area and north of that will be Heli area. As we did last year, we have the field set up so that you walk out and fly and have a great time. Please note the following rules:

Make sure you know the flight pattern

Announce "Take off" and "Landing" and if "on the runway" No flying over camping area or stations Have a good time DLG may launch from any location except Heli.

Float flying will be before 9 am and after 5 pm.


All AMA safety codes will be observed during the event. AMA, MAAC or Park Pilot AMA License is accepted and mandatory for all pilots. This will be checked at registration, where pilot badges will be issued and required to be worn to fly at this event.


Katie's Soul Food will be set up behind registration with tables and chairs for all. In Americus, just south of the field there are plenty of places to eat.

Battery Charging Services

A 900 ahr charging station will be available to those who are flying into the event and do not have access to a source battery. This will be available to everyone and will be located at the SEFF Pilot Registration area.

RC Radio Management

If you are still on 72MHz please notify staff so we can keep up with how many are on site. Most folks are now on 2.4GHz and this is not an issue.


Official SEFF T-shirts are now available for pre-ordering. We will be selling Gildan shirts with the 2018 design on the back. If you would like a shirt, it's recommended that you order at time of preregistration, as there will be a limited number of shirts available for sale at the event. You will receive your shirt order when you arrive and register at the event. Sizes: S,M,L,XL are $12, 2XL & 3XL are $15. Pre-order

Show Central

Show central will be the location for our Sponsors. Vendors have a choice as to be located near show central or out on the flight line. Just ask around if you are looking for a specific vendor and most folks will know where they are located. A big Thanks to our Sponsors - FlexInnovations, Castle Creations and RC Groups.

NOTE: The only businesses allowed to market their company or products at this event are our Sponsors and Vendors. If you want to sell product at the event, you must be registered as a Vendor in one of our Vendor Mall areas. We will be happy to install a banner on the flightline for all our sponsors/Vendors. With the exception of your assigned Vendor Mall area, no banners, flags, signs, etc. for commercial enterprises are allowed anywhere on the property unless approved by the Event Director. No marketing materials or products can be given out or sold at the event without prior approval by the Event Director.

Press Passes

Please email the Event Director, Bob Barnard for a press pass.

Ice For Sale

Ice will be available on-site for $3 a bag.

Given that most state Governors are calling for cancellation of events of over 200 people, due to the corona pandemic, is the SEFF on or not?
