It's Time for FPV Fest 2021!

Here's some info on FPV Fest from ReadyMadeRC.

RMRC FPV Fest is an incredibly fun event that is being held again at Flite Test's new golf course turned RC paradise in Minerva, Ohio. From Friday to Sunday, the entire course is shut down just for RC pilots to enjoy. Fun is the name of the game and we try to have as much of it as we can cram into 3 long days and nights. Contests, racing, and free flight are what you can expect to find here along with friends of the hobby. FPV (First person view), LOS (Line of sight), and RC cars are ALL welcome!

Meet some of the popular YouTube personalities from the Flite Test crew and fly along with them!

MultiGP chapter QRGO returns to bring multirotor racing to FPV Fest. Thank you, Paul and crew! They'll be setting up Friday Morning, with fun flying Friday afternoon and racing on Saturday. For the drone racers, come for the racing and stay all weekend!

Here are some updates:

Following last year's "COVID" event, we are keeping things simple. The RMRC store will not be available, and we will not have an official announcer, but the fun will still be here! Paul Adkins will be running a single Multi-GP track on the main flight line instead of 2 tracks.

The event is going from Friday August 6th through mid-day Sunday. You are welcome to arrive Thursday evening, but we won't be set up until Friday. CAMPING IS NOW HANDLED BY FLITE TEST! You will check in with them to purchase and get a camping pass. The price for camping is $15/night. (no electrical hookups, no showers)

Ticket prices are staying at $30 since we're keeping it simple. One day passes for Friday or Saturday are $15.

So how are things going to be run this year?:

  • Flite Test's Edgewater Airpark is a huge facility with plenty of room for proper social distancing.
  • As part of keeping things simple, the RMRC store will NOT be available on site.
  • We encourage the use of store pickup ahead of time and we can bring your items to the event.
  • For those that sign up in advance, you can use coupon code FPVFEST2021 for 10% off any order through August 10. Good only for those signed up (and once we get the coupon set up for you). Some restrictions apply.
  • Make sure you add the comment "BRING TO FPV FEST" if you want us to bring the items with us to the event! Orders must be placed before 2:00pm Thursday August 5 to be brought to the event.
  • Flite Test is supplying restrooms since they are handling camping. THERE WILL BE NO SHOWERS THIS YEAR.
  • Food can be purchased on-site at the golf course restaurant. Diane offers some great food options!
  • Frequencies will be claimed with personal magnets and 30 minute time slots that we used last year.
  • No Frequency cards will be given.
  • Management will be based on the honor system.
  • Don't shoot anyone down....DON'T PLUG IN WITHOUT HAVING YOUR TIME SLOT RESERVED!

We're looking forward to a fun event this year! Let's get past all this COVID stuff and get out there and FLY TOGETHER! FPV Fest has been a blast at Edgewater Air Park the last couple years. We're going to put together a group buy of the new version of the Night Radian in the next couple days as well, so if you want in on it get signed up asap!
