E/xpo in the UNI Dome - Cedar Falls, IA - Feb 16-17, 2008
I got this e-mail today about an upcoming event in Northern Iowa. I'm thinking about going down there if I can find someone or some others that want to come with.
The E/xpo in the UNI Dome Indoor Electric Fly-In will be held again this
year on February 16th and 17th. Registration and Check-in at 8AM. Flying
from 9AM until 6PM (Saturday) / 5PM (Sunday)
"This event is about flying, not watching other people fly!" That's what
one of our flyers said last year. He had attended another major indoor
event and spent most of his time watching other people fly. In two days he
only got in seven flights. At "E/xpo in the UNI Dome 2007", he said he got
so much flying time that his fingers were tired. That's the way we do
indoor flying in Iowa! If you want to fly everything you've got and fly
till you drop, this is the event for you. Most of the time will be open
flying, but there will also be pylon racing, combat and other special
events. Bring lots of charged up Li-Po's, because you will need them.
We've got 17 flying stations and no waiting to fly.
The UNI Dome is the 16,000 seat domed indoor football stadium for the
University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA. The UNI Dome is a "hard
roof" with no fans or blowers inside, so it's perfect for everything from
slow flyers to 3D to helicopters. The flying field is 120 yards long with
a 160 foot ceiling. The entire football field is available for R/C flying
with additional airspace over the seats on the East side of the stadium.
The flight line is 100 yards long. One end of the field is for 3D aircraft
& helicopters and the other end is for "racetrack" or circular pattern
flying. Fixed wing aircraft must have a flying weight of less than 20 oz.
Door prizes for flyers and spectators. R/C and food vendors on site.
There's no other event like this one, so don't miss it! Register now using

event, see what the inside of the UNI Dome looks like, find driving
