Greetings! I know I'm not the only Vermonter into R/C Helis., the stores can't keep 'em on the shelves! How can we get a fun-fly / competition in Burlington? Great marketing opp. and customer support for dealers, Brands, clubs as well as after market stuff. A lot of car events but no helicopter (or airplane) events?

It may be a little hard now this year since it is so "late" in the season. Especially with Conn. at the end of the month, Smrcha on the 8th, and 405th and 107th in Ma the last weekend of September.

First, find a club with a nice big field and approach them about a heli funfly. Most clubs will be happy to set aside a weekend just for helis. Make sure you either get the date out early, or not conflict with any funflys within say a 5 hour drive.

Make some flyers up and send it to hobby shops around NE and post on all the heli forums you can think of. See if some local hobby shops would donate some raffle prizes.

If you need any more help let me know,
Paul

A skilled pilot without flight discipline is a walking time bomb.

Greetings Paul, Thank you for the advice and direction. Will give it a try. I would like to set up a "club" for indoor coaxial type R/C helis. here in Burlington. I am disabled, semi-retired Minister. The fun-n-joy I get from flight is like relaxation therapy, something I wish to share. Also a great "Bonding" tool for parents and children.
When I can get outdoors I have a couple Venom Air products, not as successful with them as w/ coaxials but trying to learn!
Clubs in VT. are a different nut to crack and as you stated, the available Fun-Flys are a bit too far to travel.(disability is more an INSULT than INCOME,ha,ha)
Anyway, thanks again for your direction. If I get a ball rollin, you will see my post!
