I think it's about 3 -3.5 hours. Pull a mapquest on it, and it'll give an estimate. Then subtract 10% (works for me )

I'm not sure if they have someone coming or not. The flyer doesn't mention anything. There's going to be some good raffles, I hear.

St. Pete "SPARKS" Fun Fly
Hey guys, went to the fun-fly and let Kyle Davis do some flying with my Raptor 50...training wheels and all! That Kid is AWESOME as a pilot, and if any of you guys reading this are from ThunderTiger, or any other Heli Company for that matter, You should see the way this kid flys a helicopter. (SPONSORSHIP,HINT HINT). It is incredible the control he has over the different models I have seen him fly. I couldnt believe the 3D he was doing while my training wheels were still attached. It Was Mind Blowing to me.

OK, Enough said on That, we had a great time at sparks and met some really nice people. I was really apprehensive about bringing out my heli with training wheels on it, but they made me feel right at home.

Also, I wanted to say thanks to Jeff Davis, Kyles dad and Owner of Hover Hobbies. During the grand prize drawing for a JR Venture 50, Jeff had the winning ticket. Instead of taking the prize back to his store and selling it to cover the costs of the trip to St. Pete, HE GAVE THE GRAND PRIZE VENTURE TO A LUCKY KID THAT WAS A SPECTATOR INTERESTED IN OUR HOBBY!!!!!!!!

Thanks to SPARKS for having us, and JEFF and KYLE From Hover Hobbies for really making it an enjoyable day.
