A buddy of mine and I went for the first time last year. Something I wanted to do for years but never had time. If it was an hour drive and they had copious quantities of heli stuff I'd go again. Nice show but wasn't impressed.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

Takes me about 4 hours. Makes for a long day but I enjoy it. I take it you remember going to it when it was at the hockey arena?

Took us 6 hours to get there on Thursday stayed at a hotel overnight. Was at the show ALL day Friday, stayed Friday night got up early Saturday and drove home. I'm not use to traveling and it made for a long 3 days. But on the bright side, I saw a lot of interesting stuff close up.

Have been to almost every Toledo show in the last 30+ years. To me it always means that the R/C season is starting! The show has certainly changed over the years and there is less and less heli stuff every year it seems. Personally I like anything R/C so I still like to go. The fun thing for me is that last year my kids were old enough to go for the first time and they asked if they could go again this year!

I've missed it once since 1976. Great memories of the old
Sports Arena. Had my appendix out 3 days before one year,
spent a lot of time in the bleachers. Then down for another
walk through, to see what I missed last time.

I'm going. I was coerced into buying a DJI Phantom 3 for some video work for the APBA (American Power Boat Association not the bowling people). I guess I'll go and see what's new in the drone world as it could relate to my project. I'm not a drone defector. I have a fleet of nitro 50 and 90 size helis.

I'm going, Don't have a choice I will be working. I always enjoy the show, I would expect a ton of Drone stuff again this year. The hope of the WeakSignals show/club is that we can convert the new Drone buyers into Heli, plane guys.

Missing it this year
But haven't missed many in the past 30+ years. I can remember when it was held at the Lucas County Recreation Center in Maumee, I lived in the neighborhoods across the street then, 1960's.

I have been going for the last 4 years (Friday only) and always look forward to it. As someone stated earlier, starts off the flying season. About a 4hr drive from Indy, but well worth it. Last year was a bit of a bummer because the transformer issue, but you can't blame the RC side of it. That was on the venue.

Transformer blew and then there was no power or limited power in the place Friday. It was so difficult to see things and most of the vendors displays were affected...
