Greetings fellow R/C model helicopter enthusiasts,

My Name is Greg Jackson, and I am a Team Member for the 2017 USA F3N Model Helicopter World Championships Team. This post is inspired by a previous Team USA F3C campaign. The 2017 F3N World Championships are scheduled to be held July 22 – 29, 2017 in Wloclawek, Poland.

The US F3N Team pilots are Jamie Robertson, Nick Maxwell and Greg Jackson.

I am in need of your help to raise sufficient funds to support this important trip. While the F3C team will receive support from AMA, the F3N Team will not receive any support since this is the first year. It is important for this year's team to do well so that future teams might receive support from AMA. Therefore, the team relies completely on outside contributions. There is a strong possibility of the US Team placing extremely well with the wealth of talent. It is my hope that more awareness will be raised for RC helicopters, and hopefully bring in more hobbyists to support the industry.

Additionally, if you think your club would be interested in making a donation, or know of a prospective corporate sponsor, please let me know via PM or email at

I will be very transparent. Each dollar will be accounted for and used only for World Championships: travel and lodging, registration fees, shipping costs for equipment. After championships, if there is anything leftover whatsoever, a donation will be made to a charitable cause. Here is an idea of the costs to send a Team:

Airline tickets: $1750 (hopefully less)
Registration Fees: est. $700
Car rental: $750 each
Model and battery shipping unknown
Lodging: $2000

Stay tuned for further updates…

Greg Jackson

Donations made through AMA are tax deductable
Greg, et al,
Please note that donations to support FAI US Teams are tax deductible if made through the AMA. The monies are collected and distributed to the team members 100%, no administrative fees are incurred. They can be earmarked for a specific FAI team. Any left over funds are banked in the respective team funds to be used by the next WC teams, plus they earn a little bit of interest!

Best Regards,

I mentioned this in the main discussion thread, but AMA is not helping as far as a separate fund associated at their headquarters. I wanted to have a F3N fund, but it is not happening. To be honest, I do not understand why, but I have to stay positive and keep trying.

Edit, AMA now has a F3N Team account so all donations are made there.
