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.http://www.fai.org/ciam-events/ciam...alendarId=10641http://rcheli-wchs2017.pl/
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 F3N2017@gmail.com
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
Stay tuned for further updates…
