Default Electrics over Tidewater "EOT" 24 & 25 September 2011 Newport News Virginia

EOT IS COMING!

Come join us join us for our 6th annual "Electrics over Tidewater" at the beautiful Newport News Park R/C Club 24 and 25 September 2011. Night flying til the cows come home on the the night of the 24th.

This is a low key fun fly with maybe an event or two thrown in, depends on what mood everyone is in... But of course we will have our combat! We have had some pretty good sessions in prior years, heck one year we had a Klingon Battle Cruiser loose it bridge to a Federation Starship, or was that a Zagi?? Oh well it's fun what ever it is.

If it's electric and it flies bring it! All types of aircraft are welcome. Last year we had everything from the PZ Micro stuff all the way up to a 27% Pitts. Rumor has it you might even get to see a Ritewing do in excess of 140mph!

AMA membership is required as this is a sanctioned event.

Landing fee for one/or both days is only $15. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and once again we will have the Langley Fire Departments famous "Raptor Afterburner Chili"! (it's not really that hot, but it's ohhh so tasty!)

Hope to see everyone then!

Hobby-Lobby of course again for the 5th straight year!

and many others. I've put a full list in post #1

I sure hope some of you can make it to our event, the field is looking great, this summer we had the runway resurfaced, sealed, and the lines repainted. It looks like, well it is, a brand new runway. We have a crew of guys that have been rebuilding all of our work benches and flight stands and they are really looking great as well.

"Electrics over Tidewater", or "EOT" as we all affectionately call it, is really shaping up to be our best year yet. This will be the 6th year we've held it and it has grown every year. We have some great sponsors, a few real nice demos from some of our more accomplished pilots... (not me!) and one very interesting one at that. Fresh back from IRCHA Bruce has a special treat with his "combo copter" as he calls it. will demonstrate how to make a model heli go 112+mph in forward flight. This one you just have to see. In addition to the regular heli rotor there is a big 'ol Scorpion outrunner on the front of it spinning a 11x10 prop propelling the copter forward. Very neat, and surprisingly a very nice flyer!

Our Sponsors have donated some awesome prizes. Horizon Hobby has provided a Spektrum DX8 Radio system! Optics Planet has sent a Bushnell Speedster 3 Radar gun!! AeroWorks sent a gorgeous BD-5 Pusher jet ARF, Atlanta Hobby went over the top again as did Castle Creations, SIG, Hobbico, and on and on.

Luke's RC will be there with all sort of supplies to fix your foamies after one of the combat sessions, as well as a lot of other stuff that I'm sure you won't be able to live without! LOL

The weather forecast is great, the food will be awesome yet again, and the fellowship of like minded RC nuts will be phenomenal.

It's like a big 'ol family reunion... only we all like each other at EOT!

All in all it was a good event. Weather cooperated a lot for those who did come. (those who didn't really missed out)

It was gray and overcast all weekend but there was very little rain that kept us from flying. I'll get pics and videos posted up tonight.
