Don't Miss This Event!

Last February, JR, E-flite and Spektrum were Gold Sponsors of the very first E-Fest—and it was so enormously successful, it became one of the largest electric flight indoor events of 2006. Again this year on February 10–11, you will find JR, E-flite and Spektrum as Gold Sponsors of this very popular event. Don’t miss it!

E-Fest 2006 attracted over 200 pilots, including such famous names as Sean McMurtry (USA), Yoichiro Ono (Japan), and Quique Somenzini (Chile). "Spectacular" was how Fly R/C magazine described the Heli Smackdown and Black-Out Nite Flying events. Overall, they found E-Fest to be "a ton of fun for everyone."

In a few weeks you'll have another chance to join in the fun yourself, when Great Planes hosts E-Fest 2007. Like last year, the festival will let participating pilots stretch their skills to the limit...and spectators can shake off the winter doldrums by watching edge-of-your-seat indoor aerobatics. It’s also a wonderful time to fly with your buddies in this excellent facility. Both days of E-Fest allow several hours for open flying. Specific times are reserved for slow flyers, jets, helis, 3-D, combat, and sponsored demos. By popular demand, Saturday's fun again concludes with "Black-Out Nite Flying"...when the Armory fills with music and flying LEDs.

E-Fest will be held at the University of Illinois Armory Track and Field facility in Champaign, Illinois. With its 100-foot ceiling and vast open space, the Armory offers an ideal stage for hot R/C indoor flying during cold winter days.

Don't miss this winter's Big Event in R/C indoor flying. For complete information about E-Fest—admission and registration details, schedules, lodging, maps and more—visit the festival website at
