2013 Independence Day Pre-Firework Airshow/Fly-in

The 2013 Independence Day pre-firework R.C. Airshow/Fly-in was a huge success with Approximately 30 aircraft, 9 pilots, a multitude of pilots in training and a massive crowd. This was surely one of the largest R.C. airshows of all time with the crowd growing to approximately 20,000 people by the end of the night (according to the Eaglewood Fireworks Event Organizer) in North Salt Lake City, Utah.  Take a look at the video below and you will see that the skies were alive.  Pilots and spectators alike had a blast.  Everyone loved the show which featured a few crashes, a couple of very near mid-air collissions (caught on video below 🙂 ), one crash into the water and one crash of the Polaris Seaplane into the only obstacle (A fountain) on the large open water pond (also caught on video below), and a banner pulling plane featuring a stars and stripes banner, a “God Bless America” Banner and a banner comprised of two large flags being pulled one above the other simultaneously.  Watch the video to see how much fun this group has become and then come join us!


Some of the aircraft featured included, an RC-Powers F-117 V2 Stealth Fighter Jet, an RCPowers F-22 V2 Raptor fighter jet, an FRCFoamies Alpha Jet, a Polaris Sea Plane, a T-28 Trojan, a Dynam SBach, a P-47 Thunderbolt, Exceed RC’s Concept X 64mm EDF, a Super Cub, a Stryker S-27Q, Blade 500X & Blade 300X helicopters, a multicopter, an EasyStar Drone featuring an Autopilot/FPV setup, a multitude of slow sticks and a modified L.E.D. lit bi-wing slow stick, among other aircraft.
