    At Horizon RC Fest, our guests are a part of the action. Activities will include Try-Me radio control activities that feature airplanes, drones and flight simulators, along with Rock Crawler challenges and off-road ECX® Amp® racing. Exciting FPV ride-along chances and FPV race viewing stations featuring national-level race competitors will be on station. Amateurs and experts in the hobby will be demonstrating rip-roaring car action, as well as flights of fancy with aircraft and helicopters that stretch the imagination. There will be all kinds of surprises along the way, with daylight and nighttime air shows choreographed to musical accompaniment.

    There’s something for everyone, even without a transmitter in hand. Sales and displays of industry-leading RC product will be showcased with purchase specials only available at the show. All the planning has been done for you, as local food services will be on hand to offer refreshment.

    Horizon Hobby will be doing live feeds during the RC Fest event. We may be doing a feed via Live RC during the 1/5th event in July.

    OK guys, attached are a few pics from yesterday. I hope to have a panoramic shot by tomorrow. At this point all looks good for the Open House this Saturday and the Horizon RC Fest on the 1/10th. New AMB system is here and I will have an addition 10 loaner transponders for the Dirt Blast in July. May have it up and running this weekend for some mock races during the day. Note that there is a smaller 1/10th track in the near center currently. This area will be modified for 1/5th use before the dirt Blast. Don't have any images of the drivers stand yet but we have a 40ft. shipping container with a canopy left to install yet.Plenty of AC power available as well.

    Hate to say it but now we need some rain to settle things in a bit.

    Hi lee m

    That track looks amazing would love to race on it but not even in your country.

    We don't have anything like that near me....

    I am working with Horizon so that we will have parts available for sale at the track during the Dirt Blast. Of course we can only support Losi and TLR brand vehicles.
