10th Anniversary of Airmeet


Our Airmeet is the RC sports show of the year and has become the highlight of the season for the entire RC scene over the past 10 years. The core part of the airmeet is the impressive non-stop air show, which is all about jets, bi-planes, helicopters and copters. From the high-end self-build to the entry-level aircraft for any beginner – at the Airmeet they are flown by the best of the best. Again this year, the lineup of the pilots is more than impressive. First-class show acts with original aircrafts, from silent elegance with the Blanix team all the way to the 1500 hp sensational Warbird and the mighty T-28 Trojan. Spectacular and precise, with rousing acoustic and breathtaking aerobatic maneuvers. Other highlights include the 1,600 qm² RC race course with Race-Cup, an FPV arena to give it a whirl and an RC raffle where EVERY ticket wins.
