Electrics Over Tidewater (EOT)

Join us on Saturday the 16th of September for the Mid-Atlantic's premier Electric Fly-In. This will be our 12th annual Electrics Over Tidewater or "EOT" as we like to call it. The event will be held at the beautiful Newport News Park R/C Club. Night flying till the cows come home on the night of the 16th.

If it's electric and it flies, bring it!! We have a very nice 400' long paved runway that is very friendly to electrics of all types. And all types of aircraft are welcome. From micro to giant scale, heli's and quads, and whatever else is propelled by electric as long as it flies.

This is a low key fun fly with maybe an event or two thrown in, depends on the mood everyone is in...Of course there will be a few sessions of full contact, fly whatever you want, combat. We also have a FPV race course set up for those so inclined.

We will have three flying awards:
  Pilot's Choice - Best in Show
  Most Flights
  Best Night Flight

AMA membership is required as this is a sanctioned event at an AMA field.

Landing fee is only $15. Lunch will be provided and once again will feature "Raptor Afterburner Chili".

I hope to see you there!
