KW Flying Dutchen 41st Annual Scale Rally R/C Airshow was held in Canada on 11th - 12th/Sep.

This is a report from Scott.

This event is Canada's largest r/c event. It was the 41st annual event this year, with very good turn out of pilots, airplanes, and spectators. This is my home club, and they have always been very active promoting r/c to the public. The event is not only a fun fly, but a scale airshow and only airplanes modelled after real aircraft are allowed to enter. Each day there is a 2 hour long halftime show with commentary and demonstrations of all kinds of r/c aircraft. It has become a very popular event for public spectators, and helps get more people into the hobby.

Over 1500 spectators were present for the event, and more than 200 r/c airplanes and pilots. I did r/c heli demos each day at the show times of 3D heli flight to music with a Vibe 90SG. This was my 17th time attending this event to demo helicopter. The helicopter is always a crowd favorite since it is mainly an airpalne event. There were jets, and candy drop airpalne for the kids and all other eras of airplanes shown. The very popular Saturday night fly was rained out this year, but there was good weather during both days otherwise.

JR and Spektrum are quite popular for the airplane pilots here, but there are still a good number of 72mhz being used. A number of other Team JR/Horizon members were present from Canada and USA as well, and they did some great demos.
