E-Fest: The Greatest Indoor Airshow We've EVER Seen!
While at E-Fest 2015, it’s obvious that ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, had a great time, and he talked with E-Fest committee member Frank Noll to get some background on this great event.
Noll explained that E-Fest is an annual indoor electric R/C Festival that brings together about 250 pilots every February to fly, and to advance their sport. The event takes place at the University of Illinois Track and Field Armory in Champaign, Illinois. The primary sponsor of E-Fest is Hobbico, a major source of the equipment that makes flying indoor electric RC aircraft so much fun.
As Jim and Noll talk about E-Fest, you have the opportunity to watch what appears to be chaos in action. Dozens of small indoor radio controlled aircraft are buzzing around, all at the same time, yet everybody has fun, and it appears they have found a way to share the airspace. Noll talks about the various activities which include flying difficult courses, and combat events. You get a chance to see all of this in the video.
E-Fest shows the best there is in combining a hobby into a family style event. This video is just ‘plane’ fun to watch.
