First CAM Jet Event – Great Success

On April 27, 2019 the Charlotte Aeromodelers club located near Monroe, NC hosted our first ever Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) jet event at our club field. The weather was perfect and we had a great turn out, 33 pilots and a total of 100 pilots and spectators in attendance. Dymond Model Sports, Motion RC and Horizon Hobbies each provided pilot prizes and raffles and was well received and appreciated. We had pilots as far away as Michigan and Virginia come down for the event and enjoy the day with us. Bobby Helms, a club member and chef extraordinaire served smoked BBQ with all the trimmings. Our landowner and fellow club member LouAnn McCracken provided several wonderful desserts. EDF jets are a fast growing part of our hobby and we intend to make this an annual event. Thanks to also to fellow club members Bob Grunden, Dave Mohr, Liem Tran, Dave Warr, Dave Wertz and his wife Mary for volunteering to help with running this event.
