|Description:||The Suburban RC Barnstormers again invite you to a night’s worth of warm, wind-free, indoor Electric Park flying at the 2nd largest golf dome in the USA. Located just south-west of Chicago’s O’Hare airport, at 500 W. Jefferson St. (3rd Ave.), Bensenville, the White Pines Golf Dome is an indoor pilot’s prayer come true. It’s 300’ wide by 300’ deep and it’s 10 stories tall! As one pilot said: “It’s not like flying in a gym, it’s like you’re outside at a park!” |
And, we haven’t forgotten newer pilots. Our instructors will be available to help set up your airplanes, helicopters and quadcopters. We have “Buddy Box” radios to help you get started. Finally, we have a Real Flight simulator on-site; but it’s not just on a computer monitor, it on an 8’ tall by 10’ wide screen. It’s so big you get the feeling you’re flying “out at the field!” The Sim is available all night – for free.
For those of an aggressive ilk, we have streamer and ultimate combat events, Lights-Out flying, and two areas for 3D and heli practice. And don’t forget our usual great Raffle!
Doors open at 11:00 pm on Saturday night, Dec 14, 2013, and close at 3:00 am Sunday. Entry is $15 for AMA pilots and $2 for spectators. TrueRC will be on site with batteries, aircraft and equipment for sale, and the WPG Dome has sandwiches, coffee and snacks available. Contact Stan Warden at FrenchStan@ComCast.Net or 630-654-8476. To see our pilots in action, go to Vimeo.com or YouTube.com and search for “White Pines Golf Dome”. Also see SuburbanRCBarnstormers.com for more Rules, sizes, and more info.
This is an AMA Sanctioned Event, #13-2200.
