Default ***Watts over Owatonna 2011***

Good evening fellow RCU members!

Minnflyer and I attended Watts over Owatonna this past weekend, and we had a blast! The event started Friday, July 29th at Noon and ran through the better part of Sunday July 31st.

Owatonna is a city in Minnesota, located about 50 minutes south of Minneapolis.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, Watts is in its second year, and saw great growth from last year. In 2010, there were 20+ pilots that pre-registered for the weekend of flying, and this year brought 90+ pre-registered pilots, with another 30 or so signing up when they got to the field.

Now, the field that the Southern Minnesota Model Aircraft Club, better known as SMMAC, has one of the NICEST fields I've ever seen! If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to get there for an event!

Here are some of the pictures that I took at the Watts Over Owatonna 2011 electric fly in!

Here's the last of the pictures for now... Watch the reviews and articles for the write up coming soon!

If you didn't see your plane in one of these pictures, there's still a chance it will make the article - but I won't make any promises.

Nice collection of models. Really like the little "Zero" toon fighter.
Looks as the weather favored well too.
