Mulberry is back this year!

IRCC "Heli Spectacular" Fun Fly- November 7 - 9 Mulberry, FL. This event has been established as one of the top R/C Helicopter events held annually.

The timing also makes it one of the last opportunities of the year for "heli" pilots to get in some flying in great weather. As always there is a large flight line for freestyle and 3D flying.

There will be some of the best 3D pilots in Florida in attendance!

We are adding FAI to the activities list for those who want to learn and participate.

There will be clinics and plenty of experienced scale pilots who can assist in 518 competition and they will be available to assist novice and entry level pilots.

There is adequate parking space for motor homes/travel trailers and tents at the field. (No Hook-ups) Entry fee $20.00 for all 3 days

This combined with the great facility in Mulberry makes it a must for many of the top "heli" pilots. In 2008 we are again running a mostly "fun-fly' only format.

There will be no airspace issues, frequency issues or other distractions. Just fly and have a great time. Where else can one have a blast with 3D, Scale and FAI!

More information will be posted soon. Contact CD David DeWitt for more information: benz425@aol.com.

The IRCC flying field will be open Thursday so early arrivals can set up and start flying. If the gate is closed just lift off the chain and come on in. Registration will open at 8:00 AM on Friday.

Perfect Florida weather with 78 pilots registered. Mike Swift won the auto rotation spot landing contest at 3 5/8" from the mark. Great flying and a lot of fun. Andy very nice meeting you at Mulberry.
