Very interested so I might just have to give this event a look even though I will not have an IR system ready by then.

Very interested and only a short drive away, so I might just have to give this event a look even though I will not have an IR system ready by then.

I'm sure we can fix you up with a loaner, we have lots of extras. Everybody gets to battle, tank or no tank. The museum is great too. Hope you can make it.

Had a chance to stop by for a few hours and meet folks, watch a few battles and drive my tanks. Over had a good time. Thanks for posting the event I looking forward to the next one when my IR systems will be up and running.

Glad to hear you made it out. LA Tank club and the museum considered it a success. Preliminary numbers show about 40 tankers who IR battled throughout the day. A highlight of the day was the big bargain bin sale from the museum's 1/16 tank warehouse which was stuffed with HL tank parts and surplus tanks.

I'll post a full after action report as the facts and figures roll in. It looked to be one of the best yet.

I’m glad I was able to sneak for a short period, first time to see and watch the battle. That bargain bin is really a bargain.
Looking for future fest.

Post photos, please.

This June event is less than 20 miles away, I have RC IR tanks, but the timing is impossible. It either takes place on my wife’s birthday or birthday weekend. Great wife for sure, but she is not an RC enthusiast, though supports my RC hobby interests (she bought the Tamiya Lang and Abrams Kits). So, both of us hanging out at an RC IR tank battle in South El Monte would not be fun for the wife and the grief factor it might cause me would no doubt be catastrophic, if I abandoned her for a little RC Tank fun.
