RCS Fest 2018

June 15, 2018 - June 17, 2018

RCS Fest is an event hosted by TheRcSaylors. This is a weekend long RC festival, where hobbyists across the world can come to fly and drive their favorite remote control vehicles while making lifelong friendships! The goal of this event is simply to have fun. Anyone and everyone is welcome no matter your skill level or what part of the hobby you enjoy most (planes, drones, cars, etc.). We are so excited to see you there!

The event will be held at the Vinton County Airport in New Plymouth, Ohio on a mile long full scale runway. Bring your planes, multirotors, and FPV gear! However, we enourage you to bring your ground vehicles as well because there will be plenty of areas to bash!
