MiniAirShow, May 12th-13th at Popham Airfield
« on: March 18, 2018, 01:24:49 AM »

Just wondered if anyone was going along to this.  It's not something I've been to before, but it's organised in large part by one of the guys that does the "Let's Drone Out" podcast that I've been on a few times - which is why I heard about it.

There's some competitions - quad and wing racing, indoor stuff, and some open flying (although you'll need to buy a specific ticket to fly, and have valid insurance and for FPV be on 25mw only), but there's vendors there and a bar and some shows and stuff.  A bunch of other YouTube folks like Painless360 and AndyRC should be there as well (and possibly David Winderstall)

Spectators also get to go in for free - due to the fact it would be huge amounts of hassle to jump through the hoops the council have for this.  I'm going, but not flying - not because I'm a cheapskate (although I am) but because I can get too focused on flying at any meetup and I'd really like to hang out, meet up with some people and look at other peoples builds etc.

Anyone else going ?  Mini-fpvhub meetup perhaps.

Website with directions etc is here http://miniairshow.co.uk/

I have been every year, and have podium-ed in the team race every time.  ;D

It is always a great event, but that was partly down to the location at Hidden Valley. I am sure this year will be great fun too though.

Sadly i can not make it this year.

This and all other events around the UK can as always be found on the calendar here:

I'll be going, I'm quite new to fpv quads and am not too far away from it, be interesting to see what the UK has to offer, after watching nearly all the you tube stuff being in and around America and I'm sure the following over here is much smaller but it will be nice to see people in one place with the same thing on their minds, lets hope the weather holds up.

Dont expect anything on the standards of America or an event with a huge budget. All of our events in the UK are put on by volunteers with their own cash or what ever pennies we can scrape together from sponsors.

What makes our events so good are the people. Everyone is always so friendly and happy to help out, talk to each other and generally have a god laugh.

Here is a video i made of the 2016 MAS for an example:

Iím a member at Popham Drone Zone so will be going but not flying.  Should be good to see how Fast the professionals are.
If the weathers good should be a good turnout.

Looks like the sun (canít really remember what it looks like) has finally made an appearance today!

I'm going along to watch but not fly; partly because I don't think my skills are up to it, but also because I currently have 7 projects at various stages of progress, but nothing actually flyable at the moment - I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm a builder, not a flier  :-X

Probably going for the Saturday, but close enough that I might come back for the Sunday if the weather is good.
