Normally around this time of year (it was scheduled for the 16th/17th May) I'd be going up to Popham airfield to hang out at the MiniAirShow.  Obviously it's canceled this year, but there's going to be a virtual stay-at-home edition with the idea of a number of scheduled live-steams featuring sim racing, live builds, talks about things, and a few competitions.

More details here https://www.facebook.com/miniairshow/

So part one of the reasons for this post is - hey here's something to watch next Saturday.  The other reason is that I'll be doing a live-stream to judge the "Oddball 3000" contest.  The idea of the oddball is it celebrates weird or interesting builds - we've seen bi-copters doing their best avatar impression, flying cars and last year I met someone who created a servo tilt using a camera on a string-pulley.  When I asked him what he didn't just attach the servo to the camera he explained it was his first build and so he hadn't thought of that.  So not necessarily the most impressive builds should apply - weird and novel fits the bill as well.

So I'm looking for entries - given that you've all had oddles of build time, I'm hoping people have been making odd things fly or putting FPV gear on family pets etc etc.  Anything considered.  If you have, please let me know - if you've got a video, of a build log etc, then even better.

I've got a 30 minute slot at the moment, so I'm hoping to be able to showcase a several of these contraptions and perhaps have some of the makers on for a quick chat. 

I'll patiently wait for the flood of exciting entries !

In case you didn't catch it on the day... or since on YouTube here was the Livestream from the day (ignore the first 8 minutes or so, the last session was going over and so I was just filling)



I did ping a message to Rupes on Facebook, but I didn't hear back from him, so sadly no RC horn :(

If you are thinking you can do better, or at least something as interesting.  MA7 should be on next week year, and hopefully, we'll all physically be there (Which means less work for me as I can point to the models on the desk and say "I like that one")  So start building !

Next week or next Year???? Says next year on miniairshow.co.uk?

I did manage to watch live. It was good to see different things. I did like the LED addon, so simple and easy to fit on any quad. I did also like the wing that wouldn't fly  :) Great to see such determination.
I watched a few of the builds, while I was working, which were interesting  :D

Any chance you can add links to the participants channels?

I did like how well your presentation went, flicking between screens and having backups just in case. Great skills there.

Oops, yes next year... I don't think anyone could quite cope with a weekly schedule :)

I should definitely update the description with the channels - some went into more detail in videos, some did not, but here they are -
