3D Throwdown

June 14, 2024 - June 15, 2024

If it’s got big hinged surfaces and prefers to be inverted, on edge, or wadded up in a snap, this is the event for you!  Wingspans range from 80 to 140+ inches. Although smaller than full-scale aerobatic counterparts, size is not important- just don’t fly right side up. Come see some of our younger protégés and world-class 3D members tear it up. Hard to believe these planes are NOT going out in body bags.

Pattern Contest

June 22, 2024

This is our only competitive event of the year and will bring out the “precision guys.” If you want to see perfect maneuvers performed in a very specific space with absolute control of the plane- this is it. This is way harder than it looks but it’s the basis for every other type of flying. It’s as much a skill as an art.

Central Valley Heli-Fest

September 19, 2024 - September 21, 2024

There's only one way to describe the guys that fly “impossible aircraft”- NUTS! These pilots get so radical with their maneuvers that you'll have a hard time following them. They defy gravity, get as close to the ground as possible, skip down the runway, and do things you will never forget—assuming you can see them. Some of the most talented pilots around gather for 3 days of incredible flying and help Gi Gi’s Playhouse generate donations to assist families and kids with Down Syndrome.

Thunder in the Valley Jet Rally

September 26, 2024 - September 28, 2024

This is the largest collection of both EDF and fuel-powered Jets in NorCal with over 50 of the best pilots in CA and surrounding states. From 1-meter minis to 4-meter monsters the sound, smell and adrenaline are incredible. With 1,000 spectators (over 3 days), this event is great for kids to get excited about RC. This event supports wounded vets through Healing Hero’s.

Profile PowerUP

October 05, 2024

Come see the ugliest, most “flip-floppy” planes on the planet. Similar to 3D aircraft, just not as precise. Typically, smaller they operate in a small space and can do just about any maneuver. Quick, easy and cheap to build making what these pilots do to a plane in the air insane.
