3D Throwdown

Ticket Per Person: $25.00

When: June 14 – 15, 2024 at 9 am

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.
