Hi Everyone.

Once again this year we are holding our UK Live event on Elmsett Airfield where our UK Warehouse is based on Saturday September 8th. The event is aimed as a fun day for everyone and for those who wish to fly it is a relaxed, no pressure fun fly event for pilots of all capabilities.

We have plenty of room for RC aircraft as we use the main grass runway and this year once again we will have a very large area for Drone flying. Unlike other years we will not have any formal Drone racing, just a large area where you can do some relaxed flying.

Other attractions will be a static model boat display, model truck displays on a large diorama track, hopefully vintage vehicles and fire engines and a full size air display by Mark Jefferies in an Extra 300, last year he was absolutely stunning, a display not to be missed. Also once again if operations allow we may have the East Anglian Air Ambulance drop in on us, if they do then they will allow you to sit inside in the pilots seats etc. The day is aimed at something for all the family as well as those interested in RC modelling, we will even have a Bouncy Castle for the kids.

Also we will have the HobbyKing show tent showing the latest products from your favourite online retailer and a large marquee full of scratch and dent items that have been returned to us which we will be selling at bargain prices (cash only). We will also have an area in this marquee where we will be selling special offer items at discounted prices, these can be purchased using cash or credit cards.

The warehouse will be open all day for the collection of orders and we will also have an area where we will have some computers set up so that you can order and take home your purchases on the day.

Camping will be available on the Friday and Saturday nights, no booking is necessary but it will be on a first come, first served basis. Once the camping area is full you will need to find somewhere else but it is quite a large grass area so there should not be a problem.

There will be catering and a beer tent on site from Friday evening with an under cover seating area.

Any questions concerning the event then please feel free to ask, there will also be an email address set up for queries etc.

HobbyKing looks forward to welcoming you all to Elmsett Airfield in the beautiful Suffolk countryside on Saturday 8th September.

    Love it, first time last year and apart from the 10 minutes torrential downpour of rain, it was great.

    Sorry, no, only those who are helping run the flightline and other activities will receive food tokens this year.

    Hi, do I have to register to attend if I am not flying or camping as the registration form states 'all attendees must register'.
    Many thanks.
