Abilene Remote Control Society Hosts ‘Chopper Madness’ at Seabee Park This Saturday, October 20th [VIDEO]
The Abilene Remote Control Society will be holding their annual helicopter event this weekend. This looks like a very fun event especially if you have small children. The night flying with lights looks especially interesting. I think I may go check this out for myself.
There will be fliers from all over the Big Country and even the metroplex. There will be skilled fliers there that, if winds permit, will be flying their mini-helicopters inverted just inches off the ground. The night flying helicopters have LED lights affixed to the them which will make it look somewhat like we’ve been invaded by UFO’s!
Here are the details of the weekends events.
