Model Aviation Expo to Feature Radio Controlled Airplanes, Helicopters, Multirotors, UAVs, and FPVs
Date:12/26/2013

Ontario, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

The premier exposition for model aviation, AMA EXPO 2014, hosted by the Academy of Model Aeronautics and presented by Go Professional Xtreme Custom Cases, will be held January 10-12 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, CA. Anyone with an interest in general or model aviation are encouraged to attend to learn more about the model flying hobby, view and purchase the latest in model aircraft technology, mingle with model flying enthusiasts, listen to presentations by aviation experts, and enjoy a full weekend of camaraderie.

This year’s Expo will include more than 200 exhibitors with hundreds of products and displays. Check out multirotors, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), recreational first-person view (FPV) tools, indoor flying demonstrations, and more! New this year is a multirotor flying demonstration area, a hands-on FPV experience with the Roswell Flight Test Crew, and real-time construction of model airplanes by the California Scale Modelers Association. Do not miss the FAA, AMA, and Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) panel discussion to learn about the most recent advancements in the industry.

Bring the kids for several youth-centered activities including a model airplane and rocket make-and-take, sponsored by Estes Rockets. Visit other displays and exhibits by NASA, EAA, Rotor F/X, the Soaring Society of America, and see a static model competition display.
