Imagine enormous jet-powered model aircraft (which cost $30,000) doing low fly-bys at close to 200mph.  Imagine enormous aerobatic aircraft (12 foot wingspan) that are so nimble, they hover, hanging from their propeller a few feet off the ground, billowing smoke. Imagine full-scale (full-size & piloted) aircraft doing fly-bys and helis landing at the field.

Now imagine thousands attending the 2018 Model Aviation Airshow with six-rotor camera drones filming the entire event!

For the TWELFTH straight year the St. Louis Radio Control Flying Association, or SLRCFA.com, is hosting the annual FLY-IN. The SLRCFA.com facilities (just off highway 44 & 109 in Eureka, MO) are known as among the best in the country. Radio Control pilots from around the U.S. visit St. Louis each year to participate in the Fly-in. Demonstration flights occur every top and bottom of the hour, with everything from model helicopters to zany flying lawnmowers and aircraft that look like Captain America™. Exciting, nail-biting 3D flying, a form of model aerobatic flying where 12-foot, $10,000 airplanes hover and tumble a few feet off the ground, will be on display throughout the event.

  • Coffee & Donuts each morning
  • Lunch Saturday and Sunday
