Flying

Aeromodellers, Multirotor Pilots and FPV Racers
can all get involved at MA5

Besides the main demo field, we will have the permanent track as well as an indoor micro arena.
Please note, due to the weather-sensitive nature of the flying events, the schedule may be flexible.

Demo Slots

We will have plenty of R/C demo slots and limited FPV demo slots throughout the event. If you are interested in taking part in any of these, please get in touch.
