Apr 16, 2012 5 Comments by

The planes and models on display were again the stars of the show at the 58th annual Hobby show in Toledo, OH. And would you believe an RC Dragon won Best in Show?

    Gerry It would be nice to see the plane I won 2nd place with with the rest of the competitors. If you forgot it was the De Havilland Chipmunk the big yellow airplane.
