If you love scale modeling, bring your plane to RCX, show off your modeling skills, and enjoy the show! RCX with the help of the Scale Squadron of Southern California is hosting the Battle of the Builders, a static RC scale model aircraft contest at this year’s RCX RC Expo in Long Beach California. The Battle of the Builders is open to any competitor with a flying RC scale model including fixed-wing, ducted fan, EDF, turbine, helicopter, and sailplane, and it’s free to enter. All modes of power are welcome. And for those who like to modify scale ARFs, the Battle of the Builder’s has classes for you too (just remember, they need to have scale or detail improvements to their outward appearance).
1st Place: $200
2nd Place: $100
3rd Place: $50
People’s Choice: $100
