WATTS over Owatanna

A large number of twin engine models were at the event.
Sponsored by ElectriFly, this July 29-31 event held in Minnesota was a huge success, with 135 registered pilots! Already the largest electric event in the Midwest, the Watts event provided a great place for electric modelers to come together to fly, make friends and renew old acquaintances. Located just 45 miles south of Minneapolis,  it was a short drive for the locals but pilots came from Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois Wisconsin, Minnesota and Canada to be a part of this event.  Make plans for next year July 27-29!
