Hobbico and Futaba have announced their participation in the upcoming MultiGP RIOT International Open, which will take place August 9th through the 13th (2017) in Muncie, Indiana. Held at the AMA National Headquarters, this five-day event will be a spectacle of flight and FPV as multi-rotor pilots and R/C enthusiasts from around the world are invited to participate in a variety of events.
At their “Charge & Chill” tent, Futaba will have re-charging stations for flight gear, refreshments for pilots and guests, and more. With eight flight zones set up over 1,000+ acres, there will be the need for a boost throughout the day, and Futaba’s “Charge & Chill” tent sounds like a great place to get juiced up.
Along with this rest stop, Futaba is also sponsoring the Freestyle course (Track 4). Not only can you get crazy with your own in-air tricks, but you can experience piloting expertise of FPV wizards such as Johnny FPV, Nick Willard, Paul Nurkkala, and more.
