Westport NY RC Fly-in

I attended the giant scale RC event in Westport NY held around July 4th weekend each year. The event draws a crowd of giant scale RC pilots from all over New England. I went every year until they stopped holding the events a number of years ago. Recently, they have re-kindled the event and are building their attendance each year.

It is by far the best flying field in New England that I have visited, and I’ve visited many. The runway is over 2,000′ long, nice and wide, surrounded by wide open fields, very well maintained, smooth, and covered with a carpet of grass. It doesn’t get much better.

This setup with a van and trailer works well for a RC flying event.
