The 3nd Annual RCHN Fun Fly
September 17-20, 2015
It’s that time of the year again…fun fly season is upon us and we’re gearing up for the Third Annual RC Heli Nation Fun Fly! While we really enjoyed our two previous years in the Spokane/Deer Park area of Washington, we’ve found a brand new field just south of Portland OR and we’re planning on making this one our home for the foreseeable future, so get it on your calendar and make sure you’re ready to have a blast because it’s going to be unlike any fun fly you’ve ever been to!
Where: Ediger Farms, 21001 SE Wallace Rd, Dayton OR, 97114 (about 45-60 minutes South of Portland and just outside Salem and McMinnville)
When: Thursday September 17th until Sunday September 20th, 2015
Who: The RCHN Crew (Dan, Nick, Justin, and Jessie) and you!
What: Four days of awesome flying on a 2000-foot flight line in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, construction light night flying on Friday and Saturday nights, competitions, raffles, giveaways, and a live RCHN podcast on Saturday night!
Over the past couple of years, the RCHN competitions have become extremely popular and draw huge crowds of people who want to compete or just hang out to be a part of the fun! We pride ourselves on being able to drive huge attendance to our competitions and not only offer the winners some amazing prizes, but also provide all involved with a memorable experience that you’re not going to get anywhere else!
This year’s competitions will include:
The Bottle Knock
The 60-Second Hover
The RCHN Amateur Speed Cup
The Target-Bag Award
If you’re interested in any of these or have an idea for other competitions that might be fun, then please email Jessie Salmonson at to get your name on the list now or give us your idea! Remember that every competition will have a prize for the winner, so don’t be shy! Click here to email Jessie
Also, be sure to check out the Pacific Northwest’s first 3D flight competition for the everyday pilot… Shawn Hempel’s Pacific Northwest 3D Trials! One full day of good, clean competition with prize money up for grabs! The 3D Trials will be held during RCHN3 on one side of the flightline on September 18 starting at 9AM, so check out the website below and be sure to register on RCFlightDeck.com!
Of course, none of this would be possible without the help of our fun fly sponsors, so please go visit their websites and check out the awesome products that they offer or stop by their tents at the fun fly in June!
If you’re bringing the family along, coming from afar, or just don’t feel like camping out with us, then check the links below for a list of local hotels, which are all within 20 minutes of the field:
