    That's Right Folks, it's that time again! The annual RDRC "Fly for Tots" in Youngsville NC is just around the corner, and we're all really excited to get things under way with the 2010 FFT event. In fact, this will be FFT's 20th anniversary! This event has come a long way in these twenty years, especially in the last five years. Who could have imagined we would be raising as much as $27,000 for charity, doing what we all love to do so much? FLYING!!!! Thanks to the generosity of so many model manufacturers, distributors, and of course MODELERS, this event has grown tremendously in both popularity and attendance. We now bring in over 200+ registered pilots, a long list of on site vendors, top rated factory pilots from across the eastern portion of the USA, the president of AMA, and much more. But more importantly, we come together for a GREAT cause: to raise money for sending less fortunate children to the Victory Junction Camp. For those of you not familiar with Victory Junction Camp, we encourage you to visit their web site at www.victoryjunction.org . This camp is simply AMAZING, and we can't think of a better place to show our support towards. This is a FLY ANYTHING event folks, and we like seeing it all on the flight line! How many events have you been to where you see a heli on one flight station, a giant scale 3D'er next to that, then a foamy, a war bird, a jet, a scale crop duster, and all of them flying at the same time? And without ANY conflicts between each other!!! Only at FFT folks! Year after year we have been amazed how all of the different style modelers make this all work. Of course this presents a GREAT show for the thousands of spectators attending the weekend event.
    So charge up those batteries, bolt on your wings, and come spend a GREAT 3 days of flying at RDRC in Youngsville NC, September 17, 18, and 19th. For more info on RDRC, the "Fly for Tots" event, and the Victory Junction Camp, visit any of these listed web sites:

    www.flyfortots.com
    www.victoryjunction.org

    See you all there!!!!

    We're working on the FlyForTots site now (www.FlyForTots.com), to get the online raffle ticket sales up and running for this year. We shipped out a lot of goodies last year, so along with raising money for a great charity, many online raffle participants won some cool R/C goodies!
