Euro Heli Series news...

Our friend Ian Emery has been involved in the establishment in 2014, & growth in 2015, of the Euro Heli Series - a series of radio controlled helicopter competitions across Europe.  

The first two events have already taken place this year, in France & Belgium - & two more events follow in the autumn, the Netherlands &, just confirmed, now also in Slovenia.

Ian visited us recently & told us some of the difficulties involved in arranging these events (not least being able to afford the judges required to make it an officially recognized F3C event) so we are thrilled that he's been able to gain the support & momentum required to make a go of it!  

Ian says "I am pleased to announce that the Moonlight Cup, held in Slovenia will be added to the Euro Heli Series Calendar for 2015. It will give pilots from other parts of Europe who can't make it to any of our other events an opportunity to get involved in the Euro Heli Series and as always everyone is welcome to come along.
This years Moonlight Cup will be held over the weekend of 11-13 September 2015. I will be adding a page to the website over the coming weeks and information will be added as it is confirmed.
Thank you to everyone who came to Vitry le francois and Lendelede over the past couple of weeks and to everyone involved in organising the events. It was great to catch up and really nice to see so many F3C pilots and judges there".

We'll bring your more news from Ian & his Euro Heli Series adventures throughout the season - in the meantime we wish Ian & his fellow competitors continued fun & success - happy flying guys!
