Flight Bash Mission

The first thought of Flight Bash was for an all electric flying event.  We have big plans for these events.  On the even years we are going to push Factory Sponsorships and Vendor Sponsorships and have amazing prizes for the pilots.  On odd years we will hold a traditional fun fly with racing, freestyle, and open flying and pilot prizes.

 

Flight Bash is organized yearly by Buddy RC with the help of Buddy RC's sponsored pilots and volunteers.  Our appreciation is deep for all the help we get with this event.  Without Wes Johnson, Paul Adkins, John Zoldak, and all the QRGO and Buckeye FPV assistance this event would not be possible.

 

Keep in mind this page is under construction.

 

 

 

 

2016 Flight Bash

We wanted to have airplanes and multi-rotors and everything in between.  Once we started talking about Quad Racing we hooked up with Quad Racing Group Ohio NE and asked Paul Adkins, John Zoldak, Ben See and the rest of the gang if they would be interested in coming down and running the racing they jumped on the idea.

 

On Friday evening we held the Detroit Multirotor / Thrust UAV Light the Night Challenge,   The night track was lit by LED lights provided by Thrust UAV.  Detroit Multirotor built identical quads and each pilot flew identical quads and the winner kept the custom quad built by Detroit Multirotor.  This was an exciting event for sure!  Thank you Detroit Multirotor and Thrust UAV for stepping up to pull this off.  And thanks to lighting tech John Zoldak for keeping the track lit.

 

The QRGO Group knocked it out of the park running  81 races on Friday and 16 on Saturday to finish out the finals of the Tattu Championship and the Edge Racing Challenge.

 

Winner of the Tattu Championship for 2016 was Paul "Nurk" Nurkkala.

2017 Flight Bash

The event for flight bash took on a slightly different attitude from 2016.  We opted for a fun and laid back atmosphere.  We brought in Buckeye FPV and Quad Racing Group Ohio to run two totally different courses.  This worked out great to be able to allow both groups to enjoy racing as well as the many other pilots that attended.

 

Wes Johnson and the Buckeye FPV organizers and volunteers built an awesome course in the woods.  On Friday Buckeye completed 6 rounds  with 5 races per round with a total of 30 races for the day.  On Saturday they completed  6 rounds with 7 races per round with a total of 42 races for the day.

 

The winners for the Wookie Challenge by Buckeye FPV were:

 

Friday:

Jeeyoon "Gyune" Hyun

Matthew "Sidewinder" Nowakowski

Wesley "Electric-Hertz" Johnson

 

Saturday:

Jeeyoon "Gyune" Hyun

Don "T3hDon" Honaker

Matthew "Sidewinder" Nowakowski

 

Paul Adkins and the QRGO organizers and volunteers built a fast course in the open areas.  QRGO completed  8  rounds with 5 races each for a total of 40 races on Friday.  On Saturday they ran 8 rounds with 6 races per round for 48 races.  In two days 84 races just on the one track.

 

The winners for these two days on the QRGO  track were:

 

Friday:

Jeeyoon "Gyune" Hyun

Matthew "Sidewinder" Nowakowski

Jesse "Nomad" Swinson

 

Saturday:

Jeeyoon "Gyune" Hyun

Terry "BeastMode" Arscott

Lisa "BigRedSpider" Zoldak

 

In total with the cooperation of both MultiGP chapters QRGO and Buckeye FPV we completed 70 races on Friday and 90 Races on Saturday with an amazing 160 races for the weekend!  We were extremely pleased with this event and really enjoyed the atmosphere and weekend of flying!

 

After all the racing was done, there was more!  We had some fun drag racing as well as many call out races!  As well as a few rounds of the infamous Detroit Multirotor CHOP!!!  Oh what fun!
