The Toledo Show is North America’s largest and longest running R/C model expo, and this year it took place in Toledo, Ohio on April 10th- 12th. Air Age Media, the publisher of Model Airplane News and Electric Flight, was there for this three-day event. The power was down on Friday due to heavy storms, but the show went on!
The Toledo show showcased all types of R/C models including planes, cars, and boats. The show also included a R/C model competition, swap shop, speakers, and an auction.
