NIFF 2016 Not-Normal Indoor Fly-In


New member
Hi everyone, this is Jason Wheeler from the Black Hawk RC Pilots. We are a club from Cedar Falls, Iowa. In the past, we have hosted the E/xpo in the Uni-Dome. This was such a great event for us, we were sad to see it end. Great news, this year we have teamed up with the Newton Sky Kings to host NIFF(Not-Normal Indoor Fun-Fly) at the Jacobson Center on the Iowa State Fair Grounds. We would love to see the Flite Test Community come out and support this event! This will be our inaugural year for this event, but those who have been to the E/xpo know the dedication and effort we will put into this event. Below is an open letter from our Contest Director Stan Sweet with more details... Please go to to register, and to check out all of the details. You can also check us out on Facebook at .

We hope to see you there!

Black Hawk RC Pilots/NIFF indoor fly-in January 7-8th

Thank you for attending the BHRCP E/xpo in the UNI-Dome. We have joined up with a group of Des Moines area flyers to host an indoor fly-in at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines. Please check it out for details and online registration. It is an exciting new venue and we have plenty of space for circuit, 3D, Heli/Quadcopter and micro FPV racing. West Michigan Park Flyers and Mid-American Multi-Rotor will be there. Hobby Haven (Des Moines) and HobbyTown (Waterloo) are donating prizes.

We need your attendance to kick start this new flying tradition. Please save the date and attend.

Thank you,

Stan Sweet

NIFF (Not-Normal Indoor Fun Fly) Des Moines, IA started as a group of dedicated flyers which were able to rent a smaller building on the fairgrounds for indoor winter flying. This has been going on for several years. This year they were able to rent the Jacobson Center and have reached out to the BHRCP to partner up on an event to share their good fortune with other fliers. A special thanks goes out to Joe Kunkel for his effort and vision.

How it differs from the E/xpo in the UNI-Dome event:

We provide tables and chairs! (You setup and tear down).

Plenty of power (20A for every four tables).

Unloading is less than 30 feet from the door, parking just across the street!

Camping hookups available.

We are not chased out of the facility Saturday night!

Concession stand is open.

Lots of restrooms.

Easy drive from I80 and I35.
