NEAT Fair is held at the Peaceful Valley Campsite buried deep in the Catskills of New York. The flight line includes separate heli and park flyer areas, as well as six center stations for the main event. We take a look at a wide verity of electric flying as well as covering the latest in electric R/C products at the fair.
