SEFF is one of the largest Electric only flight festival in the world and it is held every year in Americus, GA. This year the event had about 230+ registered pilots and beautiful weather the entire event!
Our new US distributor Mikado USA decided to go to the event and promote the Scorpion line of Airplane Motors and Speed Controllers to the Airplane Crowd at this all Electric RC Flying event!
The “Main Attraction” from the Team Pilots was their new 100cc Equivalent Electric Giant Scale Airplanes.
Santiago Perez had his 105” EF Slick 540 there using the SII-6530-180kv Motor, Tribunus 130ESC’s and just 12s 5000 Batteries.

Santiago and Kyle were also asked to perform Noon Demos for the big crowd on the main days. Kyle flew his Electric Viking and then Kyle and Santiago flew their Tandem Airplane/ Heli Show on Friday and Saturday of the Event. This show was a big attraction to the crowd and they seemed to love it! Check out the videos here!
