The Northwest Model Hobby Expo, a must-attend events for hobbyists, is to be held this weekend at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds.
The expo includes demonstrations and a swap meet with remote-controlled airplanes, cars, boats and helicopters.
There will be sessions of "Battle Bots" and tank battles every two hours, with prizes.
This year's expo packs lots of extras like a boat pond for remote-controlled boats.
The Indoor Fun Fly will feature monitored open flying of hobby planes over a 50-by-50-foot caged area about 18 feet high. There is expected to be at least one buddy box system in place so newcomers can experience the sport of indoor flying.

Fees for the Fun Fly are $2 for single-day flying, $5 for weekend flying or $7 for the whole family. Registration is suggested.
