See I thought I read somewhere that the show will start to alternate cities and years. So this year the show is in Chicago. Next year it will be in California. Then back in Chicago and so on.

There is a hobby show in Vegas this same weekend I think too....

RCX is having a show in Chicago in June....

I've started the countdown already...between going out of town for a couple of race weekends and doing a trip to Chicago in the summer I think I'm going to have to take wifey on a Vacation someplace this winter to earn brownie points

This is what is happening, definitively:

The "Chicago show" was formerly the International Model & Hobby Expo, and has been renamed iHobbyExpo.

Hobby Visions is taking place as we speak (Oct. 8-10) in Vegas.y

RCX is held in the Spring in Los Angeles.

Next year:

iHobbyExpo will begin alternating between Los Angeles and Chicago, so next year's show will be in LA.

RCX will begin a Chicago RCX show, which will be run in addition to the regular RCX in LA.

Those are the only real industry trade shows you guys would be interested in.

The show wasn't to bad...

TC4, JRXS, RDX, Xray, ect...

I took about 80 pics of random things which I'll post tomorrow.

Tony Phalen of AE was really helping and informative regarding the TC4.

Xray is coming out with what looks like a mini truck like the miniT.

RDX had a 3.5mm chassis version.

There was another radio system like the Spektrum thing that was crystaless.

Both those systems are probably the most impressive product introduced.
