2016 Review
by Bob Violett

  As the Daytona 500 in February is the "Kick-off" of the NASCAR season, so is Florida Jets to R/C Jet modeling. There were 120 registered pilots in this truly international event. It was an opportunity for all to share our common interest in jet powered models. The photo gallery below will be expanded as we receive more material.
