I have never been to this event. I'm interested in getting a 450 size heli and I was wondering if there are any deals to be had on the show. Kits, radios, parts...Thanks.

The value of the show to RC model hobbyists has been discussed at length here

Apparently, Hobby Hobby will be there, so maybe you might get lucky with a 450 deal.

If you have never been before, then you wont know if its worth it to you until you go to at least one and find out for yourself.
