Welcome to Play Concepts

The Float & Field Lake Forsyth fly-in is an annual event for model fliers held at


Lake Forsyth.

27/28 August 2016

sponsored by Play Concepts

The site includes four flight lines - the lake, the main land strip, a

helicopter line and a 3-D / park flier strip.
The event is one of the largest in the country and attracts 70-80 pilots and a wide
range of models from quad copters to jets.

Run by the Christchurch Radio Fliers
Club, who gain permission from the City Council and CAA to fly at this reserve, the
aim is to encourage model flying and to provide opportunities for people to view a
wide range of different types of Radio Controlled flying models.


There are prizes, raffles, food stalls,

and a shop operated by our principal sponsor, Play Concepts during the weekend.


Last year a group of enthusiasts ran a rotorcross event for drones / racing quads
and this will run again this year on Friday 26th before the main event begins.

The club requires that fliers are members of MFNZ (Model Flying NZ) and have a

current wings badge. This is for insurance and health and safety reasons.
