After a couple of years of lockdowns, it was nice finally getting out to have some fun with fellow radio control enthusiasts. The 2022 edition of Radio Control Expo, better known as RCX, brought a weekend of nonstop action and excitement to the Fairplex in Pomona, California, March 26 and 27.
The event brought together thousands of spectators and RC enthusiasts for a full weekend of fun that showcased the best in new products, Try-Me driving, product discounts and giveaways, full-size show cars, drag racing, planes, helicopters, FPV drones, rock crawlers and more.
Plenty of RC companies were present to show off their latest releases and giving hands-on demos of their most popular vehicles and gear. Aside from all the RC action going on, RCX attendees were also able to experience the California Power Sports and Outdoor Adventure Expos, also situated at the Fairplex that weekend.
Those who attended the all-encompassing show got to sit in 1:1-scale off-road vehicles, examine dedicated camping trailers, check out the latest side-by-sides, and were even treated to an RC air show just outside the event’s two packed halls. If that wasn’t enough, showgoers were also treated to a movie and TV show vehicle display that included Herbie the Love Bug, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, a Jurassic Park Explorer and more.
