Highlights from the 2016 AMA Expo.

Each January, modelers along the West Coast travel to Ontario, California, to participate in one of AMA’s primary celebrations of the hobby of model aviation—the AMA Expo.

This year was no different. Nearly 6,000 attendees and more than 100 exhibitors gathered in the Ontario Convention Center on January 8-10, 2016, to ogle some of the newest products, reminisce over the last year’s events, and meet other hobbyists from across the country.

For those who weren’t able to attend this year’s AMA Expo, Model Aviation had the privilege of speaking with some of the vendors present at this year’s show about their latest modeling wares. Tune in to the videos below, and find out what each of these companies brought to exhibit at AMA’s annual trade show.

Guest Speaker Series

One of our favorite parts of AMA Expo is our series of featured speakers. This year’s lineup was impressive, to say the least, and the presenters shared some fascinating stories. Visit to listen to AMA Air’s one-on-one interviews with a few of these extraordinary guests, as well as interviews with AMA President Bob Brown and District Vice President Eric Williams.
