Event coverage

The Toledo Show: R/C Model Expo is likely the largest and longest-running RC model expo in North America. With more than 150 exhibitors spread across the 75,000-square-foot SeaGate Convention Centre in Toledo, Ohio, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy.

Join us as we take you around the show floor to see some of the highlights, the great people, and the fantastic products that make this the “granddaddy” of all aeromodeling shows!

Great article, everything I need to know except WHEN IS THE SHOW!

Hi Dean! The next Toledo Show: R/C Model Expo will be held April 6-8, 2018. You can find more information about it at

Too bad we're a month past the show this year... Dean Wilson, Pretty sure it's always the weekend before Tax Day (4/15) for future reference. It's definitely worth the trip!

The Toledo show always begins on the first Friday in April unless it is in conflict with Easter. We have show dates confirmed out to 2050, that will be our 100th show. Go to for future dates.

Were there no sailplanes at Toledo?

Just wanted to say that I have always wanted to go to the Weak Signals show since I got interested in R/C back in the 1970's Well I finally got to attend this year and enjoyed every minute spent there.
I live on the west coast so it was a long trip.
I got to visit with People like Dave Brown. Also got to talk to Sig Models people.
It was a great show and I hope to go again in the future.
