A Message from the President

Everyone,

Sadly, due to the President/Governor extending the ‘Stay at Home’ order until 4 May, we will be cancelling our Competition scheduled for this Saturday, 4 April, as well as the Club meeting on 14 April.

I do hope that everyone is healthy and safe, and not going too ‘stir crazy’. This gives us an outstanding opportunity to work on our ‘Winter Build’ program, our new airplanes, and become familiar with our new toys (new TX, RX, FPV, etc.) before we venture out to the field again.

I do look forward to seeing everyone at the field again, once it is open.
Take care, KC

Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
