The Recreational UAS Safety Test
If you haven't done this yet you need to complete ASAP.
The FAA now requires all recreational flyers to pass The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). The FAA defines a "Recreational Flyer" as a person operating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) weighing less than fifty-five pounds exclusively for recreational purposes. This includes airplanes and helicopters as well as multi-rotors. If it flies and we control it remotely, the rule applies. Although the test is really directed at multi-rotors, the rule applies to ALL UAS.
For complete details, see the KARCS Recreational UAS Safety Test page.
Field Gate Lock
The gate lock is being damaged due to forcing, either open or closing.
To Close the lock, (1) ensure the dial is set to the numbers of the combination, (2) firmly insert the shackle into the lock case, and (3) spin the dial at least once to a random number.
If you can’t spin the dial to open the lock, push up lightly on the bar holding the lock. This will take the pressure off the lock shackle.
Never force this kind of padlock!
Membership renewals for 2022 will be available soon. A completed and signed membership form is required from each renewing member. Check the Membership Page for updates.
Please report your monthly hours at the field for you and your guests to Paul Fleming.
Donations to the Kitsap Aircraft Radio Control Society are gratefully accepted. See the Donations page for instructions on how to contribute.
There will be a new category within the Winter Build.
The Crashed and Salvaged category is being introduced to inspire pilots to reclaim their aircraft rather than toss it. As has been commented, there can be more of a challenge in rebuilding a crashed/smashed aircraft than building from new. The reason being is many times there aren’t any plans in the rebuild because it may be an aircraft that you purchased from a different person.
Questions & entry applications should be sent to:
For rules & more information, see the Build Challenge page.
