Winter Build 2020-21

The Winter Build 2020-21 rules have been posted on the website. Projects that were constructed during the 2019-20 competition will also be judged on 3 April, provided that they have not been flown yet, along with any 2020-21 new builds. This means you could be entering two different planes.

The judging of Winter Builds will be held the First Saturday in April, static judging first. Let’s try to get that started by 10:00 AM. One person’s plane(s) per table for static judging. This is possible since this is only one person is flying at a time. Masks and social distancing will still apply while out of vehicles.

Questions? Please contact KC or Duane.

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.
