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!

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.
