Spring weather has been nice and you will now find several people flying at the airfield on weekend mornings. Club membership numbers seem a little bit low so far this year so dust off your plane and bring it out to the airfield and fly with us.

June meeting and other news

We decided on the dates for this year’s fun fly event event during the meeting.  We decided to make it similar to last years, with a simple and somewhat informal style. We also talked about finances, safety and a variety of general RC topics.  Bob finished building one new table and he started on a second one.  A few new models have shown up at the field this month.  Larry got a BFG glider which is huge and flies nice.  Bill brought out a new custom built poster board type model.  Robert Andrews test flew his customized 800-size, trex, heli camera ship.  I test flew my custom built inverted v-tail FPV platform (still waiting for camera parts).   Stuart and Larry have been trying out dolly style launch cradles for their large motor gliders.  The dollies allow these relatively large planes to take off from the grass without landing gear, avoiding a risky 50:50 hand toss.
