President Dan Woods maintains our Clubs page on Facebook. He adds content to it each week, please check out the link above, think about joining Facebook, it's kind of fun.
Our RC Airfield is located just north of Great Falls on Highway US 87; Turn left at mile marker 8 on Black Horse Lake Road and it is located about a half a mile from the highway. The paved runway is 560 feet long by 50 feet wide.
The club holds monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month, 7 p.m. Our next meeting will be held at the Longfellow Elementary School, 1100 6th Avenue South, on February 1. Make sure you check your email before taking off to a club meeting, just in case plans have changed.
Pictured above Chad Pollington and his son both flying at the Longfellow School Gym. About 8 - 9 guys have been showing up every Wednesday night to enjoy some wintertime stick time.
Your webmaster has been flying a Syma X5C quad for four weeks now. He started with 3 batteries, he now has seven. With every flight, experience is gained and flying is really fun. The controls are more like a helicopters controls verses a fixed wing plane. The left had is almost more important than the right hand. It takes some time to get the coordination getting the two sticks to work together. There's still time for you guys to check out Wednesday night flying. I'd think it might last until maybe April or May, when it finally gets nice enough to fly outside. A few guys have small foamy inside planes, and they really do well, can't you imagine flying with no wind. Flying is from 6 PM to 9 PM and there has been a $3 per person charge to use the gym.
