RC Aircraft Flying Club Website
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. We recently set up two flying sites on each side of the parking lot that is designated for helicopters, quadcopters and other drones.
Club members meet unofficially at Hardee's for noon lunch every Friday. If you are interested in the hobby, or just a club member that wants to visit, please join us. It's not all airplane stuff, sometimes this group tries to think of ideas to solve the worlds problems.
This winter the club holds monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month, 7 p.m. Meetings are held at being held at the Longfellow School gym. The Club has worked out an agreement with the school district, that club members can fly small indoor planes, helicopters or quadcopters at the school gym every Wednesday night this winter unless they have a vacation day. You will get an email if something changes. You're all invited to come out and see what all the fuss is about. I got hooked last year, and its something I look forward to each week. Flying is from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Pictured is Jim Johnson, posing at the Field with his Stick 60. This Stick was scratch built by Don Hungerford. This plane is made in the USA and is built and covered better than the typical ARF Sticks you can buy on the market. Jim joined the Club this summer and has been very active. He already has two Float planes and has started to learn how to fly quadcopters. The Club rents the Gym at the Longfellow every Wednesday night this winter for indoor flying.
Radio Control planes, drones, quadcopters, and helicopters.
