Frequently Asked Questions
Why Join a Club?
Joining a club is a great way to meet other RC enthusiasts. For the beginner, a local RC club devoted to your RC of choice is a good way to find an instructor, Our club has experts in both RC Electric and Gas airplanes and Helicoptors. We can help you gain insider information on the best places to buy RC planes/heli's and accessories in your area. If you are an experienced pilot the friendly environment and low number of members allows everyone plenty of time to fly and enjoy the entire field to themselves.
What does it cost to join this club?
Membership fees are detailed on the membership form on the About the Club page and are similar to those at other area clubs.
