We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
LARKS Mission Statement
To promote model aircraft building and flying as a family oriented hobby, to freely and openly share what we have collectively learned and experienced, and to provide an enjoyable, friendly and safe environment for our fellow hobbyists and guests.
As I was positioning my Phantom 4 for a shot of the farm machinery at the "Old" LARKS West field, I clipped the leaves behind the aircraft and it tumbled to the tall grass (about a foot tall).I was flying about 900 feet from the runway at ~6 feet high, so I had to do a little walking to retrieve it. Once I was within Bluetooth range, I could hear the beeping and found it safe and sound. Without the Tile, I might still be looking.......
Next month, I'll be reviewing other methods to find "lost" aircraft.
Henry Ford and 19 others (including his son Edsel) invested in the Stout Metal Airplane Company, turning their efforts to the aviation industry. Using some of the innovations of Ford's assembly line systems, they set out to build the "safest airliner around" .
E-flite has a new float plane, the Timber. It includes floats with dual steerable water rudders and tundra wheels. Navigation lights, wing tip strobes (daylight bright), flaps and even leading edge slats are also included.
Requires a 6 channel (minimum) radio to activate the SAFE technology and a 3 cell Li-Po with an EC3 connector.
