LARKS Applications
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.

I don't know about you, but I love WWII Warbirds, especially bombers and twin engine fighters. From the moment I saw video of this beauty, I couldn't wait to get one for my hanger.

Motion RC has a great review and videos of this impressive plane. Imagine the envy of your fellow pilots when you showed up with this four engine, 63 inch monster.......

Sanction #17/8. The April 1st Larks Fly In is back at Larks Main Field (1800 Ben Franklin Rd Leesville SC) exits 44 and 39 from I-20.

This is an Old Fashion Fun Fly to say goodbye to this ole field that served us for more than 35 years! There is one runway and one heli area, it's best not to fly scale jets from this runway, everything else is fine.
