We voted to discontinue use of the Riverside field. LARKS West and East are still available.
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.
Need something to put that EME 55 in? Try this beautiful SBACH342 from Aeroplus RC and Mile High RC.
