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've always been partial to scale looking planes. Extreme Flight changed the look of the Laser 200 a bit and call this the Laser-EXP. This one's special because of the helpful building videos on the site. It's affordable ($179) and you can get the recommended power options from the same site.
Dave finally decided to build this kit. In this three part series, he goes from the build to the first flight.
The Frontiers of Flight Museum at the Dallas Love Field also has some great info on this plane flown by the great Leo Loudenslager and how it unseated the venerable Pitts Special in aerobatic competition. They have one on display in the museum.
You might find him at LARKS West on Sundays before noon. Walt is another expert pilot and puts on quite a show!.

The 20th Annual Float Fly was a great time! Over 20 participants flew in the best flying weather on the Lake we've seen in the last 10 years. We saw some great flying, had tasty barbeque, and had a raffle with terrific prizes. Click the link above for a photo tour of the event.
