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.
Multiplex's Solius is a 85 inch foam (white Elapor with orange and gray accents) electric powered glider, complete with motor, a 40 Amp BEC, and is receiver ready. It has a folding prop and a 44 mm wheel for landing.
It requires a 6 channel radio and has a two piece wing to ease transportation. Built for electric power the craft weighs only 51 oz.
Since construction is not Styrofoam, only medium CA glue used with an activator is recommended.
At the October meeting we discussed the upcoming Float Fly, overnight camping and responsibilities.
A reminder: it's time for the election of club officers. Come to the meeting November 2nd for elections.
