AMA News
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.

Government Relations (October 3, 2018)
This 80 mm twin 12 blade EDF is an engineering marvel, and though it still hasn't taken off the runway, it is an impressive piece of work.

We got to view the "guts" and wiring. Wow, this is possibly the most complicated model ever to grace our fields. It has a rigid aluminum wing box assembly with pre-installed servoless actuators to work the swept wing. Motion RC says the plane will fly at 38 mph with the wings extended to over 100 mph with the wings swept back.

Neoteck Anemometer
Bought one from Amazon this week (click caption above for link).

This is the second anemometer (say that fast three times...).This version is a much improved device. It uses a 3 V button cell for power and will tell you wind velocity and temperature on a small LCD screen. It has plenty of uses other than checking the wind at the field.

Its easy to use and comes in a protective case and lanyard.

Price $16.95 with battery included.

HeadsUp Hobby
My favorite place to find a battery. Fast delivery and long battery life are a plus! Anywhere from a 1 cell to 6 cell with a variety of connectors.
Mostly XT-60 and 90 connectors, but the cost is within my budget and performance has been more than acceptable. Great search function!
Motion RC
Admiral batteries with a variety of connectors. Walt recommends them for his smaller electric RC Extreme Flight plane and Avanti EDF Jet.
Walt's got a new toy!!!
Can't wait for his first flight! Beautiful, ain't it?
Maiden flight will be at the Trenton field, 24 Girlscout Road, Trenton, SC in the near future.
