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.

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.

2019 LARKS Spring Float Fly Video
Freewing F-22 Raptor 90 mm EDF
James' latest find is the Freewing Raptor from Motion RC. Got to see it fly for the first time this April. It is a beautiful jet and looks great in the air. I was surprised at how stable it flew, yet when he poured it on, it booked!

Landed much easier than the F-16, which is a plus!

I think James must be one of Motion RC's best customers, because he's always got something new at the field. Want to see one up close and personal? They will have a presence at Joe Nall this year.
Flight Instruction returns! Herb Dickerson and his crew are offering RC Flight Instruction (Free!) at LARKS East on weekends, weather permitting.
