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.

Sig Manufacturing
Many of us who got into the hobby in the 70's-80's started with Sig Trainers, particularly the Sig Kadet. They still have the Kadet in several different versions, but they also have accessories, balsa, Alien and Herr aircraft kits, and Seagull ARFs.

It was the Kadet Senior Sport ARF that got me back into the sport.
Still time to renew your memberships!
Neil Armstrong's Love of Model Aviation
Written by Rachelle Haughn
For Neil Armstrong, it all started with model airplanes.
As seen in the June 2019 issue of Model Aviation.
One of a dozen slide shows from the Nall (Wednesday and Thursday)
 Legacy Aviation Muscle Coupe (72 in)
Crashed by 60 inch Extreme Flight Laser again, this time it just dropped from the sky. It was squirrely from the moment of take off. My effort to land was fruitless and it belly flopped into the cornfield from about 30 feet. Since the field was freshly plowed, damage to the fuselage and the right wing was extensive, but all of the electonics, batteries, and motor looked to survive. I plan to use a new receiver and double check the servos, but, if they check out, they have a new home in the Muscle Coupe that I purchased at the Nall.

The lines of this beauty are reminiscent of the Golden Age racer, Mr. Mulligan. Rather than an all white finish, this model comes in red and blue color schemes. The plane is equipped with flaps and wiring of the wing will be enhanced with the addition of an MPX Multi-wire servo plug. EF was out of the two wire version but I went with the three wire as it was still in stock
Flight Instruction returns! Herb Dickerson and his crew are offering RC Flight Instruction (Free!) at LARKS East on weekends, weather permitting.

I only spend a half hour at the 3D Line, but what little I saw was very impressive. Video was one of 12 videos taken on Wednesday
