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.
Motion RC has expanded their line to include a few Balsa ARF's from Black Horse. This is not your usual foam model with all of the servos, etc, but a balsa and plywood model with quality covering.
A little on the expensive side, but it appears the detail is excellent and can be flown with a 35 cc gas or electric equivalent. Basic modeling skills are required.
Reviews for this model have just started coming in, but they are very positive. This is a large model, with a wingspan of 112 inches. Don't think it will fit in your Honda or Toyota. Might need a pickup with a shell for transport, even if you choose electric power.
Flight Instruction returns! Herb Dickerson and his crew are offering RC Flight Instruction (Free!) at LARKS East on weekends, weather permitting.
Built before and during WWII, this German liaison aircraft (today we call it forward air control) was also produced in other countries into the 1950's for the private market. It had excellent STOL capabilities and a very low stall speed. It excelled on rough and uneven runways.
Come out and fly with us. We have a 600 x 100 ft Bermuda grass runway and power for e-flyers. Gates open at 8am, lunch starts at noon til the food runs out. $15 pilots, $5 spectators. Additional info call Tim @ 828-388-0279 or Tom @ 854-804-0035
You need to be at least 13 to participate and you should have a fast Internet connection. It is also recommended that you have a headset with microphone (24 bucks from Amazon). The video is streamed to you with almost zero latency. Video quality is limited (don't expect 4K). My headset is due Jul 8, so stay tuned!
