JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. The field is closed. Do not go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. In the meantime, do not go out there. Base Ops and base security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is David Fosbrook with his 'Bee-Ductrix'! He built this from components. The flight controller is the BeeBrain v.1. He also has hopped up motors, and an fpv camera/video transmitter. David says he gets about 3-1/2 minutes of serious flight time with a single cell battery. David wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies!
