Alaska Radio Control Society

Announcements

The next club meeting will be August 2nd 2016, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery.

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.

Hobbycraft Pretty Plane

HobbyCraft Pretty Plane

The ARCS Hobbycraft Pretty Plane contest winner for June is Gary Miner with his Aeromaster TOO. He originaly built this plane 40 years ago but has never flown it. He pulled it out of storage, stripped the old fabric covering, recovered it using Monocote, added modern compenents and it is now finally ready for a maiden flight! Power is provided by an OS GDT10 Gas/Glow engine swinging a 13x6 Cherry Wood Trunigy Propellor. The pilot figure is a Snoopy head from an old Avon Shampoo bottle! Total weight (with fuel) is approximately 7 pounds. For his craftsmanship he takes home a $50 gift card from HobbyCraft!
