The next club meeting will be March 6th, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery. Bring your latest and greatest projects in to share with all of us!
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Lee Truesdell with this beautiful Sopwith F.1 Camel! He built this from a Proctor Enterprises VK Model Kit he picked up at a swap meet!!! It has a 56" wing span, and is 36.25" long. Lee has a RimFire 60 brushless motor with ample juice coming from a 3-cell, 4,000 mAh li-po battery. Lee was able to use the battery position to achieve the correct balance. The beautiful covering job was done using Coverite. He wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies!
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. Do not attempt to 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. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
