The next club meeting will be October 4th 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.
TINY WHOOP INFO: Those of you interested in the "Tiny Whoop" (Blade Inductrix FPV), you can find tons of information by searching Google. There are a lot of websites with instructions, parts, upgrades, videos, etc. Tiny Whoop Google Search
Hobbycraft no longer sponsers the Pretty Plane contest due to business changes. The club will still have a monthly pretty plane contest at each meeting though, so BRING YOUR PLANE and show it to the members!
The final ARCS Hobbycraft Pretty Plane contest winner for August was David Fosbrook with his Goldwing Corvis Racer! It sports a 30cc Evolution 2-stroke gas engine, Hitec high voltage/torque servos, and 2ea 2-cell lipos. He gets 30 minute flights on a tank of fuel! The Corvis has a 72" wingspan and weighs in at 10 pounds (without fuel). For his craftsmanship, David takes home a $50 gift card from HobbyCraft!
