The next club meeting will be February 6th, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery. Bring your latest and greatest projects in to share with the gang!
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Jeff Anderson with this beautiful Ultra Sport 1000! He built this from a Lazer Works kit in a mere three weeks!!! It has a 73" wing span, a Super Tigre 3250 engine and weighs in at 12 pounds and 6 ounces. Jeff tells us that it balanced perfectly and needed no additional weight. Another impressive item is his handcrafted, aluminum landing gear! (Oh, and like a true Alaskan, Jeff is showing off his superior balance and traction by disregarding the "Wet Floor" sign!) 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.
