The Frozen Finger Fly was a success, and this winter we have been experiencing higher than normal temperatures, as well as little snow. We encourage everyone to get out and use the field. So far, SPAD construction has gone great, and there are many members that say they are a blast to fly. Stay posted for details on our next meeting, which should be around February. Lastly, fly safe, and lets try to have a year with less incidents.

2009/11/06 RC Combat Update:
We have now decided on a motor and speed controller for the Saturday Night Midget! It has already been tested and it runs great, with plenty of power for this aircraft. We will use This Motor and This Speed Controller. Bulk orders may be placed as soon as possible. A note on SPAD construction: Although the instructions recommend 2mm coroplast, it is very hard to find and 4mm may be substituted. All the planning is done: Let the building begin!

2009/10/27 RC Combat Update:
We will be using the 'Saturday Night Midget' SPAD from This Website. The plans are under 'The Classics' > '.15 Sized' > 'Saturday Night Midget.' We will find an electric motor from Hobby City that will keep these airplanes affordable. If all goes to plan, we will feature RC combat in our next funfly, the 'Frozen Finger Fly.'

2009/10/15 RC Combat:
Our executive has started planning organized RC airplane combat for next year. The airplanes will likely be SPAD, with an electric motor in the .25 range to be selected. Plans for the aircraft, rules and updated information will be available soon.
