There may be a non-serious balloon bust and speed-limit combat competition. For combat, likely a four round total points format with no deduction for midairs, line tangles, and other assorted follies. We will all start with two "free" models and after that it will cost you points for more models. Fly nicely and you will have a much better chance of winning. Just flying around might be better than win at all costs. The first two rounds will be randomly selected. The third round will be by pilots choice. The fourth and last round will be by matching scores: first and second, third and fourth etc. If two pilots have flown already the next closest pilots will fly. This format is up for review and can be tweaked so your input is welcome. The focus is on a more fun event rather than a contest setting. No entry fee is anticipated and prizes will reflect this. The big green "screw up" trophy may well be resurrected for this. You have been warned!
We are actively recruiting new control-line model airplane pilots.

What is Control-Line Flying
The pilot stands in the middle of a circle and operates the airplane by way of two or three "control lines" connected between the pilot and the plane.

Come on out and join us!
All are welcome.
We meet October through April on the 2nd Wednesday evening of each month at 7:30 PM,
Centennial Park Arena,
for informative sessions on control-line model airplanes.
In good weather (spring, summer, fall), we generally fly at the
Centennial Park circles
near the go-carts on Sunday morning.
Keep an eye on our "Upcoming Events" list and come on out!
