This is a privately hosted event, so please let Brad LaPointe know what day(s) you plan to attend. We have all the contest mechanisms in place so the field is open for a weekend of fun flying. Just the excuse to dig out those old not quite ready for prime time projects that tend to get the short shift. Bring out the rookies; we have trainers on site. No entry fee, just show up and fly your brains out!
Can Am Cup #7 (Sep 13) Combat - any event with two guys who want to fly; fast, slow, FAI, 1/2A, speed limit, etc. Carrier on Sunday, all events welcome. Racing, LA25, Clown and/or Foxberg. Cheap entry fees, cheap prizes, good food, good fun.

The Team Trials are open to all MAAC members whether or not you would plan to attend the World Championships. Profile and full-body models are eligible for competition.

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.
