Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) – Simple Way To Know When One Affects You

Most aeromodelers in the U.S. know about Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) and understand flying an R/C model in one specifically prohibiting “Model Aircraft Operations”, can subject them to criminal prosecution. This article will NOT address what a TFR is, why they are issued, or how they impact our hobby. That has been covered well in […]

R/C Now and Then

It’s been almost 30 years since I was first been bitten by the aeromodeling bug. Every once in a while I think back to my early days and the changes that have taken place in the hobby since then. Even though gravity is still just as relevant and you still need to move sticks with […]

Visitors at the Flying field

Have you ever visited an R/C flying field as a spectator? If so, has this ever happen to you? Here’s the scenario: I’m a sole body standing in the spectator area. Just a few feet away, on the other side of the fence, there are about a dozen pilots doing exactly what we do at […]

Who’s Flying Where

I believe most R/C’ers prefer flying with other aeromodelers when possible. Being able to talk R/C and share flying stories just makes the hobby more interesting. However getting together to fly with others from your circle of R/C cohorts can be difficult, leaving most to ponder the age old question; I wonder who’s flying where and […]

Shipping an oversized R/C plane

As you can imagine the problem with selling something this big online is shipping it to the buyer. Just one wing panel, including joiner rods and such, was almost seven feet long. […]

Toledo R/C Expo 2013

Anybody with an interest in aeromodeling that has never been to the Toledo R/C Expo, or simply The Toledo Show as most call it,  is missing out. Anybody that’s been in this hobby for awhile has probably heard those words many times before. Well it’s that time of year again when a modeler will hear talk […]

The Free Flight Fiasco

Have you ever seen a free flight model in action? I have and will say it’s pretty damn impressive. The name of  this site is All R/C  flight but I must say, for a guy to build a plane and then set it up to fly proper on its own with no outside input from […]
