It’s that time of year (that time when flying outdoors isn’t always that much fun), and Captain Monte has arranged for another indoor fly-in at the Thomasville Rec Center, 37 Taylor Street, Thomasville, NC. Flying is free and will be from 6:30pm to 9:30pm! All pilots are welcome. There’s no charge and electrical outlets are available for sharing/charging. Slow-flyers and small multi-copters are great in this environment. Large/fast electrics are welcome, but this is a basketball-court gymnasium. Hope to see everyone there!
There will be a membership dues increase beginning September 15, 2015. Open membership will be $75 and a Senior membership will be $65. There will be an opportunity for you to lock-in your current dues of $58 or $48 for one year or two years. Lock in the current rate until 2018 if you renew by September 14! Click Here!
The flying season is here, so if you haven’t made it out to the field it’s time to get your batteries charged and make sure your aircraft are flight-worthy! The field is available any time but Thursday evening ‘Flying ‘n’ Lying’ is always a lot of fun! Hope to see everyone out at the field soon!
Central Carolina Hobbies, across the street from the old KC Hobbies location, has finally opened and they’re grand opening is currently underway! Below is a photo of the store. Apparently the shipping strike in California has delayed delivery of some merchandise but since the strike has been settled hopefully new merchandise will be in soon! Good luck to Central Carolina Hobbies! The shops phone number is 336-434-0900
FYI, starting Monday, Feb 2, 2014 Anderson R/C will be keeping the following schedule:

I didn’t make it to eWeek at Triple Tree as I had hoped, but had a wonderful time participating in CCRC’s first ever Float Fly at Lynwood Lakes development in Greensboro!

1) Lipo batteries lose capacity when stored at full charge. Ideal charge is around 40%.
2) Storing at cool temperature will increase the life of a Lipo somewhat.
3) Be sure to let Lipos warm up to room temp. before charging or using them.
