CCRC Float Flyin’ ‘n’ Lyin’

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!

Indoor Flying! Friday In March!

Captain Monty Mendenhall shared the following information.

Dear RC Flying Friends,

It is official now. We will have the use of the Thomasville Central Recreation Center Gym (204 East main St., Thomasville, NC) every Friday morning from 0900 until 1130 during the months of October through March. We will be permitted to use the playing field behind the gym on the last three Sundays of every month and also at any other time when the field is not in use for some other purpose. We may only fly electric RC models though. It is not a requirement, but particularly as we get started, I will be grateful if you do not fly electric RCs that have a lot of prop noise., i.e. Strykers, etc. After we are well established, this will probably change.

Next Friday, March 7, there will be an Air Race in the Gym. There will be three classes of racers, Mini-Vapors, Night Vapors and Unlimited. Two pylons will designate the course. Each race will last for three minutes and each pilot will be on his honor to count his laps properly. Most laps in three minutes wins. No charge to race and no prizes, just fun. There will be a break of about thirty minutes between races for open flying.

At 1300 tomorrow, Sunday March 2, I will be flying at the playing field behind the gym. Why not join me there for an afternoon of fun flying with electric RCs. Electric power will be available to recharge your batteries.
