Should I practice flying in my neighborhood?

 

The short answer is NO.  Although there are some very light weight small electric powered aircraft that can be flown  in the back yard, or even in your garage, the skills necessary to safely fly your new aircraft are best learned  in open spaces where there is nothing obstructing your view.  Consider learning to fly with the help of a local RC club before you risk your new aircraft or damage to property at home.

95th holds 6th Annual Rotor Head Rally

95th holds 6th Annual Rotor Head Rally

  The 95th Squadron Model Aircraft Club hosted its 6th Annual Rotor Head Rally at their Club field in Gaston, N.C. on Saturday, Sept. 19. The event drew 15 pilots from around Virginia and North Carolina for a sunny day of helicopter and quad rotor flying. There was plenty of 3D flying that elicited many ahs and wows from pilots and spectators alike. The format consisted of open flying and included two contests – drag racing and autorotation. The drag racing event pitted two helicopters against each other and contestants raced from one end of the field to the other. After three heats, the event was won by Paul Peffly of Middlesex, N.C. The autorotation contest saw five participants attempt to auto-rotate to a pin in the center of the field. Lincoln Evrald took the trophy with the closest distance of 1 foot 10 inches from the pin. Participants and spectators alike enjoyed a hot dog lunch and the day ended with a raffle drawing for a BNF 200QX quad rotor, won by Steve Hicks of Henrico, N.C. #1: Contest Director Doug Hughes presents the Drag Race trophy to winner Paul Peffly. #2: Contest Director Doug Hughes presents the Autorotation trophy to winner Lincoln Evrald.
