This week’s featured pilot is Phil with his Lazer Toyz Lazer. It took our chase pilot (Jason) about 30 seconds to figure out the speed and the maneuverability of the Lazer so be patient, the video turned out pretty good.
The MARCS annual memorial fun-fly, open house, and picnic to start our flying season is on Sunday June 2nd from 10am to 4pm. Everyone is invited including the public. There will be a raffle for a ready-to-fly Corsair model plane (photos below) and members will offer guidance and instruction to interested modelers and people who have questions about joining our club. We’ll even have instructors and a few trainer planes available so we can give new pilots a chance to try out flying!
The picnic will feature grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and soft drinks provide by the club. Admission and parking for the event is free but there will be a donation jar on-hand if you would like to help support the club. Club members will be bringing side dishes (and guests may do that as well) so we always have a lot of great food at our picnic!
At around noon we will have a ceremony to honor members who have “Flown West” and this usually includes a “missing man” formation. Otherwise it’s open flying all day. Guest pilots are required to have an AMA membership because MARCS is an AMA field. Please bring a current AMA card with you if you would like to fly.
Everyone welcome Chris to the club! He joined MARCS recently and made it out to the field for his first MARCS flight with his Freewing Stinger Blue EDF jet.
Marc and Jason were at the field this Easter Sunday for some early afternoon high jinks. Marc brought his Catalina, B-29, and Corsair.
Barry brought his new Leader 480 to the field for our first Wednesday evening flying session of the season.
In case you missed the Toledo show this year . . . we have you covered.
Jason thought his Emax Hawk 5 quad could keep up with Chris’s E-Flite Viper . . . Jason was wrong. But it still made for some good video.
Our club president Marc asked for a video of him flying his new Corsair for the first time. It’s a great looking model and we got some good shots of it in the air.
If any other club members would like a special video made of their model airplane like the one below please reach out to club VP Jason.
The smell of hot dogs cooking on an open fire brought out a good crowd for our first Sunday outing of the new flying season.
MARCS members and friends enjoyed a great night of flying at the Kent State Field House indoor event on January 11th.
