We snapped a few more runway and field photos today, even with the low clouds, just to keep the updates showing the field improvements.
You can find all the photos at the club’s Google Photo Album here.
Below is an example of one of the new pictures.
This is a gentle reminder to club members that from noon to 2pm on Saturday, May 27th, the main runway will be in use and the field is closed due to use by a visiting drone racing league. These are large FPV multi rotor aircraft which are much easier for spectators to see and keep up with the action as opposed to the very small ones.
The racing group will host a BBQ for everyone at the field. Let’s welcome them and give them the space they need for what should be an interesting event. Our secretary Alex will be overseeing the activities and be the club’s point person.
You can learn more about the event on the Google Calendar entry or at the event website here.
These folks were nice enough to mow the field and clean up the areas they are using, so please drop by and say hi, and watch the races if you are in the area.
Come out and see this new form of racing.
This is interesting news. We’ll have to see what the loss in court does to the previously mandatory rule to register all model aircraft and UAVs
Federal Appeals Court: The FAA's Registration Rule Violates Section 336
It was mentioned at the club meeting this week that assistance was needed in building and positioning startup benches at the field. Since not everyone does “the Facebook” thing, here are the plans that were proposed to be used for these new benches.
