    Outstanding! Anyone who is interested in trying R/C in the Houston region has many clubs who want to get you acquianted with this wonderful hobby.

    The big question is: will prospective pilots be looking here to find this out? Only time will tell.

    Start by asking about the local forums.

    2coolfishing.com Near the bottom of the forum is an RC forum. I'm the mod there and can help.

    Hello Mike;

    How the "L" you been? Long time no see. Are you going to make the Jetero Shootout this weekend? Some 37,000 Yankee Dollars worth of prizes and awards for this one. I wonder if the NATS rates that kind of money for one event: IMAC.

    For all you beginners, old flyers or just lookers, maybe too far north to make the trip to GPB's place, check out Jetero RC Club, Inc. at www.jetero.com I will offer you the same training. Hey, My Sig Seniorita is modified with Barndoor Ailerons and flies really well. I also have a Hobbico Trainer .40 with many hours on it that is a little faster and quicker on the trigger. There are a few other guys that will also do same.

    For any one in the NW area of Houston to Liberty, etc. there is a number of good clubs. Use 'em. Ya'll come see us now!

    Hi Horrace,

    Doing fine sir. You potential r/c pilots in north Houston, the Jetero R/C Club is one of the finest facilities in the USA, and Horrace will give you a good experience.

    I am afraid I won't be at the IMAC event, Hoss. It is my hope that I will be in Birmingham, AL for the "Hilltop Shoot Out" Combat meet. Right now, though, the deep South is getting flooded and the forecast for Saturday is pretty wet. Hmmm, I might be out to Jetero afterall.....

    RE: Attention Potential New R/C Pilots In Houston! Try R/C Flying for Free

    Hi again guys. I have a proposal for us locals. and nation wide if we can pull this off. First a quick review of what we have done in the past as RCers for not only the betterment of the hobby, but a chance to do something extra and beyond for others.

    Children and the Shriners Hospital.

    When I raced cars, I have been involved with three charity races benifitting the Shriners Hospital for Children. Would yall be interested in holding some "Fly ins" for the Shriners?

    The proper paperwork, connections and so forth has been done before and shouldn't be difficult to get updated for future events. With cars locally, we even had some manufactures donate some cars to the children to the Shriners hospital and some pretty good exposure in RC Xtreem magazine.

    Anybody interested?

    Interesting concept. I will PM you. Would this involve cars only, or would aircraft be in the mix as well?
