Default Control Line in Kansas City

I belong to a rc club KCRC that a few people have been coming out and flying c/l on our helicopter pad. We decided to have a control line fly-in and the response has been over whelming. People are digging out old control liners, buying new ones (mainly ARFs), we are even having a program at one of our club meetings on control line. The date planned for this is June 6th. Anyone in the area that is interested, hope you can come out.

Hey! This is Bob Furr from Omaha. We have a small control line club up here that is alive and well with two flying sites in city parks nearby. We have a myspace page that is most easily found by typing "orbiting eagles" into a google search (use the quotes). Events this year include a learn to fly/funfly at Fremont Days in July another at the Strategic Air and Space Museum about 25 miles west of Omaha on I-80 in August and a funfly/contest in October. Many of our club members fly all kinds of models. Anyway add icerinkdad-at-aol-dot-com to your mail list and send me an email to that address and I will keep you posted on events in Omaha.
Bob

Duane -

Please keep us up to date on this - a couple of years ago, we came down (From Des Moines, IA) to a small control line contest in KC and I'm sure some of us will make the trip again. If you have a flyer or announcement, please add me to your mailing list - mikeainia 'at' iowatelecom.net I'll pass the word up here.

Do you know if the Minor brothers are flying at your site? They fly combat and we would like to make contact with them to let them know about our contests here in Iowa.

Thanks
Mike A.

Make sure and tell Melvin at MBS models in Topeka about it so you can get it in the Topclass news. Topeka has the most active CL group in our immeadiate area. Then you'd have to go to Wichita, Tulsa, Omaha or St. Louis for the next most active. We've got a grass circle at the Knights field but it's maintained by the CL guys that use it and I don't know how active they will be this year. I'd fly, but I haven't had a chance to build much let alone fly. Barely getting any RC SPAD flying done. Too many projects about done or ready to cover and they've been that way for about 4 years.

I do get to work alot, it just doesn't look like it from my bank account.

Sure thing Andy, I'll make sure and forward your email to Bob Furr who has the low down on everything in Omaha and pretty much everywhere else. He's on this board to. Anyways, that's where my St Louis and Omaha info comes from.

Omaha will have a stunt contest this fall the first or second weekend in October. Right now we have nothing planned for other events. We also fly at least once a year at the Strategic Air and Space Museum (think USAF Museum west... with a strong leaning towards former SAC airplanes) and at Fremont Days in Fremont NE abou 25 miles NW of Omaha... if any of that sounds interesing drop me a message at [email protected] and I will get you more info.

Hey guys Glad to hear control line interest is picking up in midwest. The St Louis annual speed contest is May 15 (practice) May16 and 17. Buder Park. Watch the AMA contest calender for details. I have some videos of control line events at Buder Park on YouTube. Go to youtube and search calmat2.
Keep going around in circles. Lou

I found this on the clubs web site on how to get to the field

General Field Information
Our R/C flying field is East of 291 Highway in Fleming Park (Lake Jacomo). Take Woods Chapel Road East from 291 Highway, turn right onto Rennau Drive, then left into the flying Field parking lot. The field opens at 9:00am daily

Gee Duane,
Look what you have started! When a couple of us dusted off the old Noblers and the Ringmasters last year,...well, who'da guessed?
Looks like we might have more interest in this than our pylon or the pattern or the warbird events.

KCRC is planning on setting up 4 or 5 "circles" down the lenght of our 500' grass runway and using the parallel asphalt runway for our take off areas. Obviously, the field will be closed to RC flying that day.

Duane, I'm not sure if you had anything in mind concerning noise reduction, but I would like to remind everyone that Charlie Reed field is an RC field in a county park and it does have a noise limit and a muffler requirement for RC airplanes. We do have some near by residents and we want to be good neighbors. That being said, I don't really know if the muffler requirement includes control line. Personally, I don't have mufflers on my .15s but I do have mufflers on my .35s and .40s. So, we would appreciate it if you possibly can, please fly with a muffler.

Thanks,
