There's not a lot of flying in the immediate area around DC because of airspace restrictions.

Patuxent Aeromodelers is outside the SFRA and jet friendly

There are several of us who fly jets at RARC in the Richmond VA area. (RICHMOND AREA RADIO CONTROL CLUB - Home RARC RC model aircraft flying club)

We also occasionally go down to Ft. Pickett and fly jets there...
