I recently had a chance to work with the Local E A A Chapter 165 in which I was a past President. I set up my Stearman bipe so the scouts could see which controls on the aircraft controlled the pitch, roll & yaw.

The Model Aviators of South Arkansas hosted a swap meet on February 5th at a new location with lots more room.
The weather was still icy in central Arkansas but was nice in Eldorado. A special thanks to all of the Eldorado club members who helped put this on!!
Great News. The Albuquerque Radio Control Club is hosting a Jet fly in. They did this two years ago and had a blast. Last year was cancelled because of the virus. BOO. So, the event is back this year. Come out to Albuquerque and fly your jets or, just come and watch. It will be fun.

Treasure. Today I was at the ARCC swap meet in Albuquerque. Les Beason was the man in charge and did a great job. There was lots of treasure to be had. A bunch of sellers showed up and soon the buyer or lookers were on hand to get a deal. Les has a Balsa USA DH4 that was built by Mr. Adams. It is an outstanding plane. He tried and tried to sell it. I might end up with it, have no idea where to put it.
The weather was hot. It got hotter before we left. It is always fun to come to these events. The knowledge from some of the older old timers is priceless.
Join a local club, join the AMA and go fly something.
Got this from the Rio Rancho Radio Control Club.

July 4th, Rio Rancho RC Fliers held their annual Family Day. The club hosts this event and invites Rio Rancho RC Families, families of people living near the field and the Mayor of Rio Rancho, NM. This year we had 36 people attending the vent and were served a great BBQ of Burgers, Dogs and all the Fixins’. Greg Hull the Mayor of Rio Rancho stopped out to visit, had a Dog and some great conversations with almost everyone in attendance. Greg is a hands on Mayor who loves visiting with the electorate in the city and this was no exception. Food was provided by Rio Rancho RC, cooking by Don McClelland and Ken French ! ! Dons’ wife Ruth has been doing the shopping for Family Day since 2014 which was the starting year for this club event. The club held a raffle with quite a number of planes as prizes ! !
