The next club meeting will be August 1st, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery. Bring your latest and greatest projects in to share with the gang!
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Lee Truesdell with his SE-5A! Lee built this from a Dynaflite kit he bought at a recent swap meet. For power he has installed an OS 90 4-stroke with a laminated Xoar prop (that should sound sweet cruising in the air). If you look close, you can see a lot of Lee's own custom built touches for more realism and scale appearance. He wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies!
JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
