The next club meeting will be May 1st, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery. Bring your latest and greatest projects in to share with all of us!
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Lee Truesdell! Lee built this CivyBoy 61 from a kit that he picked up at a swap meet. It has the original receipt from 1956 showing that the original purchase was at the base exchange for just a little over $5! It has a 61" wing span. He covered it with a combination of Ultracote and Monokote (very pretty)! Lee has a RimFire 25 brushless motor with ample juice coming from a 3-cell, 1,100 mAh li-po battery. 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.
