Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane

Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane

This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Bob Stephens! This awesome Sopwith Triplane is made of 1mm Depron with graphics printed on both sides. Bob bought this kit from Microaces because of the great details incorporated into this small, scale aircraft! It has a dummy, rotating, Clerget 9-cylinder radial engine and even has a scale, propeller driven fuel pump! The model weighs in at 52 grams and is powered by a 1-cell 150mah li-poly battery. Controls are via a standard 3-channel operation (throttle, rudder, elevator). The kit also comes with a great 3-view picture printed on stiff board stock. A great plane for the upcoming indoor scale contest! Bob took home a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies for bringing in and sharing this cool model with the club!

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.
