Default Richardson TX RC Club Heli Fun May 20th

The Richardson RC Club will hold its annual Helicopter Fun Fly on Sunday May 20th from 9am until Night Flying is done. This is a laid back day of flying with your buddies, so bring all of your rotary wing toys with you. Landing fee is $20 that includes lunch. We will have a couple of fun events to challenge your flying skills and competitive natures.

The club has made major investments in improvements that includes a completely new infield area with new starting tables, easy access pilot stations and more space to setup. we hope that you come out and join us on May 20th. We are east of Allen TX in the Dallas Ft Worth area. The map is on the back of the flier, and you can check out the web site at rrcc.org for more information.

Hey, a time extension! As I recall, last year we lost the field in the late afternoon.

I should be able to make it.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

Great job on the weather too. I'm glad it wasn't any warmer, but the clear skies and cool breezes were welcome. I'll second Rusty's comment on the field; the new additions in the pit area were very nice.

Thanks for the great compliments, and the Richardson RC Club extends our gratitude for everybody who came out and enjoyed a wonderful day of rotary wing mayhem! Philip took some great pictures and video that I hope you all get a chance to enjoy. Wilson Miller was truly awesome with his SAB Goblin, so don't miss the video.

I met a lot of great people on Sunday, and I got a real kick out of John Johnson and Pinion. I don't know how folks can fly with a Pinion in their ear giving a running commentary, but I was LMAO with Pinion's "coaching".

Thanks to our sponsors:
  • Mike's Hobbies - Carrolton
  • Aero Hobbies - Lewisville
  • RC Zone - Frisco
Al Cannan of RC Zone in Frisco is a new club member and donated the grand prize, won by Mike Grosso. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from our sponsors!


I also want to thank everybody who gave me feedback and suggestions on how to better set up the field and run the event, because as a new heli pilot, I have a lot to learn, and you guys were very helpful. We will probably go to Saturday next year, and have some great ideas to work on.


See you next year!
Ed
