RC flying isn’t limited to the “standard” motorized aeroplane. A wide variety of models and styles are available: trainers, gliders, aerobatic pattern models, 3D, pylon racers, jets, helicopters. Find out more about the basics of radio-controlled flying here.
Our main flying field is near St Helens – see Flying Field for a location map.
The rise of the Asian economy has dramatically lowered the prices of model aircraft, electronics, and mechanical parts. Not too long ago, we had to spend a small fortune on our hobby, which deterred many potential newcomers. Today, around $300 can buy you a good trainer and all the necessary equipment.

Thank you Anthony Tolley for lending us the roller to prepare our grass runway. This makes our take-offs and landings so much smoother.
A very big “Thank You” to Jim for donating a ride-on mower to the club. The mower made it all the way from Victoria to St Helens on Alan’s trailer and via the ferry. If any club member wants to say thank you, here is the email address: email@example.com
