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.
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.

A long time ago in a place far away – in Scamander
In September 2013, a bunch of model flyer enthusiasts met on a make-shift flying field in Scamander. Shortly afterwards, the East Coast RC Flyers club was born.
Initially, the club was jokingly known as the Bixler Club. But, when the membership and the model sizes grew, an alternative site had to be found. It was an excellent find. For almost four years, the club’s home is at Reid’s Rd, St Helens.
Members and visitors are encouraged to visit our sponsors when next looking for applicable goods or services. Our sponsors generously donate to the club and their support is greatly appreciated. Please visit our sponsors page here.
Special thanks to Alvin Reid, the land owner, for providing the excellent flying field and club house.
