Our dues are extremely painless and go towards maintaining a top notch flying facility as you can see from our website. For a whopping $48 per year you get the chance to fly at one of the best RC facilities in the area. We offer flight training on Wed nights for both Planes and Helicopters. We also do heli training by appointment on any day of the week which includes buddy boxing for hovering, basic flight and mild 3d. Both inspectors have either been or are sponsored by heli manufactures and have a combined 30 years of experience in RC heli's. We dont claim to be the best, but we certainly know what we are doing and we love to have fun know matter what we are flying. Stop by and see us anytime.

Nice digs Mckrackin. My house isn't as nice, but I too have a billion acres of flying heaven out back. It's great most of the time, but I have to say, it is nice having a club to go to that is ten minutes away. We had a club fly today, and it was great. I would BS with the guys until a lull in plane flying, then I would go out and fly the helicopter. Being the only helicopter guy in the club, and being able to actually fly the thing is a novelty to them. When I joined, they pointed me to the helicopter area and I told them I needed way more room than that, so they just let me do my thing. Since I average about 9-10 minutes on my 50, that is fine for them. They'll get three or four planes up at a time, and by the time the next lull comes, I am ready to go again. It's really relaxed and casual there. I was talking with one guy about autogyros, and I think I'll build one out of all the extra crap I have, just as a novelty.

So yes, having your own field is awesome, but once in awhile you have to be able to bs with like minded individuals once in awhile...

Wasn't this thread about how somebody wanted to fly Brian's helicopter? What happened here? mckrackin did you get loaded tonight? Ya seem awful hostile all of a sudden

On a more serious note.. Yeah, I like the club atmosphere, but you gotta find the right group of guys. Where I live there's a few clubs around. The one I go to most has a great group. Some of the others are filled with asshats, but it goes with the territory.

If you just can't get along with the guys there - and it certainly sounds like you can't, then don't go. Half the fun of belonging to a club is BSing with the guys, if you can't do that, and you have lots of land, then don't waste your time.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

My like minded people have nothing to do with RC.
I am still rooted in the real world.I have a hobby.I'm good at it.
It is so meaningless it's rediculous.Laughable even.

I have a toy I play with.Nothing to brag about.
I brag on my kids,family and friends.
I brag about my trucks.My ATV's.My boat.

I have fun with my helis but they don't come close to being something to brag about.

I play with them and try to make them better but they are just a hobby.Nothing to be taken seriously.

No offense.Seriously.It'sjust a distraction for me.

I don't think most of us really take them that seriously. Reading on this forum probably isn't the best gauge of that though. Many here seem to take it WWAAAYYY too seriously, and get their knickers in a wadd over what's the better setup or whatever.

That's why I like the guys at my field. 90% of the time we're not even talking helis. Just watching the show while other guys are flying, and chatting about whatever.

Whatever, it's a hobby for me too. I don't brag about it either - nobody does, but I am pretty into it. It's a helluva lot of fun

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I can fly all day in the field behind my house and not worry about anything BUT im so happy I joined the club I did.A bunch of the coolest,nicest guys I ever met.There all more than willing to help with anything you need help with.If they see somthing wrong they will let you know and fix it for ya.I thought I was having a blast flying by myself but when you have pilots that can smack the heli around I find myself watching and not flying sometimes.I made alot of friends with the coolest people ive ever met and the best part is,its a heli only club .Theres no "I need to fly your heli to make sure its safe" and all that BS BUT if your spooling up you can bet your last dollar someone is watching to be sure nothing is wrong.If your blades are loose or somthing is wrong they will let you know before your airborn.Its nice to know someone is looking out for you and your heli,when you fly with people thats been flying for 20+ years they see things wrong that you'll never notice .I rather drive 15 mins to my club than walk 2 secs out my back door,I love my club,I love my site and I love flying with the guy's/frineds I fly with .

Now guys you do have some people who think there are hot shots because they can fly and fly very well. These people for get they where there once when they where new and needed help, we all was new to his hobby and needed help. How do you think Curtis Youngblood or Todd Bennett or Alan Szbo got to where they are now they was once a beinnger and needed help and or yeah they crashed also. I can remember back in the late 80's early 90's going to the field and neded help but the big shots would not give me help I would wait all day long and after about hours of waiting while they fly some poor soul would come over and help me and i only get in 1 flight. I Can remember getting so frustrated I was about to quit the hobby I got no help. That is why I can understand what FlyingBrian is going through and as for the rules of that club the only thing I can see a experience club member doing is looking over the heli for safety reasons and making sure it is set up correctly and that can save a crash or a person getting injured.
