Seminole R/C of Tallahassee Florida is hosting their annual Springtime Helicopter set up clinic, April 16-17, 2005. We will have some of the best flyers in the Southeast available to help you set up your model, radio, and motor. Everyone from the beginner to world class flyers are welcome. We guarantee that, if you want to know, you will learn some things about models you didn't know before. Demos and coaching of AMA Class I, II, III, and FAI F3C will be available.
There is a pilot raffle/giveaway from sponsors like: Miniature Aircraft, Futaba/GP, JR/Horizon, Airtronics, Morgan Fuels, Wildcat Fuels, Rick's, RC Helis Plus, Duralite, MHT, and more. AMA is required to fly at this field and there is a landing fee of $20.
Check with the guys that have been here before, this is a FUN event.

Tallahassee Springtime Helicopter Clinic

Tallahassee, Florida
Sponsored by the Seminole R/C Club

This clinic is designed to provide assistance and encouragement to pilots of radio controlled helicopters that may have an interest in competition or who want to make their model fly as good as it can. Technical assistance with all aspects of helicopter and radio setup will be available from some of the hobby’s top contest pilots.

The schedule of maneuvers for FAI and AMA Classes I, II, and III will be demonstrated. Pilots will have an opportunity to fly the maneuvers and have them critiqued by experienced contest pilots. There will also be demonstrations (flying and static display) of scale model helicopters

If you have an interest in competition, need assistance with setting up your model or radio for either Sport Flying or Competition, or just want to have some FUN, come join members of Tallahassee’s Seminole Radio Control Club for this event.

Better directions
The hotels are arranged by distance from our field. If you stay off any of the I-10 exits (199 or 203), there is a better way to get to the field than following US 27 through the middle of town. Go I-10 EAST to the US 90 east exit (I think it is 209B), exit on second ramp and go east toward Monticello. Go to the first light, Chaires Crossroad, and turn right (South) go about 5 miles across country, crossing Buck Lake Rd. (stop sign) and a RR track. Go straight across RR to the next light. This is US 27 (Apalachee Pkwy) Turn right (west) and go about 2 miles. You will pass the entrance to the Leon County Landfill on the right. About 300 yds past that, again on the right, is the entrance to our field with a big sign that says Seminole Field. It is right before Capital Heights Baptist Church which is located immediately after our gate. Turn right and follow the road about 1/2 mile to our field. Road is gravel turning into sand but is passible all the time.
If you stay on 27 South, head out of town (southeast) go about 4 miles. When you see Williams road on the right, look left for the church and our sign.
Hope to see you.
Any questions, feel free to pm me.
