You'd be surprise of the ridiculous fees for most clubs in Mexico.

There's one club where I live in Queretaro that charges: 200 usd annual fee + 30 usd monthly fee + months in a large queue to become a member. . It has good facilities and pathway but still....it is not a golf course.

Besides, all radio control equipment is at least 30% more expensive than in the USA due to import taxes and shipping.

The hobby is really expensive here.

£50 (about $80 i guess).

if you play golf you would pay a few hundered on clubs MINIMUM and be thousands to join a club, assuming you can get in with the waiting lists.

so we put thousands into the helis and generally complain about the prices to join when they are less than the latest driver or a putter these days.

we need pics of the place with the aircon clubhouse etc.

cheers

FREE !!! ... We have about 30 active members and a sanctioned airstrip. When I say free...there is always some costs involved such as fuel for the mower and snowblower in the winter months but that;s all !! We have formed about 2 years ago because the other club in the area was simply too elitist...we have great fun and everyone is friends...the other club is down to only 5 members and seldom fly anymore.

Ummmm, club #1, $100 a year and then discounts if you are part of work crews and attend meetings. Paved runway (and mown grass), clubhouse (heated in winter if the guy brings the propane heater), outhouse (but nice ones). Club #2, $100 a year, nice mown field, central gazebo, outhouses. Plus MAAC membership of course.

Never thought of the snowblower for winter. We just convert over and use skiis or fly something like Gremlins (Planks). For Helis, convert over to floats. If I could Auto I'm sure I'd get some GREAT sliding autos once the snow falls and gets a nice hard crust on it .

Got Money? Send it to me, I'm a Heli Addict.

Well the one I was talking about, is nothing special like you guys have, $700 initial, then $4-500 per year after, its a grass runway, thats ok, since I dont fly planks, I got a 3d foamy but that dont really count, it dont need no stinkin runway. There is no covered area, no clubhouse, no heat for winter, just a gravel pit area with some tables, and about 4 pilot stations on the runway. Us heli guys in Victoria BC, Canada should get together and get a club for ourselves, screw the plank guys, at this club their the ones that complain about everything. If any heliguy in Victoria is reading this, what do ya think?? If it was just us heli guys, it would be a nice small club, with no problems.

Wedge you can do better
Surely Wedge you can find some place to fly where you don't have to pay that much, if

"There is no covered area, no clubhouse, no heat for winter, just a gravel pit area with some tables, and about 4 pilot stations on the runway."

You could find a park or a highschool field that is not being used. Just buy youself one of those frequency detectors (about 50 dollars US) and check the area out just in case there might be some kind of inteference from someone else and go fly. You could buy a new helicopter every year for the amount of money you are paying in fees.

Yes I could buy a new heli every year for those fees, good thing is I am not paying those riduclous fees, too much for my blood, and yes this is what I did the firs year of heli flying, just went to a local field and flew. However its kinda boring going by yourself all the time, I only have 2 friends that fly heli's that arn't in the club, so its hard to arrange to go flying with someone all the time.

Thanks
