Condors rc club I fly as a guest, teaching some of the guys to fly heli's
this club is also heli friendly.
South County RC club (wpb) i'm a guest flyer, dues are $200 with $200 initation fee which is why i'm not a member yet. (heli friendly)
i'm fortunate enough to be able to fly at each of these locations at my leisure.

Support your local club and get those plank flyers involved in heli's. works for me. c-ya Ron

Link to an aerial photo of our field at Mount Pleasant, Texas, the NorthEast Texas R/C Club. http://www.clubnetrc.com/images/clubfield08.jpg

Link to the web page with more photos, both aerial and from the ground - http://www.clubnetrc.com/field.htm .

These were taken after new asphalt was laid in mid August. (We are STILL waiting on the grass to fill in.)

Lots of covered area with tables at both ends of the club house, electrical outlets at each table, Heli pad at the south end of runway.

LARGE hovering/practice area behind the main field for beginner pilots (where I spend most of my time. ).

Like Terry (loveraptors) said, $100 per year for full membership or $50 per year for associate membership and MUST have current AMA membership. Full members are required to mow in rotation or pay $100 mowing fee.

Not a bad deal, they only ask that you volunteer to help at one of the many Fun Flys they do.

Just one quirk - most of the plank flyers congregate at the north end, while the Heli pilots use the south end.

No Honey, thats always been on my Heli.
I'd list what I have but then she'd have proof!

$45 Canadian. We fly at a municipal park, very large grass field, nice paved parking lot and located in town. The only problem is the city 'rents' the field out to other users on Tues and Thurs nights. It's also electric only which is nice (if you fly electric).

Wedge, that's a ridiculous fee for that field. I've flown there before, it's nice but not that great. It must have something to do with property costs, especially if they are renting the field. Either that or they're trying to limit membership

You mean that is all you pay for a whole year. I pay 3 times that much and have to mow the field once a year confused:

Yup, $45 CDN for the year and the city mows the grass. Up until last year it was only $25 but even at $45 I won't complain. Keep in mind there's 2 days a week (Tues and Thurs) we can't use it past 4pm.

Ok so how many people are in your club
I see that a lot of people are paying least then 50 dollars a year but how many members do you have in your club. Our club is kind of small we only have about 20 active members, so we probably have to pay a little more especially since we have spent several thousand dollars on nice runway.

Now that makes sense
With 300 members now I understand why some may not have to pay as much. However with that many members on a nice weekend, flying time on the flight line could also be limited. And if you have planes flying in the air it could be even more limited

Other than special fun-fly days, I don't think I've ever seen more than 20 people out at one time even in the summer. Luckily I work weird shifts and do most of my flying midweek when there's usually less than 4 people there.
