M.A.R.C.S. RC club is proud to announce the Central Arkansas Heli Fun Fly will be held on June 7th-9th at MARCS field in North Little Rock Ark.

Landing fee will be 25.00, including lunch provided on Saturday. This is a laid back, open flying event at a great field to fly at.

This is an "Electric Heli Friendly" field with many receptacles for charger stations and are covered. There is a small building with AC in case you need to cool off or have company in need..

If you are still on the fence about coming to the event, you might want to listen up.

I just talked to Curtis Youngblood and he is donating a Rave Ballistic 635 kit for the event. I do not have the details yet of how that will take place but the winner will receive a gift certificate for the kit and Curtis will ship it to the winner.

Thanks Curtis, we really appreciate your support.

Here is the website and gps coordinates:

Looking Forward To It Too!!!
This is going to be a fun event... one of our club members has a connection for us to get the lights for night flying... I may have to stay up late enough to stay and get a flight or two in under the lights...
Also, ALL SCALE heli pilots are welcome along with the 3D guys.. in fact ANY LEVEL heli pilot is welcome.. come on out and have a lot of fun with us on our home field...
I am working on getting a flight station at either the north end or the south end that will be set up for the newbie and scale pilots.. since we are spreading out this should be no problem..
Thanks, Stan

Getting Closer
Wanted to get this back out front so that a lot more people can plan this trip... I was at the CHF last weekend and it looked like a mini IRCHA!!! I think the ratio of pod and boom to scale had to be close to 50/50.. nothing short of amazing...I got to meet a lot of new friends there, and all were/are invited to our event... we will have a separate flight station, just for the scale heli pilots.. it sounds as if we are going to have a great turn out... so plan on joining us in Little Rock and also to have a good time..

RV Parking
We will have limited space for RV's, so if you are going to be bringing one, please let us know ahead of time so that we know how many to expect.. tent camping will be no problem inside of the field fence..
If we get too many Rv's they might need to find alternate parking, possibly in the WalMart parking lot located about 5 miles from the field.. I will also do some checking to see what other possible options there will be..
SO, IF YOU ARE COMING WITH AN RV PLEASE LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE..

Thank You, Stan

Getting Closer!!!!
We have been contacted by Bobby Jacks Hobby, and he will be attending, so there will be a full on heli hobby shop at the event...
So come on out even if you just need parts and pieces to get or help get your machine back into flying condition...

Plan on coming out and having a good time... use the RC Flight Deck in the OP to register early and save all that paperwork upon your arrival..

Thank You, Stan
