south alabama radio control modelers

AMA Charter  #1390

Welcome to our new website.

We are a radio control model airplane flying club located in Foley (Southern Baldwin County), Alabama.

The goal of the South Alabama Radio Control Modelers (SARCM) is to promote and advance interest, skill and fellowship of its members in the hobby of building and flying radio control airplanes, to foster an interest in this hobby in non-members, and to provide a meeting place and a flying site for members. This web site was designed to serve our members as well as those of you that are interested in becoming involved in the hobby.

Come out and visit with us. You can watch or bring your planes and fly as a guest. We have shelter, benches, electricity, water, bathroom facilities and a 700 ft X 1200 ft closely mowed grass flying field. Directions to the flying field and information on Membership Procedures can be found from the menu at About us/Club info. If you would like any additional information EMAIL ME.

Quadrocopters: I wanted to add a section on quadrocoptersairplane1 and provide some links for those that might be interested. So I asked Tommy Patterson for some help and he said you only need one link. Here it is

Charles Lindburg's Transatlantic Flight: Win Perkins, a real estate appraiser who specializes in airport properties, has painstakingly assembled news footage from five cameras that filmed Lindbergh's takeoff from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, and mixed it with enhanced audio from the same newsreel sources. He has produced a video of that historical moment unlike any other yet seen.

As a 25-year-old U.S. Air Mail pilot, Lindbergh emerged suddenly from virtual obscurity to instantaneous world fame as the result of his Orteig Prize-winning solo non-stop flight on May 20-21, 1927, made from Roosevelt Field located in Garden City on New York's Long Island to Le Bourget Field in Paris, France, a distance of nearly 3,600 statute miles (5,800 km), in the single-seat, single-engine purpose built Ryan monoplane Spirit of St. Louis. Lindbergh, a U.S. Army Air Corps Reserve officer, was also awarded the nation's highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his historic exploit.

"Please help us keep the area clean and attractive by depositing your trash in the bag on the table. Smokers make sure you do not leave any butts. One of our smokers throws his lit butts at the rear of his car and takes them with him when he leaves. Remember, Don't Leave a Footprint."

Outstanding new site.

This site has everything. Steps for beginners, reviews of planes, electronics and accessories, how to articles, flight maneuvers, building, electric power, airframes, engines and more. For example check out Engines 101 Part 2. Awesome!

The manual says to set the CG 95-105 mm from the leading edge. What is that in inches? You are looking at a 7.5 cc engine. How does that compare to a OS 46 engine?
