 Wickham Community Centre, Mill Lane, Wickham, Hants, PO17 5AL

From 7.00 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. This is the venue at which we hold our popular indoor F/F meetings. The hall is not large enough for conventional shock flyers, but has proved suitable for smaller indoor R/C models. Models to be flown at these meetings are to be limited to a maximum weight of 95 grammes (3.5 ounces) for fixed wing aircraft, in flight trim, including battery (not to exceed a 2-cell Li-Po pack). Helicopters are to be limited to a rotor diameter of 12” (305mm). All models will be weighed before flight, and will be judged on their suitability for the venue on the evening. Models such as the Kyosho “Minium” range, the E-flite Micro 4-site and the Parkzone Ultra Micro series appear to be most suited to the hall.

Flying at these events will take place generally in accordance with our procedures developed at the regular indoor R/C events, details of which are available on our website.

Admission to the meetings will be £4 for fliers and £1 for spectators, whilst accompanied children will be admitted free. Junior fliers will be charged as adult spectators. Fliers will be required to show proof of insurance.
