Waltham Chase Aeromodellers look forward to welcoming all R/C indoor fliers to the event which will run from 7pm to 9.30pm.

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. Fixed wing models such as 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.

19th March 2017MerseysideLarge Model Static & Trade Show
 Haydock Park Racecourse, Warrington Road, Newton-Le-Willows, St Helens, WA12 0HQ

The Large Model Association have decided that they want to stop those winter blues and get the show season started a bit earlier in 2017.  At the end of every show season we close the year with our static show at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon. We look at the models that are currently being built and look forward to seeing them finished and flying in the new year. Well we thought it would be good to see these finished models up close and chat to the builders before they are put into a full season of flying.

As with any LMA show there is always a good trade presence, so you can get those final items for the coming season or grab an early bargain to start the year.

A bring and buy is also planned so bring the items that you no longer want and wish to sell on.

As with Gaydon there will be a chance to sit in on a various master class tutorials from some of the best modellers around the UK which will be running throughout the day.  Talks will be held on how to glass cloth, Jeti radio, and jet turbines. 

Doors open from 10am. Adults £5 and children under 16 free (when accompanied by an adult). LMA members with valid card £3.00. Bring and buy is £10.00 per table + entrance fee.
