28th March 2017HampshireWaltham Chase Aeromodellers Indoor R/C Small Models Meeting
 Wickham Community Centre, Mill Lane, Wickham, Hants, PO17 5AL

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

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.

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. 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.

21st May 2017West YorkshirePANDAS Sixth Single Channel & Retro R/C Fly-in 2017
 Pontefract Park is located in the southwest corner of junction 32 of the M62. Access is via a huge white gate 1/4 mile south towards Pontefract, WF8 4QD.

The Sixth Single Channel & Retro R/C Fly-in at Pontefract Park, with hosts PANDAS, (Pontefract And District Aeromodellers Society). Last year’s event was a huge success having 120 plus visitors with 50 plus flying and having a great time.

Saturday the 20th is an open fun-flying day, whilst Sunday the 21st sees the actual S/C and Retro RC event - nothing too formal, we'll no doubt have the very popular and just-for-fun spot landing comp and a few prizes for anything special that catches our eye! On the day we will be joined as usual by the SAM35 lads, flying concurrently with the S/C and Retro enthusiasts. In fact any appropriate model from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are welcome. The main objective as usual is to get everyone interested in retro-R/C flying together for equal amounts of banter, burgers, button-bashing and stick twitching!

Every year we have an optional 'theme' session – previously we had the 'Sharkfest', a full squadron of Mercury Galahads, the formation Veron Impalas, the 'Boddo' theme - and last year biplanes and unorthodox models – this year it’s ‘Geometrical Shapes’ for the ‘theme slot’ – deltas, circular models, ellipses etc… though of course the theme is just one event of many and throughout the day any s/c, retro or vintage models are welcome to fly.

Once again we will also have a busy Control-Line circle with the odd have-a-go session.

One special event this year is the Blunderbird Pylon Racing event; this is a low-key fun race using the ugliest model ever to feature in a magazine. Check out November 2016 RMC&E for the reprinted free plan then build one and join in the fun!

Updates and further information will be posted on the PANDAS website www.pandasaero.co.uk and also on www.singlechannel.co.uk as the plans develop.

Any queries regarding location, facilities & organisation to Shaun AND Phil (please cc both). This will ensure you get a reply (or two!):
