The Davenport Radio Control Society will host an exhibit of radio controlled model aircraft at NorthPark Mall on Saturday, March 8. The show will be held in the Von Maur court area. Models from various local clubs will be featured and will allow the viewing public to see planes from the area's most talented builders. Experienced modelers will be on hand to answer questions about building and flying radio controlled models. In addition to static model displays, we will have a realistic computer simulation to allow interested individuals to try their hand at flying radio control models without the risk of crashing Members from local helicopter and boat clubs will also display models. The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information contact, Phil Vernon (563) 386-8205.
