Calling all flying enthusiasts join us for the Davenport Radio Control Society's 19th Annual Fun Scale Fly-In. This event will feature radio control models of full scale aircraft and will be held Saturday – June 14th at Norman Frye Memorial Field located on the northwest corner of Seven Cities Sod Farm. The show is free to the public and flying will start around 10 a.m. continuing until about 3 p.m.
Attendees will have the opportunity to see radio controlled scale models up close and to converse with expert modelers from the surrounding area. There will be a wide variety of aircraft flying competing for trophies awarded by participant voting.
All of the models will be scale replicas of actual full scale aircraft. Military planes from WWI and WWII are popular modeling subjects and several examples from aviation's early years are sure to be on hand. There will also be highly aerobatic models performing maneuvers that the full scale counterparts are incapable of. Aerobatic models can achieve a power to weight ratio much greater than that of full scale aircraft giving them much greater aerobatic capabilities. Models of vintage civilian aircraft are also expected to compete.
Lunch will be available on site catered by Hy-Vee, come out and make a day of it. For further information, contact, Phil Vernon (563) 343-1380, or email big.phil@mchsi.com or see our web site at http://www.davenportrc.org.
Directions to flying site: Take highway 130 north from I-80, turn left on 210th Street, go straight through stop sign at Wisconsin Ave and then turn right on 120th Avenue, proceed about ½ mile to flying field.
