Future pilot
 
 

Club Night Thursdays

 
On Thursday evenings (weather permitting), club members make a special effort to get together at the field for some flight instruction and RC flying fun. Our flying site is located  HERE.
 
If the gate is open, the public is welcome to come on in, join the fun, and meet the Soo Modellers! 
 
The flying field is a busy place on weekends too! Click on this future pilot (left) for the latest photos in the PICS menu.

spituka
 

Achtung! It's a Spituka!

 
No, it's not one of Hitler's secret weapons, its the mad creation of long time Soo Modeller, the late Paul Butcher. An expert builder and flyer, Paul built and flew RC flying machines of every description over the years.
 
Click Paul and the Spituka (left) to learn the rest of the story and a peek at Paul's photo album -  just added to the PICS menu (above) courtesy of his daughter Sarah!
 

 
Welcome to the online home of the Soo Modellers RC Model Airplane Club. Our club members enjoy the challenges and rewards of all types of Radio Controlled Flying Models. We fly outdoors in the summertime, indoors during winter, and always welcome new members!
 
Our club was established in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada in the early 1940's as you will learn in Doc's brilliant History of Aeromodelling in Sault Ste. Marie included in the HISTORY section (above). There are many other gems here from days gone by, including scanned images from dusty old photo albums and reprints from newsletters of the past.
 
The main menu (above) also provides information about our FLYING SITE which is suitable for both land and water based operations. The INDOOR menu includes info, updates, and photos taken indoors in the gym during wintertime. The PICS menu features photos and reports of summertime flying, and the best of the Soo Modellers videos are found in the FLICS menu. The MEMBERSHIP menu provides useful information about the club for both members and visitors alike.
 
The bulletins and photos above include links to the latest updates in the main menu - and usually stick around for a few weeks...
 
The side menu on the left - Heard at the Hangar is updated weekly and includes everything from the calendar of events to the current wind speed, and several other items of interest
 
We hope you enjoy the site - and we always welcome your questions, comments, and contributions. Contact us!
