jul17Club Night Thursdays

 
On Thursday evenings (after 7:00 pm and weather permitting) club members make a special effort to get together at the field to show off their latest models, resolve technical issues, and do some flying! This is also an excellent opportunity for new members, and anyone interested in the hobby, to come out to our flying site and meet the Soo Modellers...

Welcome to the online home of the Soo Modellers RC Model Airplane Club. 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 in the HISTORY menu. 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.
 
Our primary area of interest nowadays is Radio Controlled Flying Models - of all types - including EP (Electric Powered), IC (Internal Combustion) and un-powered (sailplanes). We fly outdoors during summer and indoors during winter. We always welcome new members. For more info... Contact us
 
The main menu (above) also provides information about our FLYING SITE which is suitable for both land and water based operations. We have been flying INDOOR for eight seasons, and some of the finest world class indoor photographs by Peter Smith can be found here. The PICS menu includes some superb photos taken at our current flying site, which was opened in 2010. The best of the Soo Modellers videos are included in the FLICS menu. The MEMBERSHIP menu provides useful information about the club that is available to all visitors, and a Login Form to access site content that is of interest to members only.
 
The menu on the left - Heard at the Hangar - includes items that are updated on a regular basis, and includes a Calendar of Events. The Cartoon and Video of the Week are updated every weekend. Other recent and upcoming events are featured here in addition to some interesting links...
 
The weather widget is accurate for the weather at our flying site, but the wind speed is in m/s - which I cannot change. For now - just multiply by 3.6 to get kph.
 
We hope you enjoy the site - and we always welcome your contributions and comments.
