CLUB MEETING ON APRIL 22 HAS BEEN POSTPONED...

Stay tuned for the re-scheduled time and location.


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 as well 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. This part of the site is being updated on a regular basis. The PICS menu includes some truly 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, such as the Calendar of Events for the Soo Modellers and Northern Ontario Zone. The Cartoon, Video, and From across the pond... features are updated every weekend. Other recent and upcoming events are featured here in addition to some Some Interesting links...
 
If your club's upcoming event is missing from the calendar... or... you have updates or a link you would like to share here - please let us know!
 
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.
 

WEBSITE CONTENT WANTED

 
We are always thrilled to receive new content of all types - stories, updates, photos... from club members and friends alike - so please don't hesitate to contact us directly - or via the Contact us form.
 
I hope you enjoy the site!   Your friendly neighborhood webmaster,
