Blast from the past - the summer of '79!

We are thrilled to feature the latest set of historic photos and more wonderful stories from Dr. Nino Campana - added Sept 28th.
Click on "Batter & Butcher" - two iconic Soo Modellers from the past (left) to view the photos and read how Capt. Beauregard got a new name. Priceless!
Thanks Doc!

Float Fly & BBQ - 2016

The weather was less than ideal, but did not dampen the spirits of the sixteen participants at our first ever Float Fly & BBQ on Sept 10th.
We flew, flew, flew, then enjoyed an awesome barbecue lunch and refreshments. Thanks to Tom for organizing the event, master chefs JP and Larry, and everyone else that helped to make the event a huge success!

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!
