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 PICS menu features photos and reports of summertime flying, and the best of the Soo Modellers videos are found in the FLICS menu. The INDOOR menu includes info, updates, and photos taken indoors in the gym during wintertime. 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...
 
We hope you enjoy the site - and we always welcome your questions, comments, and contributions. Contact us!

This year our Corporate Sponsor JD AERO has increased their investment in our club by paying for all the gas needed to maintain our outdoor flying field at the end of Leigh’s Bay Road.
