Flying - May thru July 2020

 

Thursday - May 21st

 
Peter-John Thompson brought his new "DHC-2 Beaver" to our first flying session of the season. We fine tuned the radio install and decided to wait on less wind for the first flight. Be sure to check out the photos of this model during construction in Members Models
 
New member Nico McIntosh flew his speedy "Sundowner" and Hangar 9 "P-47 Thunderbolt"
 
Mark Primavera and Steve Daly were also in attendance to lend their support.

Sunday Morning - June 14th

 
It was a picture perfect day for flying R/C model aircraft. Eleven "privileged souls" got to breathe fresh country air and enjoy their passion of flying!
 
All who brought planes got "air time" and we all enjoyed each others company.
 
Another first flight for a "stay at home" model, Steve Daly's beautiful 1/4 scale Sig Morrisey Bravo was airborne for the first time this morning. Check out the Stay-at-home Models page for photos of this model during the finishing stages.
 
As a special treat, Soo Modeller Terry Mortimore made a flyby in his 1:1 scale homebuilt RV-6A (photo left). Click here for a photo of this aircraft during construction (Displays & Events 2016).
 
Lets hope the good weather stays with us all summer.
 
'Till next time, stay safe and healthy.   Yours truly, the "flyin' fool",

Club Night Thursday - June 25th

 
Nine enthusiasts enjoyed the evening doing what they love best: fly R/C model aircraft! It was hot and sunny with “nary” a breeze and just a pleasure to be there! We flew ‘till the sun disappeared over the horizon, which of course brought out the mosquitoes on a “feeding frenzy”!

Sunday morning - June 28th

 
It was a gorgeous, calm, sunny morning, as a slew of RC aviators adorned the flight line of the Soo Modellers field patiently waiting their turn to take to the sky! Both the spirits of the fliers and the model fuel consumption were high, as we were doing what we love! By early afternoon the sun and high temperatures sent the majority of us home.
 
Let's hope the “good weather”continues!
 
‘Till then, this is the ”flyin' fool” saying: stay safe, stay healthy,
