New Website! In case you're wondering what's going on, we've switched to a new website. We want to make this the best experience possible for TCRC members, so please be patient while we fill it up with content. We're sure you'll be happy with the results. Let us know if you'd like to volunteer to write for any of the blogs listed at the top of the page.
Aerobatics Practice Remember to practice the first 6 maneuvers of the Sportsman sequence
TCRC will host our first inter club Air Benders Streamer combat fun fly with the Monmouth RC club on Sunday August 3rd at Pulda farms. The Monmouth RC club (MMAC) will in turn host our members for there slalom course fun fly on Sunday August 10th.
My understanding of the slalom fun fly: First, they run things just like us where they have rules and a theme but no one really keeps score and its just for the fun of it. They tell me any airplane is welcome but that mostly they use foamy’s on a 5 gate timed course.
I spent some time with these folks at the clubs 50th birthday/fun fly party and I’m happy to say they are a great bunch of folks and this will be lots of fun. MMAC president Matt Hamilton and the members where very welcoming to us at the event and where extremely excited about this idea. In fact they want to visit our field to see the airplanes we use for streamer combat so they can prepare for it. I will visit them and do the same for the slalom course (if anyone would like to join me please call)
Three more TCRC / MMAC inter club events to follow in the months ahead
It would be a great display of TCRC club unity if we have a respectable turn out for these. I promise it will be fun! Try and make it if you can!
Tri County RC club will be holding an instructional seminar/clinic for club members only on Sunday, September 21st 2014 at the North Brunswick airfield.
This class is for club pilots who would like to enhance their skills as it pertains to our new runway and the challenges it presents
Topics will include:
Situational Awareness & Perspective
Landing approach procedures
Runway vs Grass field landings
Runway vs Grass field takeoffs
Centering on the runway during landings
Club trainers will be on hand but we recommend pilots also bring their own airplanes as a range of models may have dissimilar behaviors and characteristics each pilot may want to explore and become familiar with.
