President's Message

Hello all,

It's been a little while since my last message but we're hoping to get the newsletter back on track for you to enjoy.

A lot has been going on with the field and club since our last update. As most of you know, construction on Spur Road is ongoing but we're hoping to have our field back to its original configuration by the end of the month. We must be extra careful not to overfly the construction zone in the interim. Remember that the black fencing bordering the soccer fields and basketball area is strictly off limits and anyone flying near or over that area will have their flight privileges revoked.

Please do not drive through the construction area to get to the field. The correct way is to continue on Perimeter Rd. past Spur Rd to L Street. Left on L and continue to the barriers on the main runway, turn left at the barriers and veer left to the next set of barriers. Drive though the second barriers and you will see the field. Sounds a lot more difficult than it is!

In December we had our first annual food drive/fun fly. Despite the bad weather we had a great turn out and we collected over 480lbs of much needed food for the Second Harvest food bank.

On February 1st we had our first of several safety meetings. The safety meetings are mandatory for all OCRCC members; you must have a 2014 safety sticker on your badge to fly at our field after the last meeting which will be held on Sunday February 9th. The meeting will be conducted on the main runway at 9am sharp. Please make the effort to be on time, if you're late you may be denied a sticker.

Thank you and happy flying!

AT6 Texan has been used extensively in air races. Highly modified ones such as this are seen at racing circuits hitting speed in excess of 100mph!

F16 models such as this have been popularized with advancements in electric ducted fan (EDF) technology. This particular model can reach speed of 140mph!

This is a highly sophisticated micro RC helicopter, Align T-Rex 250. Capable of full 3D aerobatic routine, yet small enough to fit on the palm of your hand!

One of the more popular scale warbird at the field, F4U Corsair, has distinctive gull wings. This is an all foam E-Flight model coming in for landing.

Truely a classic, the Cessna Skylane 182 was introduced in 1956 and has taught tens of thousands how to fly. This scaled version is also a good trainer for the RC pilots.

This Andrew Jesky designed "Slick" is a high performance 3D aerobatic plane. In the hands of capable pilots they can perform just about any manuevers.

One of the more well known axis warbird of the World War II era, German FW-190, makes its way onto the Great Park taxi way.

A great racers of 1930, the Granville Brothers Gee Bee, is faithfully reproduced by this scale model kit.
