    New Brisbane RC Club Coming SOON!

    Just a note to inform those in the Northern Suburbs of Brisbane, (Aus), that a new club is forming and will start in the new financial year.

    The club will be less a pile of rules and regulations and more a club of promoting responsible RC flying.

    Some of the things already established are;

    Demo flight models with Buddy Box setup to give first flight experiences to those spectators wishing to give it a try.

    Assistance with learning to fly including loan aircraft, Repair assistance, and even Building assistance for those who wish it.
    Proper flight instructors with path to licence if required.

    Assistance with plane setup and pre-flight and even Test flights if requested.

    A "Free" FT aircraft, (no Electronics of course), as a gift upon successful completion of first level competency for financial members.

    3 flying fields to chose from with a new field, (Fourth), being supplied by local authorities as main field.

    Repair service available for all aircraft, (you supply or pay for any required parts).

    Retired aircraft pooled and available for sale, (Nominal fee), with funds going towards club assets and running expenses.

    Building assistance and even a building service available.

    Loan wing and fuselage Jigs, 3D Printing and a plans service.

    NO ANONYMOUS members and club service suppliers available via email for outside hours assistance.

    A minimum of 3 field days each week, (subject to weather conditions).

    Currently trying to negotiate member discounts with local parts suppliers and model shops for preferred supplier status.

    Perhaps if all works out it could be the RC club model of the 21st century!

    Sounds like you have a nice start mate. Good luck in growing the club. I think it will be easy if you are able to keep up with all that stuff to help new pilots. How many existing members are there to start with all that? Covering 3 - 4 fields would be hard work for sure.

    The club is being formed with about a dozen members who are all experienced fliers and all of them are a little tired of the "Empire Builders" that seem to rise to control and dictate the old style clubs.

    The 3 current and one new field to be available soon are already fully maintained by either the local council or the field owner or lessee. Our instructors cover both Mode 1 and Mode 2 and a multitude of different radio types.

    A pool of trainer aircraft is already being assembled for use by visitors and newbies, (under expert guidance of course). The only rules we are enshrining in the club rules are safety and behaviour related.

    All visitors welcome, so pack your radio gear if you ever holiday in the vicinity!
