We are a scale R/C (radio control) model aircraft club dedicated to the advancement of scale R/C modeling. Whether it’s jets or warbirds, gas/nitro or electric powered, we model it scale to the full size airplane! It is our goal to grow and share this great hobby.
RCX is only a month away. And as I said at the meeting, it’s time to get signed up! Get your friends signed up too (remember, this is open to anyone, not just Squadron Members!!!)
A few things…
1. RCX has expanded their area for the “BATTLE” so we need every
member to bring at least 1 plane, 2 would be great.
See attached floor plan
2. Please PREGISTER! To do so, sign up at RCFlightDeck.com as a pilot,
and then go to the Battle of the Builders Event and register your plane.

April News is Posted. Don’t forget about the changed location for the April 14th Meeting!
Due do a scheduling conflict, we are not meeting at our normal clubhouse!!!!
The April 14, 7pm Meeting will be at:
Green Valley Family Clubhouse located at 10739 Los Jardines West.
This property is on the south side of Slater at Los Jardines West. There are a few parking places in front of the clubhouse/office and two other side streets in the rear of the clubhouse where the pools are located. Those streets are La Alondra and Sacuillo and you turn left off Los Jardines to enter both streets. There is plenty of parking at these two side streets and you can enter the clubhouse grounds from the side streets mentioned. The meeting times are the same time.
The field will officially open this Saturday @ 7:00AM, additional pictures on http://www.flyocma.com
The new surface is still very tender. It will be curing for the next several weeks. Picnic tables will be secured on the parking lot side of the rail road ties temporarily until it has cured sufficiently to support them.
Chairs have a tendency to stick and damage the surface when moved especially when it warms up. Please do not use your chairs in the pits these first couple weeks. Chairs will be allowed when the tables are moved back into the pits. For now, set your chairs on the parking lot side along with the picnic tables. Sun Shades are allowed, anchors are in place now.
