Photos from the 2015 Father Hennepin Event Posted

After a very long delay (I appologize) I have been able to find some new software that allows me to create photo galleries again.  I have posted the photos from the 2015 Father Hennepin Event that Tim Wirtz championed.  You can click here.  Or you can click on the Photos link to the left and then click on the 2015 Father Hennepin Event link from the Photos page.  Enjoy...

David P. Anderson Pen's an Article

Our very own member David P. Anderson wrote an article entitled TCRC Lands On A Permanent Field for a Norwegian RC Airplane Magazine. Click here to read his article.

FAA's Interpetation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft

By now you all should be aware of the FAA's Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft released on June 23rd, 2014.  Click here for the FAA document.  The board has discussed this at meetings, in newsletters and the AMA has been updating everyone online.

To comply with the FAA rule change, all TCRC flying fields and events will now be LINE OF SIGHT only.  That means that, when flying aircraft capable of FPV, the pilot must be in direct visual sight of the aircraft.  The pilot is not allowed to fly using a  buddy box, spotter, goggles or the screen of a phone, laptop or other computing device in lieu of direct visual sight.  Goggles and the screens of phones, laptops or other computing devices can be used by someone OTHER THAN the pilot.  An example of this would be when the pilot wanted to give another person ‘a ride’.  There are other rule changes from FAA which the board will continue to monitor but this seems the most major change being enforced and effects our members most significantly.  AMA is questioning these changes and we will comply with whatever the final ruling is.  Please contact Bob or other board members if you have any questions or concerns.

Show and Tell Form - Download Now

Are you going to be bringing your latest airplane project to the membership meeting? If you are, make sure you download the ‘Show & Tell Data Form’.

When you bring your plane to the meeting, fill out the form – it will only take a minute or so – and bring it with you. The form can both help you in covering all of the information on your plane, and can also benefit the newsletter editor so that he can use the form to put together the Show & Tell article in the next newsletter. Click here to download a copy of the Microsoft Word form

Reminder to all People Flying at the Jordan Field or Fairgrounds

Anybody who fly's at the Jordan field or Fairgrounds must display a 2015 AMA membership card or 2015 TCRC membership card in order to fly.  A no exceptions policy will be enforced.  This is a requirement of our AMA Club Charter and insurance policy. 

We ask that current members help enforce this rule as we are all responsible to protect our flying sites.  If you witness somebody flying without a current card please politely inform them of our policy and ask them to stop flying until they can show proof of membership.
