INDOOR R/C SMALL MODELS MEETING
Following the resumption of Indoor R/C Small Models Meetings, Waltham Chase Aeromodellers have booked the Main Hall at Wickham Community Centre, Mill Lane, Wickham, Hants PO17 5AL for a series of similar events on the following Thursday evenings (all 2023):
March: 9th & 23rd
April: 6th & 20th
May: 20th – Large hall event at the Havant Leisure Centre, PO9 2AY, 6pm-9pm, £7 for adult fliers, £1 for junior fliers and adult spectators.
June: 1st, 15th & 29th
All meetings will run from 7.00 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. The hall is not large enough for conventional shock flyers, but has proved suitable for smaller indoor R/C models.
Models to be flown at these meetings are to be limited to a maximum weight of 95 grammes (3.5 ounces) for fixed wing aircraft, in flight trim, including battery (not to exceed a 2-cell Li-Po pack). Helicopters are to be limited to a rotor diameter of 12” (305mm). All models will be weighed before flight, and will be judged on their suitability for the venue on the evening. Fixed wing models such as the Parkzone Ultra Micro series appear to be most suited to the hall.
Flying at these events will take place generally in accordance with our procedures developed at the regular indoor R/C events, details of which are available on our website.
Admission to the meetings will be £5 for fliers and £1 for spectators and junior fliers, whilst accompanied junior spectators and parents of junior fliers will be admitted free. Fliers will be required to show proof of insurance.
Waltham Chase Aeromodellers look forward to welcoming all R/C indoor fliers to these events. For further details please contact:
