The Screaming Eagles R/C Club is located
about five minutes down the road from my house so there are not many excuses to
not fly on short notice. The club caters mostly to Radio control but has
room for a grass control line circle adjacent to the parking lot. The club
has many fun activities throughout the year and is geared toward the
noncompetitive events. The
runway is paved as is the pits and taxi ways. The grass is kept short
north of the runway for the softer landings.

|Here's a great picture of Scott Black's
Sig 1/4 scale Cub and kids, Emma and Kyle. A day at the
photographers with his planes was a Father's Day present from his wife
last year. Great looking kids, the cub isn't bad either.

Stearman biplane. Joe is kind enough to treat us with a flight now and
then with smoke. The plane flies very scale like and is an attention
plane restraints are installed in every pit at the Screaming Eagles field and
are a great safety feature. They easily lift off of the stab before taxing
out of the pits. Before starting the plane you make sure that there is no
slack in the restraint to keep the plane from lunging forward.
Black's North Star airplane is kitted by
Balsa USA. It is an amphibian, able to fly off water and snow when its
removable landing gear are taken off. The Screaming Eagles newsletter editor
Scott Black is at the controls while Jim Lutes pits. Thanks to Tim Mills
and Scott Black for the
information on this plane.
Maxwell flying one of his floater airplanes. Bob enjoys flying all types
of airplanes along with an occasional helicopter now and then. Bob is also
a flight instructor who has taught countless pilots. Bob also runs the
Boys School instruction program where some of the boys from the school are
allowed stick time on one of the club trainers.
Ragsdale prepping his Goldberg 300. Power is a Y-S 120. The airplane
has plenty of power and draws a nice vertical line. Steve is also known in
the R/C Pattern circles and is a meticulous builder and flier.
