Heli Flyers in Niagara
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Winter is still here, and flight time is severely hampered, so Web time is up. In browsing anything and everything to do with RC Heli's, I have noticed that there are some Heli specific clubs across Canada. But none I have found in the Niagara Peninsula.
The question is very straight forward, are there enough of us, and is there enough interest, to consider creating a Heli club somewhere in Niagara, to promote the hobby, support each other and so on.
I have been flying for roughly one year now, mostly at home or at the farm, almost always solo. The learning curve has been slow, but the lessons learned and skills improving very quickly. If a Heli club existed the time could have been shorter.
Let me know.....
Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after...

I can tell you that StoneyCreek also may be able to help.There are heliflyers there also.
I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.

Our club (Niagara Region Model Flying Club) has some heli flyers. There are about 6 or 8 of us that do fly helis regularily. Our club fly both planes and helis at the same field. We are also developing a new field at this time and our club will have 2 fields to choose from. In the future, our club might allocate field time for helis only at one of the fields, along with park flying time, and/or giant scale.
If you need any help with your helis, send me an email through our website. I have helped many people get started in helis. I love flying helis and it would NOT be an inposition to ask me for help if you need it.
