Unhappy Where did they all go?

Being middle aged and having profoundly fond memories of flying and building control-line as a kid, I find it hard to believe that this forum sits empty.

Ill health has forced me to decide to sell off kits, plans, engines and related periphery.

There is a Balsa Beavers Club that are still active in Golden Horseshoe.

Does anyone know of a Canadian Control line forum or is Stuka Stunt the next best thing?

Re: Where did they all go?

I know the Burlington R/C club has a control line site (Bayfield site) , I'd been there quite a while you could try contact their member to see if they still has that C/L site .

The Balsa Beavers are certainly still very active with permanent circles in Mississauga. Contact Chris Brownhill - chrisb@bristolbabcock.ca - or at 416-255-1289

Re: Where did they all go?

According to the assistant ZD from the Lower Mainland, the c/l site on Rice Mill Rd in Richmond is still operating, and quite busy.

And it IS winter, time to build. I just bought a Blackhawk "Navy Fighter" kit; re-living my misspent youth. The model is based on the old Stunt Runt 1/2A model from the early 50s. It remains to be seen if I can still fly c/l after so many years away from it...
