Got the chance to hang out with some RC Groups members at Kennmore Middle School. Building and flying remote controlled planes and helicopters can be a very addictive hobby once you get bit by the RC bug.
The afternoon was mostly dominated by homemade foam airpanes ("foamies") of different scales. A few T-Rex model helicopters made an appearance, deftly executing rolls and loops.
The members are very friendly and range from amateurs flying Air Hogs toys (like me) to experts willing to share all their flying knowledge.
The group usually meets up every week at local school soccer or baseball fields, and I would recommend anyone check it out sometime.
