Desert Hawks RC Club Presents RC Air Show 2018

Date: April 14, 2018
Place: Sterling Field in S.A.R.A. Park
Time: 10a.m. to 3p.m.

There will be jets, helicopters, drones, small and large scale airplanes. Acrobatic flying and some competitive events to put the pilots on the edge of their skills. We plan for a few surprises to entertain the spectators.

The event is free but there is a $5.00 Parking Donation to go towards our Airfield Relocation Fund. Load up the car with all your kids and friends and be amazed at the flying skills of our pilots. At 12 noon there will be a static display of all the aircraft on the runway. Spectators are welcome to walk the runway to get a closer look at the aircraft and talk with the pilots.

Bring your own refreshments and a lunch if you like.

Track Committee Update

Construction of the RC Short Course has been completed. The track is not officially open, we are still in process of cleaning up and doing final adjustments. The official opening will be after the General Membership Meeting on Saturday, September 9th.

With Club permission, the Track Committee would like to hold an Open House on Sunday, September 24, 2017. The purpose of the Open House will be to invite the Lake Havasu Community to see our facility. Pilots will be invited to fly with an assigned Club Member Spotter, Drivers will be encouraged to run their cars on either tracks. Membership forms for the club and AMA will be on hand. With participation from club members, we would like to have a flying demonstration from Noon till 1 PM.

A special Thank You goes out to Hot Rocks Hobbies and Lowes for donating material for the track. Special Thank You also goes to our neighbors at the MotoCross track for use of their labor and tractor and to Lowery’s Truck Repair (they service all types of vehicles) for building the Drivers Stand. This project could not have been completed without the support of Dub and Chip Campbell and Pioneer Earth Movers.

Note:  No Club funds were used in the construction of the Short Course or the resurfacing of the Oval Track. A total of $2,500 was raised from the following club members: Tim Price, Phil Hatch Sr (Good Phil), Phil Hatch Jr (Bad Phil), John Warren, and Ed Heil.
