If you are new to the hobby and have never flown an RC airplane or it’s been a while since you have it is advisable to seek help before taking to the air and risking personal injury and damaging your airplane.
While many of our members are excellent pilots and very willing to help we do have one that excels in helping new members or visitors with little or no experience get into the air safety and help you obtain the skills necessary for the safe operation of your brand-new airplane.
Safety is the highest priority of the Desert Hawks RC Club. We are a charter member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and adhere to their Safety Code, found at HERE.
We also have Club Safety Rules which must be followed by all members and visitors while operating a model anywhere on our Sterling Field RC Complex. These rules are posted below for viewing.
You may also download a PDF version of these safety rules HERE which will open in a new window.
RC Car Racing
If you are more into car and buggy racing you are in luck.
Over the past few years, the Desert Hawks RC Club has built two race tracks, a dirt oval, and a short course track.
This past year the local hobby shop owners have organized formal races. They had the expertise and equipment necessary to hold competitive events, and Desert Hawks RC Club had the facility. This was the beginning of a win-win relationship.
