Chicago Area Indoor RC?
I'm new to the idea of indoor RC. I'm looking for events in the NW Chicago suburbs that I might visit to look, listen and learn. Can anyone here point me to such events or a club website?
Thanks in advance!

Mark, Venture Hobbies sponsored a Friday Night at the Buffalo Grove Golf Dome and a South Suburban Group runs one on Sat night in Bensonville I believe. Sure one of the Club members will give details soon.

Yup. Bensenvile golf dome flys Fridays and Saturdays 9-12pm, if I remember correctly. If you go to the LHS, Strictly RC, (7719 Lawrence in Noorwood) they have flyers about it. $175 for a season pass, Starts Nov. 2 or something, and goes to April. Or it's $10 at the door. Frequency controlled,you need AMA, but it's the 2nd largest golf dome in US! Great people, and usually a guy from WI comes down with a stock of spare parts to sell when you break a prop or need some CA. Just ask Glenn at Strictly RC and he'll tell you all about it (If I didn't already )
Also, there's a Buffalo Grove golf dome, but it's smaller and arranged in a wierd way-I prefer bensenville.
If you're into the submicro stuff here, there might be some oppurtunities-look at the sticky for micro threads, and find the indoor locations link. It's got lots of info, but some might be old from last year.
EDIT: Here's the link to the sites, but the giant aircraft society sponsored one is no longer in session-it was from last year. Link
