Camp & Fly Fields for 2018

Is Your club field or event Camp & Fly Ready for 2018?

Camp & fly r/c fields or events are those that allow, can accommodate and even encourage camping at the r/c field. What could be better that an awesome day of flying, then socializing at the campfire or the screened tent, a good nightís sleep in your camper, then up early for a dawn patrol flight with your E powered Spitfire! The camp & fly movement is growing, even local club members are camping at the field to enjoy this part of the aeromodelling hobby. Weíve been doing the camp & fly at r/c events for almost 20 years, itís a favourite part of the hobby, time to get more of you on board the camp & fly RV!

We are getting town rcerís that are doing the camp & fly at our field for up to 10 days, this is a small boost to the local economy and can be shown to the local government that our r/c field is a recreation and economic plus to the area.

I do know that out of town campers or rverís like specific camping information like: where is the closest rv dump, is there power at the field, water, toilets, generator policy, pet policy, length of stay, fees? More camping information helps to increase the number of out of town rcerís that may travel to your event.

A camp & fly field info template is available in word format at: or pdf at

An example of the completed IRCMC rc camp & fly information sheet at an

For those of us in the Midwest area Iíve set up a Facebook group page RC Camp & Fly Mid-West Area RC Camp & Fly Mid-West Area Facebook group at: where you can share camp & fly information in this area. Feel free to set up an R/C Camp & Fly Facebook group for your area then we can link the groups together.

What if your current field cannot accommodate camping? Providing concise information on good local campgrounds, B&Bís, restaurants and motels on your FB club page or web site helps, more information supplied shows you welcome out of town rcerís at your event!
