RCGroups August Place of the Month

Every month we like to feature a group from our Places page. There are literally thousands of Places listed, pointing out sites like flying fields, hobby shops, race tracks and boat ponds all over the world. The RC Map is a great way to find a new place near you and meet some new friends.

This month's featured Place is CARDS Field located in Grand Ledge, Michigan. CARDS stands for Capitol Area Radio Drone Squadron and this club has been around for quite some time, since 1970 actually. They are the largest RC club in the Lansing area and they have one amazing place to fly. This is a gold level AMA charted club and they are always looking for new members and to get more people involved in the RC hobby.

The flying site is spectacular. They have two runways, one running north/south that is 500' x 150' and one running east/west that is 1000' x 150'. There's plenty of room for aircraft of all types and the grass is well maintained for easy take offs and landings. This club hosts several events throughout the year so be sure to check it out if you are ever in the area.

An old friend from High School invited me to move back there with him, 28 years ago. In Dowagiac, near Kalamazoo. About a 3 hour drive from Chicago. I bet the winter’s are pretty COLD there. Out here in Cali, people cry when it gets below 70 F.
