Night Flying at the Field!
With the day s getting shorter, night flying is a better option. RC aircraft manufacturers are starting to design their models with the LEDs installed or with optional LED kits and it didn’t take long for our members to start purchasing and flying these aircraft at our field. Not only are the flying conditions pleasant compared to day flying, but aircraft flying in the dark looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Now if you drive by our field in the evenings, you can usually see our members flying. Below are pictures of our night flyers!

New FAA Requirement for all Flyers: TRUST Test!
(The Recreational UAS Safety Test)
TRUST (The Recreational UAS Safety Test) is a collaboration between the FAA and industry to provide TRUST and educational safety material to Recreational Flyers who fly unmanned aircraft. Currently there is no deadline to complete this test, however, the test is free to take and easy to pass! The test takes about 30 minutes to complete and can be done anytime. Click on the link below to go to the test, via the AMA website. After completing the test, a certificate will be issued that you can printout and keep with you whenever you fly.
New FPV Assignment Board at the Flying Field!
There is a new video frequency assignment board at the field for pilots who fly with First Person View (FPV) equipped aircraft. Pegs are no longer required to mark your frequency, just print your name by your frequency with the grease pencil provided. If possible, try to use a frequency as far as possible from other frequencies already taken. Thanks to Jimmy Gaona for creating the new board!
Club Trainer Available!
A Hobbico Nexstar Trainer aircraft was donated to the club. With a little TLC from Gary and Bubba, the aircraft is now in great flying condition. Club members can now use the plane for training purposes. For details on how to checkout the plane, assembly and operational instructions visit the Club Trainer page

DJI FPV Invasion!
The latest trend to hit the Angelo RC club is the DJI FPV Drones! What started out as a test flight by AJ Deardorff of the city’s new drone, has now expanded to 3 other members buying the same drones. These are high tech, highly maneuverable drones that are designed for videoing and following fast moving sports activities as well as your traditional videoing. Our members have gone a step further by decorating out their aircraft colorful skins from the Decal Girl website (decalgirl.com). Not only do the skins look good, but they also make the aircraft more visible. You can usually see our pilots flying these drones on Sunday afternoons at our field, so check them out!
