A work box with 1 gallon fuel tank and a pair of 15' two prong extension cords have been donated to the 'club and are available to our members who need them. They are in the storage shed at our field. Visit our "Free for Members" page to see other items available to our members at no charge.
Quad Race Course!
The quad race course at the North side of our field has been repaired after earlier spring storms had knocked down several of the obstacles. Feel free to try running through the course with your quads. Below are a few videos of Jimmy's quads navigating the course.

New Mural at the Field!
In our continuing efforts to improve the outdoor flying, Jimmy Gaona has created a mural of the Angelo RC logo which was painted on the side of the storage shed. He was inspired to do this when we didn't have a background to take a group photo at our outdoor fly-in! The mural is a great addition to the field!
Who's Flying What at the Field!
Ever wonder what type of aircraft our members are flying at the field? Need help trying to build or fly your aircraft and wonder who in the club has a similiar model? Now you can see a list of our members with pictures of what types of aircraft they fly.

Earlier this month, the bearings on the PTO clutch wore out and put the lawnmower out of commission, however, after much research and troubleshooting by our club members, we have repaired the PTO clutch, replaced the PTO cable, the blade belt and the steering tie rod. Now the lawnmower is working better than ever!
Thanks to John “Bubba” Brotherton, Gary Jones, Jim Fogelman and Jimmy Gaona for providing the labor to fix the lawnmower. Big thanks to Bubba for purchasing the new PTO cable, blade belt and tie rod for the mower. Also thanks to Mark Greer for finding a vendor to refurbish the mower’s PTO clutch, which saved us about $700 off the cost of having to buy a new one.
