Welcome to the Angelo RC Inc Website!

San Angelo’s Radio Controlled Aircraft Airfield! Spectators Welcome! If you see aircraft flying at the field, please come in and visit! Contact us at angelorcflyers@gmail.com or contact our President Charlie Campbell at 325-651-8027.

The New Club Mailbox has been installed at the field!

Our official club address is 4682 Arden Rd, San Angelo, TX, 76901.

Use the address above to send mail to the club. The new mailbox is locked to restrict access and is weatherproof to protect mail from the elements. Having the mailbox at the field saves us $240 per year in mailbox rental fees. Thanks to Jim Mohling and Bubba Brotherton for installing the mailbox at the field! West Texas Game Feeders built the post.

The Angelo RC Airfield is now a FRIA approved Site!

Thanks to Gary Jones for submitting our application and getting our site approved!

What is FRIA?

A FRIA is a defined geographic area where drones or UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) can be flown without Remote ID equipment. Both the drone and the pilot must be located within the FRIA’s boundaries throughout the operation. In addition, the pilot of the drone must be able to see it at all times throughout the duration of the flight.

Note: If a drone is equipped with Standard Remote ID, it may not be disabled or shut off while flying in a FRIA. 

All aircraft over .55 lbs or 250 grams must have a FAA registration number attached to the frame, even if within the FRIA boundary.
