FAC — No-Cal

What is a No-Cal? “No-Cal” is short for “No-Calorie”, which is another way of describing “skinny”, or profile models. The neat thing about No-Cals is that they provide great flight potential while still being recognizable as the real aircraft they represent.



(vintage rules on construction – 50% stab limit, tissue covering, no variable pitch props)

Combined AMA Indoor HLC/CLG
Tem Johnson Memorial Glider Event

This is combined Indoor HLG (Hand Launch Glider) and Indoor CLG (Catapult Launch Glider).
Any indoor glider design which meets the AMA rules can be flown. A Cat Glider is just as difficult as a Hand Launch Glider. You will get to count your highest score of either plane for each month.
With the passing of Tem Johnson we now have the Tem Johnson Glider Memorial Trophy as the prize for the year’s most accumulated points. The winner in addition to bragging rights—will get to display the Tem Johnson Memorial Trophy on their mantle. 🙂

Feb 2017 Model Aircraft of the Month — Jeff Renz’s A-6 Indoor Model Aircraft

Indoor Free Flight Models are very light, slow flying models powered by twisted rubber strips driving a large propeller. Hand launched gliders and gliders catapulted into the air by a loop of rubber strip are also flown indoors. They are flown in school gymnasiums,  auditoriums, and similar large open spaces. It’s not unheard of to have typical flight times
of several minutes powered only by a small rubber band.

Indoor models are one of the least expensive and simplest ways to get started in aeromodeling.
You don’t have to be a member to watch a flying event and the admission is free.
