Yesterday morning and afternoon, the Flagler County RAMS Club, radio-controlled model airplane club, hosted a day where they opened to the public. This allowed anyone who wanted to check out the club, what they do, and even try flying some of the radio-controlled planes, to attend and interact with instructors and club members.

The day started off with five stations where people could fly planes, but the wind was working against them, and by the end of the day, there were only about three working planes left.  Instructors worked with anyone who wanted to try flying a radio-controlled plane, including small kids. They were able to take a turn actually controlling the plane in the air, turning, maneuvering, and even attempting to land it.  Instructors would only take over flying when they felt that the plane was getting too far, or the wind was causing too many issues.

People were able to ask about the club, what it costs to join, and how they could become a part of this. The club members told many people that they love having the kids come out, and they love teaching the kids about this fun hobby. It is also free for children under the age of 18 to join the club.

This club has space right off Old Kings Rd. on the south side of SR100.  They are usually there every day between sunup and 12pm. So even if you missed the open to the public event yesterday, you can still head out to catch them almost any day of the week.
