Default clubs in DC area

Does anyone know of an RC club in Howard County? I'm looking for one that will accept a battery powered v-tail flyer. Thanks!

I can't help you with your search, but I will say that I think it's absolutely ridiculous that there's quite a few clubs out there that look down on or won't accept as members those of us who are strictly electric flyers.

Somehow, the term "soaring ass" seems like the perfect name for a group of people in the DC-area.

There are quit a few clubs in the D.C. area and contrary to what gzsfrk has to say, not all of them the way he portrays. D.C.R.C. is one and my son, Scott, is V.P. of another in Virginia. They fly both Electric and Gas at his club along with a few other clubs in the area. If you would like I can IM you his email address. Last July I had the pleasure of visiting there field and found the folks all very friendly and knowledgeable willing to help. I hope to again be in D.C. on the 4th of July and have some fun flying electric.

Just to clarify, what I said above was a reference to the people we elect and send to Washington on the taxpayers' dime--NOT to any groups in the area who fly. Those people are fine with me by definition. Unless, of course, they happen to be a senator or congressman who just happens to like to fly RC planes. That's just not enough to redeem them in my eyes. A step in the right direction, but not enough in and of itself.

ROTFLMAO, On that note I truly have to agree with you.

CASA is also a good club. They are located in Rockville and a couple other towns.

They are primarily a glider club but do also welcome electrics. Their Rockville site (600 E. Gude) is a good place to fly.

Their official web site is: http://www.soarcasa.org/
