Default Newport News Park R/C Club

Here is my club. Home of "Electrics over Tidewater" (EOT) and many other events throughout the year. EOT will be held the last weekend of September again this year so come on out and enjoy a great day at our club

The Newport News Park R/C Club (NNPRCC) is a group of people who love to build, fly and/or talk about radio controlled model aircraft.

Our club consists of IC engined models for the most part but the Electric crowd is growing. Every time we go to the field and fly ours we get asked tons of questions about electrics and more and more folks are getting into them as well.

Yes you have to be an AMA member to fly at our field.

We will allow Park Flyer members to fly at the event as well.

Franklyn, as a Parkflyer Member you will be limited at AMA fields with what you can fly. At an AMA field it will have to be less then 2lbs and less then 60mph. Anywhere else you go (non AMA field) you can fly what ya want, but damages may not be insured if you are over the limit.
Besides that, its 30 a year. OOOOR, you can do what I did, sign up for the 20 dollar introductory program - that is standard AMA membership, then when its done (90 days) upgrade to the PPP for 10 bucks.
