Come to a Membership Meeting

All meetings are held in the Reception Hall of the Bunker Bar at 1950 South Eber Road, at 7:00 PM on the first Wednesday of each month. Prospective members and guests are welcome to attend. All current members are encouraged to attend. These are held so that the members can stay informed about what’s happening in the club. They’re also a forum to ask questions and express opinions.

Review the club by-laws before joining so you know the process and club rules. There’s nothing out of the ordinary or complex, just organizational stuff to keep things running smoothly. Find the link to the by-laws here.

After reviewing the by-laws fill out an application and bring it to the next meeting to join the Toledo Flying Tigers RC Model Club. Find the link to the application here.

Flight Training

Wednesday evening training begins in the spring, watch for an announcement.

We also have an on-call system for our trainees. We ask that when a trainee wants to use our program, he/she contacts the training coordinator to arrange to meet an available instructor at the Geiser Road Flying Site for training at the pre-arranged time.

Training days for non-soloed pilots is usually on Wednesday evenings although training can be anytime the field is open, with the exception of special events and field maintenance.

Training Coordinator: Tim Hartigan

Flight Simulator

Consider purchasing a flight simulator available at your local hobby store or at various online sites. This will allow you to get familiar with operating the sticks, learning the direction of the plane and get accustom to flying your model. The more you use the simulator the faster you will solo.
There are models that include a separate transmitter and others that allow you to use your transmitter via USB dongle.

Here are a couple examples of popular simulators:

 

RealFlight RF8 Horizon Hobby Edition: RC Flight Simulator Software DVD Only

 

Spektrum SPM Wireless USB Simulator Dongle WS1000 Wireless connects your Spektrum DSM2/DSMX Spektrum Transmitter to your PC so you can use your transmitter.

 

RealFlight RF8 Horizon Hobby Edition: RC Flight Simulator Software DVD with Interlink-X Transmitter if you don’t own a Spektrum transmitter needed to hook to the dongle above.
