Welcome to the website of
King's Lynn Aero Model Club.
KLAMC is a must for all keen radio control aero modellers and flyers in the King's Lynn area. It can be very difficult for an individual to build and fly a radio controlled model aeroplane safely. The satisfaction of building an aeroplane from a variety of materials, trimming it out, flying it and finally bringing it down to earth in one piece without causing damage to other people, property or yourself is wonderful and of course essential! Joining a club helps you enjoy your achievements and share the problems and the joys involved. It also is a great sport that is competitive and encourages you to achieve a range of skills at all levels and result in a flying model! The sport takes many forms and includes powered gliders, acrobatic and 3D craft, sports aircraft and of course the ever popular Warbirds.
Models range from those powered by small internal combustion engines (IC), petrol engines (GAS) and jet turbine. The aircraft may be modelled from traditional balsa wood, fibre glass, various foam materials, carbon fibre, etc. Or if you really don't enjoy modelling or want to get flying with an Almost Ready To Fly (ARTF) training model there is vast range of models to choose from and good advice can be obtained from club members.
