King’s Lynn Aero Model Club is a must for all keen radio control aero modellers and flyers living in the King's Lynn area and beyond. It can be very difficult for an individual to build and fly a radio controlled model aeroplane safely. The satisfaction of building an airframe from a variety of strong yet light materials, covering it, fitting the radio control gear, running in and testing, trimming it out, flying it satisfactorily 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! It is extremely satisfying!
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!
It combines all the activities of getting airborne but without the enormous expense of an full sized aircraft. Getting into the spirit of a WW1 Sopwith Fighter or a WW2 Lancaster Bomber is within reach. 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 electric motors, small internal combustion engines (IC) to 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 or a good model shop.
