See radio-control planes this weekend

By From page A4 | May 02, 2013

The public is invited to attend the Woodland Davis Aeromodelers’ annual 49er Regional Scale Masters Qualifier, a competition among radio-controlled plane enthusiast.s

Scale airplanes of the full-size aircraft from World Wars I and II and contemporary times are displayed and flown. They are judged on how close they fly to the full-size aircraft.

Static judging will be from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, with flying from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Winners will compete at the nationals held later this year.

The Stunt Control Line event will take place both Saturday and Sunday, featuring aircraft performing precision stunts while tethered to 60-foot metal lines.

Both events are at the new Woodland Davis Aeromodelers Field on County Road 29, 1.3 miles east of Road 102 (Pole Line Road). Admission and parking are free, and food and drinks will be available for purchase. For more information, visit www.wdarc.org.
