NOTICE - (From Jim Bronowski) - Vandalism at our Field
We are continuing to have vandalism
problems at our field and it seems to be late on Monday nights.
This last Monday someone observed at least six cars at the field
with a big fire going on the runway. There was more damage to
the runway with this fire just like the last ones. Larry
Roberts has notified the police and they have come out twice to
survey the damage. If you happen to observe activity at our
field at night, especially a fire, do not!, I repeat, do not! go
to the field. Notify the police, or better yet, the fire
department (if there is a fire). Larry is working very hard
with local authorities to try and get a handle on this

Notice - UCR Engineering
Autonomous UAV Project
Our Club has been
approached by a group of Engineering students from the University
of California, Riverside, (UCR), for assistance with a competition
to be held in early June at the U.S. Naval Air Station,
River, MD. The Competition is sponsored by the
Association for Unmanned Vehicle
(AUVSI), Seafarer Chapter.
for the rules for the competition (Click

involve autonomous flight of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, (UAV), in
a scenario simulating a forest fire.
UCR has selected an
electric-powered Senior Telemaster RC model as their UAV.
has asked for assistance from the club in evaluating the UAV for
airworthiness, and in training their safety pilots to fly it under
RC control. At the March 15 club meeting, a motion was made and
passed to furnish such help, and the use of our field, but not
with the UAV flying autonomously, as long as the pilots are AMA
members, and the UAV meets all applicable AMA/FAA/FCC/RRCC rules
for such UAVs.
Training began on Saturday, April 5th, at our
field in Perris. UCR team leaders Daniel Robles, mechanical
engineering, and Russell Perry, electrical engineering, attended,
along with Michael Han, UCR safety pilot. Dale Yaney instructed
Michael with an Apprentice electric trainer furnished by Larry
Roberts. Michael did very well, performing several successful
takeoffs and landings during a number of flights.
