NOTICE - (From Jim Bronowski)  - Vandalism at our Field

Club Members,
 
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 situation.

Notice to Club Members -

At the Club Meeting on April 19, 2014, it was decided to take some measures to increase membership and stimulate public interest in RRCC and its activities. A committee will be formed at the next meeting on May 17th, 2014, to consider various ideas for achieving these goals and to make recommendations to the club membership. Those with ideas to consider, or interested in joining the committee, should contact Oscar Weingart at weingart1@earthlink.net.

Some ideas discussed at the meeting included:

(1)    An Open House, or Air Show, with food service, at the field, with trainers available to allow the public to fly a RC model.

(2)    Posters and flyers to be distributed to local hobby shops.

(3)    Establishing relationships with local schools.

(4)    Articles and event listings in local newspapers.

Notice - UCR Engineering Autonomous UAV Project

At the July 19 club meeting, we had a UAV TEAM report on the Competition!!!!
Also see the July Prop Talk (Click Here) for a full Report.

 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, Patuxent River, MD. The Competition is sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), Seafarer Chapter. 
See
http://www.auvsi-seafarer.org/documents/2014Documents/2014_AUVSI_SUAS_Rules_Rev_1.0_FINAL_13_1024_1.pdf for the rules for the competition (Click Here) or (Click Here) for a News release. forThe tasks for the competition 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.
UCR 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, as long as the pilots are AMA members, and the UAV meets all applicable AMA/FAA/FCC/RRCC rules for such UAVs. The training and test flights ended on June 13, and the competition started on June 18. Jim Bronowski accompanied the UCR Team as Safety Pilot. For more detail, including a Press-Enterprise article, see the latest Prop Talk, July, 2014 (Click Here).

LATEST UPDATE
Jim Bronowski submitted the following report on the AUVSI competition on June 24:


Well guys, I'm finally back.  After long, exhausting and late flights, time zone changes and lots of driving, I drug myself home at midnight last night (3 AM Eastern time).  Our young engineers did very well for their first time, 24th out of 36 competing.  There were another 10 teams that did not show or were unable to get their models airborne.  UCR won $1000 for their 24th position.  I was very nervous and had to take off and land three times during our flight time.  A bad compass connection cost us a few points, but overall, we did very well against some of the top engineering colleges in the U.S., Israel, India and Canada.  The boys could not stop thanking our club for all the assistance, without which, they would not have even made the trip.  The old Telemaster has become a good friend of mine.  They took Larry's advice and straightened the landing gear and the wing.  It flew perfectly.  The old bird enjoyed flying against the big boys and kept on ticking like a fine watch.
We had some time to tour Washington and the Smithsonian aviation museums (there are two) and it was worth all the stress and time involved.  I did fill a handkerchief at the Vietnam Memorial as I attempted to find closure with the loss of three of my dear friends whose names are etched on that marble.
Anyway, my aches and tiredness will go away, but those great memories will stay with me for a long, long time.  SKI...
Now for a few pictures:

They will make a presentation about their experiences at the AUVSI Competition at the next Club Meeting on July
19th.
