club logo 250Founded in 1973 we are a well respected club located in north Dorset.  We are a fixed wing model flying club of 100+ members many of whom have had a lifetime of experience in model building and flying. We hold many RC events for fun and competition throughout the year.  We regularly support local communities and charitable events with static and flying displays.  We are open for new members and especially the younger generation who will carry on the hobby of model flying, acquiring skills that our older members have passed on and continuing to carry on the aims of the club into the future.    Are you interested in taking up this immersive and exciting hobby?  For more information on joining us and legislation please read our FAQs first.
