Flying site now open...
The Flying Site is now OPEN for the season!
The roadway is still quite soft, so please take care not to make any ruts.

Can we see your MAAC # please?
At one time, it was standard practice to proudly display your MAAC # on the right wing, as well as your name, address, and phone number - more discretely elsewhere on the plane - usually a "Dymo" label. Flyaways and lost models were common in those days. Times have changed... or have they?
MAAC's current policy states: "every model must contain at a minimum, the owners name and MAAC number and the web link www.maac.ca
So, what better time, with flying season 'round the corner, to decorate your models with your MAAC number - plus the additional info to suit. Without his MAAC number on this high performance pattern ship (above), who would guess that it belongs to Cec Marshall?
OK guys, what's going on here?
At the club's regular meeting on April 13th, the annual Stan Lyons award was presented to Tom Thompson and Matt Dunlop demonstrated the potential of a 3D printer to make useful components for the RC modeller (seen here).

Welcome to the online home of the Soo Modellers RC Model Airplane Club. Our club members enjoy the challenges and rewards of all types of Radio Controlled Flying Models. We fly outdoors in the summertime, indoors during winter, and always welcome new members!
Our club was established in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada in the early 1940's as you will learn in Doc's brilliant History of Aeromodelling in Sault Ste. Marie included in the HISTORY section (above). There are many other gems here from days gone by, including scanned images from dusty old photo albums and reprints from newsletters of the past.
The main menu (above) also provides information about our FLYING SITE which is suitable for both land and water based operations. The INDOOR menu includes info, updates, and photos taken indoors in the gym during wintertime. The PICS menu features photos and reports of summertime flying, and the best of the Soo Modellers videos are found in the VIDEOS menu. The MEMBERSHIP menu provides useful information about the club for both members and visitors alike.
The bulletins and photos above include links to the latest updates in the main menu - and usually stick around for a few weeks...
The side menu on the left - Heard at the Hangar is updated weekly and includes everything from the calendar of events to the current wind speed, and several other items of interest
We hope you enjoy the site - and we always welcome your questions, comments, and contributions. Contact us!
