Steven A. Dew

 
It is with regrets that we announce the passing of Steve Dew on October 9, 2017. Steve was a generous man, always available for field work, and was a true master at equipment maintenance. A long time Soo Modeller, he was a past president of the club, and served as MAAC zone director.
 
He will be dearly missed by family and friends.

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!
 
Your friendly neighborhood webmaster,
 
Christian Moes
