Training Starting April 25, 2022
Instruction is available for GCRCC members on Monday and
Wednesday evenings from 6:30 until dark. We're happy to get
you started as you apply for membership, just bring your AMA card.
This Season we are going to try something different in the way we run the training program. Training will still take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 until we run out of light. We have had many nights the past few seasons where we have 2 or 3 instructors show up to the field, but we do not have any students attend. My idea to help remedy this would be to have the students call me to let me know that they plan to be at training that night, so that I can alert the instructors assigned to that night to be at the field.
As of right now, Training is planned to begin April 25th. Please contact me via email email@example.com or via phone (513-678-7692) if you have any questions, or to confirm that I have your contact information correct.
We post weather cancellations on our GCRCC Instruction Facebook page.

RC 101 Development Page
This page is to test methods of providing information about our instruction program for building and maintaining RC airplanes. It is intended to complement with our Instruction program that teachs how to fly RC airplanes.
RC 101 for Saturday December 17 will be held at Randy Adams' house from 9am until 12 noon. His address is 320 Gregorian Drive, Fairfield Ohio.
Randy and Chuck will cover Monokote application and other fabric coverings. There will also be a discussion on making these coverings paintable. Future topics will include application techniques like spraying and brushing and fiberglass application over balsa as a painting surface. Members will also bring questions about their current builds.
RC 101 encourages our members with completed airplanes or in-process builds to bring them to the meeting and discuss with our RC 101 members. We are all interested in learning about different model types, names and construction techniques.
As always Randy and Chuck are available to provide answers to any build questions or operational questions.
Each week I will send out the next week's topic and location. We are also going to have RC 101 meetings on some weeknights throughout the building season. We welcome any members who may have a topic and location they would like to lead. Please let me know to get you on our schedule.
Hope to see you Saturday,
Greg Rolls 513-706-3869
