President’s Message-October 2012

in

Upcoming Election for the MAR/C Board of Directors.  This year we will vote to fill five Board positions which become vacant in 2013. Two of these positions will become vacant due to the expiration of the normal three year term for current Board members. Three other positions will become vacant as a result of appointments made by the Board to fill resignations which occurred in 2012. These three positions must stand for election at year-end, in accordance with our By-Laws.

Pre-flight and Post-flight Checks

in

Always check the direction of control surfaces before flying. It is very difficult to fly with the elevator or rudder or ailerons reversed. You say how can that happen?

   A. Ailerons plugged into the opposite channel.

   B. The most common now is not changing the model in the transmitter to match the model being flown.

Covering Exchange

in

If you have covering material (Monokote, UltraCote, etc.) that you would like to buy, sell or swap, use the new Covering Exchange category in the Forum.

Respect the Propeller

in

One of the most dangerous items in our hobby is the propeller. When it is turning it can do terrible damage. Flesh and bone is no match for it.

 

The other day at the field I was amazed at how some modelers will reach over the propeller to plug in the battery on their electric aircraft. A transmitter or receiver that is on can cause the unintentional start up of the motor.

 

2012 MAR/C Pilot Certification Requirements for new and returning members.

in

With the increase of new members and those returning from being away for awhile, the board of directors is asking that all members maintain proficient flight skills that meet or exceed the AMA and the Marymoor RC Club conditions for flight safety. That means it is mandatory that every club member must have a firm knowledge of AMA and MAR/C rules and regulations. Also they must know where to find them and how to adhere to these flight safety requirements while they are operating and flying on our field.

ELECTRIC MODEL SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS

in

A recent injury that occurred at the field highlights the need to observe specific safety precautions when flying electrics.  The flyer was attempting to disconnect the motor battery when he accidently bumped the throttle stick on the transmitter.  The motor started and the prop cut his hand and arm.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, NOVEMBER 2011, OVER FLYING THE FIELD BOUNDARIES

in

You are probably as tired of hearing about this subject as I am writing to you about it. However, we are once again receiving complaints of over flights of the condominiums to the East of the field. By this,  I mean the actual flight of model airplanes over the residence area. This means that the East Lake Sammamish Parkway is being over flown, as well. The impact of an R/C model incident in these locations would be catastrophic. We are continually made aware of the closure of fields in the areas surrounding Seattle. We are not immune to similar action.
