Exceed 100mph with the ultra-fast Sidewinder. Designed for fast FPV flight, the aircraft arrives fully-built with pre-installed electronics and navigational lights.
Choose between multiple colored decals, including red, yellow, green and silver. Each of these colors has a matching tail light to help personalize your wing.
The aircraft features separate compartments for the motor and ESC to help reduce electronic interference. Made of EPO foam, the one-piece construction and full-length carbon rods inside the wing provide a fast stable platform. The Durafly Sidewinder has been designed with an in-built dummy antenna to balance out the aircraft once your working antenna is attached. The sidewinder includes differently sized landing skids which can be swapped out depending on the landing terrain.
The Sidewinder is a real speed machine for those willing to chase the thrill.

With its 100” span wing, the Vista Grande EP sailplane handles well in wind and responds gently to control input. Bold stripes on the wing bottom aid in following orientation. Electric power means no hi-start, tow plane, or large launch area are needed. You can climb to soaring altitude quickly, coast on the thermals, come down, and do it all again — without recharging. Features include a factory-covered all-wood airframe; 3-piece, bolt-on wing; factory-hinged rudder and elevator; and center wing section spoiler. A brushless motor, ESC, and folding propeller are all included.

By JShumate in Model Airplane NewsWhen it comes to indoor RC, the last thing you would expect is the giant Antonov AN-255 cargo plane. Well, this impressive AN-225 model, is a very scale “micro” version that easily flies in indoor venues! Made of Depron, the model is powered by six Hobbico micro ducted-fan units with two, 2S 1000mAh batteries. Built and piloted by Daniel Hör, it’s seen here flying at the Intermodellbau Fair in Dortmund, Germany. We can only hope Daniel will build a micro scale Buran spaceplane so that his Antonov can carry to altitude!

Join CCRCC at the airfield and learn to fly RC airplanes. Our instructors have trained many new pilots to fly on their own using the buddy box system and flight simulators where you are free from the burden and fear of crashing an airplane.
Every Thursday beginning May 17th (weather permitting) at 5:00PM at our airfield at 3616 Bloomington Rd, Champaign
NOTE - While it is our intention that all students be able to get multiple flights in during each training session, this is also a fluid event based on the availability of instructors on any given week, the amount of students on any given week, and dependent on aircraft not having any flight issues.
For weather updates casuing possible cancellation of that weeks training please check our Facebook page about 45 minutes before the scheduled start time https://www.facebook.com/ChampaignCountyRcClub/
