    Our flying field is the Former Champaign Municipal Landfill which was operated as a municipal solid waste landfill from approximately 1955 to 1975. As an AMA chartered Club our goal is to provide a forum for club members to exchange ideas and benefit from each others experiences with the hobby of building and the sport of flying radio controlled model aircraft. We are committed to promoting the enjoyment of safe R/C flying in accordance with AMA and Champaign County Radio Control Club rules and guidelines.

      Inspiring readers since 1929, Model Airplane News was there right at the beginning. It was 1929 and during the golden age of flying when the founder, George C. Johnson, launched the magazine. This era was one that inspired adventure. Higher, faster, farther—record-setting pilots with their radical new airplanes were the heroes for several generations of young people. And Model Airplane News was the information pipeline that helped bring so many people into the new field of model flight.
      According to CEO Louis DeFrancesco, “Very few magazine brands can boast this success and longevity. We are proud of our amazing history and talented team, and we will continue to drive the RC airplane market and excite new generations of enthusiasts into the 21st century.”

A changing media landscape has given Model Airplane News the opportunity to engage readers with high-quality content anytime, anywhere through digital, social, and print channels.

      If you’re ready for a unique RC flying experience, the Rage X-Fly VTOL is the aircraft for you. In addition to typical 4-channel drone control, the X-Fly is capable of high alpha flight like an aircraft thanks to software that allows pilots to fly at either 20- or 35-degree angles of attack. It also includes features like one-touch takeoff and landing, altitude hold, and dual rates that allow you to fly with control speed that matches your skill level.

      Plus, the included LiPo battery provides plenty of power and flight times of over 5 minutes. The X-Fly not only has a futuristic design with bright, attractive graphics — it’s made of durable EPP foam and is equipped with powerful LEDs that provide great visibility, day or night.
      The X-Fly VTOL comes factory-assembled with a 2.4GHz 4-channel transmitter, a 250mAh 1-cell LiPo, and a convenient USB charger and spare propellers. Watch for a Flight Test in the February issue of MAN.

      This 1/4-scale Fokker E.V., designed by David Johnson (plan no. X0305A), is a great project for anyone who wants a WW I fighter but doesn’t want the hassle of building two wings. Using conventional balsa, spruce and plywood construction, the Flying Razor has an 84 inch span and was designed for a Zenoah G-38 for power. The parasol wing is fully sheeted and it is built up-side down over the plans to make the dihedral and wingtip washout easy to do. The model uses Williams Brothers, scale vintage wheels and machine guns and the 1/4-scale Fokker cowl is available from Arizona Model Aircrafters. In the air the Fokker E.V. handles like an advanced trainer
