October meet moved to October 10

October meet moved to Sunday 10/10!

View the updated Contest Flyer with directions & contacts HERE.

Please adjust your schedule accordingly so you can attend.

Events are unchanged – just the day of the meet has been moved from Saturday October 9 to Sunday October 10.

The reason for the change is a double-booking of the Woodsom Farm field.   The brass hats felt it best to just push our meet to Sunday.  Easy fix.

We’re down to the last meets of the 2021 Outdoor Season.   Don’t miss this opportunity.

Again, view the updated Contest Flyer HERE.

See you on the flightline!

An $8 entry fee (free for Under 21!) and you’ll fly with folks that go back to the beginning of the club that re-energized traditional Free Flight rubber modeling. 

You can’t beat that.

Fly at beautiful WoodSom Farm!

Flyer with Directions HERE

Hey gang!,  September is here and Fall is in the air.  This is a beautiful time to fly FF and the forecast is looking up for next weekend.   So get those models ready now and plan to join us at Woodsom Farm on Saturday Sept 11.

The field has been recently hayed making it  much easier to chase high flying model airplanes.

Check the events roster above.  Something to fly for everyone.  Don’t forget to bring your Goodyear Racer if you’ve got one. 

New folks are always welcome.  Bring a Free Flight rubber (or electric) model airplane, or just come along to check out the action.  As always, experienced flyers will be on hand to help you with any flight trimming or modeling questions. 

See you there Skyster!

 

Mid-Summer Meet in Ipswich Saturday 7/24

Fly at the Pony Express Field in Ipswich

Flyer with Directions HERE

Hey gang!, don’t forget the free flight rubber powered model meet tomorrow (Saturday July 24, 2021)  at the Pony Express Field in Ipswich, MA!  This is a new flying field on Boston’s North Shore. 

The Pony Express Field in Ipswich MA is a well maintained grass field much easier to chase on than Woodsom Farm which will be tall hay in the summer months.

Pony Express is a smaller site than Woodsom Farm and flyers may need to take steps (smaller rubber motors and/or fewer winder turns) to keep models on the field.  

Smaller site meets are often big fun!

A few seasons back, we had a summertime meet on the Collins Foundation airstrip in Stow, MA and that was a really fun event.  Same with the rubber FF meets at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. 

So come on out and fly your models on the new Pony Express Field in beautiful Ipswich, MA.  As always, experienced flyers will be on hand to help you with any flight trimming or modeling questions. 

See you there Skyster!

 

June 26 Ipswich Meet Cancelled!

Next meet on July 24 in Ipswich

The Pony Express Field meet tomorrow is cancelled due to the  high winds forecast. 

The Sunday back up date is no better and has been cancelled as well.

15mph+ winds are just too much, especially given the field is not free.

So, let’s use the time to get ready for the Stealth Squadron Mid Summer Meet, Ipswich MA  on Saturday, July 24, 2021

See you there Skyster!

The Scourge of the Witch Doctors

Another ripping Jack Sharpe Mystery from the author of “The Cursed Squadron”

A Jack Sharpe Mystery


G-2 was facing a menace that threatened its very existence: Mysterious ships, piloted by witch-doctors that could shoot down a man without a single bullet. Jack Sharpe knew something was amiss – and it had something to do with those long-range Gothas!

August 21 Meet back at Woodsom

Well gang, the Pony Express meet in Ipswich on July 24 was a big success.  We had lots of fun flying on the new field and Sean R won his first Kanone in the hotly contested Embryo Endurance event.  We hope to fly at Pony Express again next year.

But hey, the next Stealth outdoor meet on August 21 is back at the big field at Woodsom Farm in Amesbury.  Check out the Event Flyer (links above) as the event roster has been changed up a bit. 

Golden Age and Modern Civil are being combined so you can fly just about any scale civilian model airplane in this event. 

Goodyear Mass Launch is also being added.  This is for peanut scale models of Goodyear and Formula 1 midget racers.  Rich Z handed out a good selection of model plans at Pony Express – contact him if you want a plan.  We’ll fly this event again in September if you need more time to complete your model. 

As always, experienced flyers will be on hand to help you with any flight trimming or modeling questions. 

See you on the flightline at Woodsom Farm skyster!

new events for May Meet!

May outdoor free flight model airplane meets can be among the best – still cool but warming weather, tall but not too tall grass, etc.  We hope you’ll join us for another great day out on Woodsom Farm!

The event roster has been shaken up a bit too.  We’ll be flying Dime Scale, OT Fuselage, Goodyear Mass Launch and the National Air Races in addition to old standbys FAC Scale, Peanut and Embryo Endurance.  So expect to be seeing some new models flying. 

Check out the Flying Aces Club rulebook, or use the Contact Us form on this site if any questions.

We continue to use COVID safety protocols on the field so bring your mask.    Bring your rubber-powered free flight models too and we’ll find an event you can fly in.

See you on May 15 at the Woodsom Farm field!

Postal Dimer ends March 17

Hey gang.  Time is running out!  Get your dime scale model in the air and submit an online timesheet (sidebar). 

That’s right – 9 flying days left before the postal dime contest ends on St Patrick’s Day (Mar 17, 2021). 

There has to be at least a couple good weather days between now and then.  Don’t miss your opportunity to get on the Tallyboard!

And don’t forget to send a pic or vid of your model in action or at rest.  We’ll post it here for all to see. 

Light breezes and warm thermals –

Zounds!  Has that ghastly Hun Hanz from The Cursed Squadron survived, taken a pseudo-name and commandeered this cute little Swiss Franc (top left) for his dastardly act?

How can such an innocent craft – a reindeer on its sides no less – be used as a tool for mayhem? 

Because that’s what this has become.  The taunt from Trailing Edge himself at the bottom of this post confirms as much. 

He even said the Tom Brady thing…  Of course, he wouldn’t sign Hanz. 

If ever there was a need for Jack Sharpe on the case, this is it!

           

                          *   *   *

Sacre Bleau!  Like a vagabond on a midnight train, a mystery flyer named Trailing Edge has slipped into our little Postal Contest.

He is the new Wing Commander – and his lead seems insurmountable.   Oh my!

Three Dimers, three flights, three top positions on the Tallyboard.  Even the Bovid Army at Rose James Field couldn’t stop him.

OK now.  We know this event is for fun…sort of like the Drew Carey show where the points don’t matter.  It’s about the show.

BUT…. the Sqdn Commander’s cap spirited away to a place that’s for Lovers?  Pffffftttt!

So, let it snow, let it freeze.  Let the Bonus rise and our models rise further.  It’s not over til it’s over.  Get out there gang.

Send pics & vids of your winter flying adventures to admin@stealthsquadron-fac49.com and we’ll put them up here.
