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.
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!
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.
Update: The April 17th Stealth Sqdn meet is moved to Sunday April 18. Same location, Same Time, same events (see Flyer
Season opener is the April 18 meet at Woodsom Farm in Amesbury MA.
This is due to predicted poor weather conditions on Saturday 17th. And better weather predicted on Sunday 18th.
Mass Launch events will be moved up and begin at 10:30 and hopefully wrap up by 12:30 when Scale judging will begin. The ML schedule will be as follows WW1, Thompson, Greve, and WW2 all run consecutively.
Rubber-powered Free Flight Models Only
Stealth Sqdn is a rubber FF club and we welcome all who want to try this hobby. Flying rockets, drones, choppers and fixed wing RC is not permitted.

Enter your FAC Dime Scale model!
Well gang, things are just not looking good for our indoor flying season this year. Given that, we’re going to re-run our virtual Dime Scale Postal event this winter. We had lots of flying and good light-hearted competition last year so let’s do it again.
Remember, anyone can enter and win whether you’re a Stealth Squadron member or not. Yes, there’s been some overzealous talk of Dimer duels, but we know this is for fun. It’s all about getting your model and moniker on the tallyboard (see Postal Page).
The Contest starts on New Year’s Day Jan 1, 2021 and ends on St. Patrick’s Day March 17, 2021. All flights are to be made outdoors and there will be a Temperature bonus like last year. That’s right, the colder the day you fly – the more bonus added to your flight time! Bonus points for your model will be added as well, per the official FAC Dime Scale rules.
Check the latest Results on the Postal Contest page – we’ll post the top 20 times submitted. Rules and online Timesheet Form can be found on that page. Look for the Timesheet Form at the bottom of the sidebar throughout this site as well.
Kick off this new decade with style and submit a flight. Have fun with it. We’ll post photos or videos of your model or flight on the Stealth Sqdn site too. Just send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
