The River City Radio Controllers was formed in the early 1970’s and operate from “Bill Fluke Field” on the western edge of E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Kentucky. The club is currently comprised of approximately 150 radio control pilots who are licensed by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA).
Throughout the year, the club has fun-fly events, such as Summer Night Fly, Warbird Fun Fly, etc. The flying field is available to RCRC members 7 days a week from dawn (10:00 am for gas planes) until dark (weather permitting).
Pilots fly helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. While most fly electric, we do have some old school glow fuel and gasoline motors. There are nearly as many different models of radio controlled planes as there are full-scale planes. Some of the more popular aircraft include WWI and WWII-scale models, civilian scale, aerobatic scale, aerobatic 3D (extreme aerobatic), electric ducted fan jets (no gas turbines allowed), helicopters, and extreme flight 3D helicopters.
