12th Annual Ottawa Valley Giant Scale Warm-up

  • Arnprior RC Club 5556 Loggers Way Arnprior, ON, K7S 3G7 Canada (map)

Time to limber up the thumbs and get ready for another great year of Giant Scale RC modelling. Come on out to the Arnprior RC Club for a relaxed day of flying your new or tried-and-true Giant Scale plane. Our 800 foot grass strip field with the sun at your back and sheltered pilot area is the best way to tune up your flying skills or maybe share some helpful tips with others for their first flights. This is a great way for new GS pilots to get started with plenty of helpful veterans on hand.

As always, there will be a BBQ lunch available. Spectators are always welcome. (No admission fee for non-pilots)
