by Christopher Quinn October 13, 2015I was recently nominated for the 2016 Richardson Radio Control Club Vice President. Last week I was voted in by the membership to be Vice President. I will work with all club leadership to consider any changes, improvements or other club concerns. The Vice President coordinates special programs which are presented at meetings.

Youth Leadership Recognition
by Christopher Quinn September 6, 2015In addition to my training activities, I was able to contribute to my club's largest charity event of 2014, the Gary Harvey Memorial Fun Fly. The event required each Richardson Radio Control Club member to approach local businesses for donations. I talked to managers and business owners about the club, the event, and asked for a donation to support the charity. I was able to secure five different donations valued at over $100!
I was recognized for my support of RRCC and District VIII, as a runner-up for the AMA Youth Leadership Award. I appreciate all the support and encouragement from the leaders of District VIII and Richardson Radio Control Club.

by Christopher Quinn September 6, 2015My name is Christopher Quinn and I am a new R/C pilot, flying with the Richardson Radio Control Club.
RRCC requires all new pilots to complete a thorough training course. My training included many different kinds of maneuvers. The training plan includes 10 fundamental requirements such as straight and level flight, circle patterns and maintaining altitude. The plan also includes 14 advanced requirements. For example loops, rolls, Immelmann and touch-and-go landings.
I spent about 12 hours in the air practicing with my trainer, a fellow club member, to complete my pilot training last year. R/C airplane training is challenging and fun. I learned a lot, and I am looking forward to learning more!
Land Slow and Soar High!
