The morning included a ground school session where they learned the basics of flight and how the planes were remotely controlled in the air by the transmitter. After ground school they then had the opportunity to actually fly the planes themselves with an instructor through the use of a buddy box system. This allows the student to be given complete control of the plane on their own transmitter by the instructor. The training session was followed by a few demonstration flights of a warbird and acrobatic plane by club members.

The radio control model airplane club flies at Poplar Creek Model Airplane Field on Shoe Factory Road in Hoffman Estates and meets on the first Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. at The Barn in Schaumburg. People of all ages are welcome at meetings or at the flying field. For information, go to www.trivillagerc.com.
