Club Meetings


Members, It's been decided that the October Meeting will be cancelled due to a Hurricane. It looks like a bad one and some of us may need some time to pick up the pieces. What's most important is that all of us remain safe. The next meeting will be in November.


Meetings are held at the field on the first Saturday of each month (Could be changed by board request) at 10:00 A M with the exception of June, July, and August. Members will be notified by email of any changes to this schedule.

Scheduled Meetings for 2022:


January, 8 | February, 5 | March, 19 | April, 9 | May, 7 | September, 3 | October, 1 | November, 5 | December, 3

Our Mascot

The Hernando County Radio Control Club otherwise known as HCRCC was first formed in 1980. We are an AMA sanctioned club.

Our primary goal is to help promote the advancement of aeronautics as it relates to model radio control aircraft. We offer guidance in the building and flying of R/C model aircraft.

We also have instructors who will help teach and guide those who have an interest in the hobby but have little or no previous experience with radio control as it relates to flying.
Along with AMA we have a pilot program that is geared to teaching the novice pilot in learning the skills necessary to become a qualified model aircraft pilot.

Our RC plane runway is located in a farmer's field that we share with cattle and a few horses. Our field is now a grass area. It is inside a 200 by 400 feet and is totally fenced, and more importantly, cattle free! It has an open shelter and safety fences, which have been erected by and for the members.

At the present time our members for the most part fly fixed wing aircraft although we have some members who fly helicopters on occasion. We have quite a few members who not only fly with gas and glo but also fly electric.

INDOOR FLYING IMAGES

"INDOOR FLYING FUN"
There's a small group of us who enjoy small planes that are meant to be flown indoors. Planes that fall into this category include, small drones, helicopters, rubber powered stick and tissue types, and others. We are not a club, but we adhere to the safety standards of the Academy of Model Aeronautics of which we all are members.

We meet and fly at the Timber Pines' Performing Art Center (PAC) nearly every month. For information about flying with us, contact Don Ogren (352-428-9171 or 352-666-2901).
