Welcome to our website ,
Nepean club members have been flying from our Tootgarook site for
over 30 years and we typically have a membership of around 65.
Saturday is our most popular day but many members take
advantage of good weather to fly during the week.
We are on a disused tip site nestled up near swamp land, it may not
sound picturesque but we think it scrubs up nicely. The runways in
relation to the sun rising and setting give you good visuals of your
plane. You can pretty much always count on a breeze or wind, it's
the geographical location they tell me.
Types of models flown by members vary greatly, fixed wing is the
predominate type and scale is the most popular. Aerobatics also
gets a mention and the odd glider can be seen from time to time.
We have Electric, Glow and Petrol engines mixing it up giving a
good cross section of the hobby/sport.
An instructor will assist new comers getting into the air and help
with any problems along the way. Before buying a plane and
transmitter I would say that it’s best to research your purchase. You
don't have to be a member to ask about suitable beginners plane
