Market Harborough, Leicestershire, United Kingdom


We are a small, friendly, informal, model flying club situated just outside Market Harborough.

The origin of the Leicester Area Radio Control Society (LARCS) goes back to the 1950s when the late Geoff Franklyn and several modelling enthusiasts formed a group that initially used a number of local WW2 airfields. In 1962, they decided to form an official club and settled in our present location.

Because of proposed land development, in 2002 the club moved just a few hundred yards to a new, much larger field. We now have a mown area of just under 3 acres which makes our site quite special.

Gumley first, too busy. Larcs for a bit until it was time to get some lunch and get down to MK. It turned out to be a really nice session with the Daves. First a bit of work on SM for next year and then some rolling stuff.
Home for the F1 and then started putting some music together for next year's FTM.

Up early to take Alan fixed wing flying, then to Gumley for him to check the club out. Home for lunch and back to Larcs. Was supposed to go to the Nats but couldn't face an hour in the car with such decent weather. Went back to Gumley instead and flew until sundown. Home for some of the F1 and the chaos of some visiting friends and their kids.
The heli is starting to sound a bit ragged and the main gear teeth look a bit thin. One more day of flying and I need to start replacing parts.

Larcs first to get some heli flights in before 9 o'clock. Then to Gumley for gala day and some fixed wing flying. Was hoping to get some of the BBQ and then go to MK, but the food was taking too long so I ended up going without.
A nice session at MK with Mike and the 2 Daves. I finished flying at 6 because of the dark skies, but stayed another hour to fly the Dave's helis and fiddle with their settings.

Up early at Larcs. Was intending to stay a while but the genny died and refused to start again. Went to Gumley for a couple of hours before it got too busy. Went through to MK and had a great afternoon. It was pretty windy, but I think I'm getting better and the wind doesn't seem to affect me as much.
Sold a PSU and charger to David, so I need to order a 2nd iCharger.

Rain forecast for the afternoon so I got down to Larcs at 7. Lovely blue skies and warm enough. Cleaned the shed out a bit between flights. Once we get rid of the cobwebs and rubbish, it'll be a decent place to hide from the elements.
The weather seemed to hold, so after lunch I went to Gumley until the wind got too strong.
A pretty good day of flying considering the forecast was so bad.

Not a very good forecast so decided to stay local. Went to Larcs for an early session before meeting Gary at Gumley. Had a great morning flying with him and the usual fixie group. He managed to smoke a Turnigy pack while putting it into the Logo. Never seen one go up like that before.
Eventually the rain arrived and we called it a day.

A morning of practice on my own at Larcs. Took a lunch break and then went back for more. Eventually had enough so went to Gumley for some company. It's actually starting to get busy there on a Saturday now. Flew until the wind picked up and the clouds came over.
