Hello Grassfield Flyers,

Thanks for welcoming me on Sunday April 9th on your Airfield. It were enjoyable few hours with Bill, Al and all others. It was so nice you let me try a few rounds. As all of you, I am also an RC-enthousiast, and it is always great to meet up with other RC-enthousiasts. I live in the Netherlands, close to the German border, and our RC club is just across the border on German territory.
Our RC club is called Modellfluggruppe Selfkant, MFG-Selfkant. Our website is http://www.mfg-selfkant.de. The website is in German. Have fun to check it out, the pictures are in the universal language.
It was a pity I could not come to your builders day last Friday. I was in the plane back to the Netherlands. Maybe next time…
Best regards, Raymond van Mulken.

Hi!

I live in Champlin and while I am driving on 169 I noticed people flying planes very often! So I finally decided to stop by and see what it was all about. I would like some more information about what this club is, and how I can get involved! I have a friend that is very interested in airplanes and one day wants to be a pilot. I think that he would love to fly around with you guys. How would he be able to do something like that? He doesn’t have his own airplane to fly, would he need his own? Also, I was looking into purchasing an airplane for him! Do you guys sell some? Or do you have any good sources that I can go to to get a good quality airplane?

Thank you,
Carlynn

Hi,

I attended the Builders Show this year and am trying to remember the name of the elderly gentleman who won a prize for his plane, which will be featured on your membership card next year. He was entry #25 and his plane was a Bellanca C.F.. Can you share his name with me?

Thank you,
Pam

Hi

I am considering being a member of the Grassfield R/C club. I was thinking that I could go over and fly at the field after work. i own a business in Maple Grove. I also have a lot of model airplane and parts i would like to donate to the cub. I contacted you perhaps 3 month ago and had a garage sale. Still a lot left that I would never need.
I started to fly on a frozen lake this winter, but would like a place to fly in the summer.
What would it take to become a member?

Best regards

Hi- My name is Dan Seeman and my father-in-law, Bud Locher, was an avid R/C airplane builder and flyer. Sadly, he passed away a few months ago so we are having an auction at his cabin near Brainerd, MN on Sunday, July 16 starting at 11am. Lots of airplanes, engines, tools and parts.

Bud loved building and flying R/C airplanes and he took great pride in his planes, his tools and his remote control gear. Bud was a member of the Paul Bunyan R/C Flyers in Brainerd.

Here’s a link to the auction website which has all of the information. http://www.midwestauctions.com/mohs/_private/index.html

Here are some photos of the planes he built and flew. If you could pass this along to the club I would appreciate it. If anyone has questions they can email me at dan.seeman@mchsi.com or call me at 612-803-2812. Thank you!

What time will you be demonstrating on July 15th at field in Brooklyn Park?

Hello,

I am hoping someone in your club can point me in the right direction. My father-in-law has been a avid flyer for more then 50 years. During this time he has acquired 1,000s of aircraft parts including engines, props, gas tanks and the planes themselves. Anyway, he is getting up there in age and is now in a nursing home. We are to the point where we now need to empty the house so we can sell it but we have all this RC model aircraft stuff we need to sell. Is there a place in the twin cities area where I can sell some of these items. Below are 3 of the never touch aircraft kits I brought back this weekend to try to sell them.

– Top Flight “The Taurus” Kit. Wingspan 70 in, Length 53 in, Engine size .35 to .45, For multi-channel radio control. The box says “The model that is making R/C history. The winner of the 1962 nationals. Includes steerable nose gear.” Not assembled and in original box.

– Carl Goldberg Model “SR Falcon” Kit. Wingspan 70 in, Length 53 in, Engine size .35 to .45. Not assembled and in original box.

– Midwest Product Company “New Sky Squire” Kit. Wingspan 57 in, Length 42 in, Engine size .19 to .46. Not assembled and in original box.

Obviously there is much more stuff we need to go through and I would appreciate if anyone can point us in the right direction to sell these items. Please call me at 612-968-0769 with any advice or if anyone is interested in buying.

Thank you,

Joe Barrett

I have am newer than an newcomer….I’m still trying to decide if this is something I want to seriously pursue. I have a lot of questions and would just like to watch newcomers fly their planes. Is every Tuesday just for beginners? When is the best time to stop by to have the best opportunity to see some action and bend someone’s ear? And is this at the Crystal Airport? I don’t see an address anywhere on your website, but I may have missed it.

Thank you.
