What is the M.A.R.K.S. Club?

M.A.R.K.S. stands for Miniature Aircraft Radio Kontrol Society (AMA Charter 133) - Behind this name there is an active RC Model club that is located in the San Bernardino - Redlands - Highland area in Southern California. Currently we have one main flying field but also some additional places where we fly our models, ranging from electric slow fliers, scale and IMAC planes, pylon racers, over helicopters and 3D planes to turbine powered jets.

The "Photo of the Moment" is a new section on our webpage. - If you have encountered something special in context with your club activities send an image with some text to our webadmin and we will post it as quickly as possible. The goal is to have a new picture here every few days. Anything club or RC flying related goes!
Summer Time!

6/24/2013 - Jeff Lawver took this picture while on vacation on a beach in SoCal.
"I was just relaxing at the beach during a recent camping trip when I happened to remember that my EasyStar was in the back seat of my truck. I grabbed it plugged it in and off I went into the sunset. What a life!" Jeff
