Easter Electric Nationals Rally

The Club played host the Electric National Rally over the Easter break, with competitors coming from as far as Brisbane for the four days of competition. Word had spread after the Nationals in January about the facilities that are available at our field in Albury. The organizers of the Electric National Event contacted us regarding the possibility of running this annual event over Easter on the TCMAC site. The clubs management committee decided to approve the use of our facilities . The weather over the four days could not have been better, particularly for the Gliders and Old Timers. In addition to these type of models competitors flew all types of electric powered aircraft from large scale models to helicopters.

A highlight of the weekend was a display by two visiting pilots of some precision helicopter flying. To see a large, electric powered helicopter doing rolling circles with the rotors almost touching the ground attracted a lot of attention.
