Park Scale Models – Drake Floatplane

Every winter the Minnesota Area Radio Controlled Electric Enthusiasts (MARCEE) is able to secure some indoor flying time at the Metrodome in Minneapolis.  I went up for a day of flying and had a good time.  One of the main things I wanted to do was to fly a new plane I picked up from http://www.parkscalemodels.com  The Drake is a micro float plane design and I had recently finished it.  Flying it in the calm and relative warmth of the Metrodome was much more inviting then the cold outside of late December in Minnesota.  The flight went great and I was able to get Chris to run the camera for me.

    The MARCEE club secures a few days each winter for this. It started as free flight only but then they opened it up to electric RC. Nothing too fast or heavy. They want to keep the risk low. It’s been great over the years and hopefully stays that way for a while.
