    Ep 72 - Omahawks R/C Club

    First established in 1953, The Omahawks is the largest RC club in the greater Omaha metropolitan area. Their home is Hawk Field, a premier flying site located at Standing Bear Lake Park, and it features a 500 x 40 foot paved runway surrounded by both grass and pavement pit areas, plenty of room to set up tents and a great pavilion for food and shade. And because the park is quite large and popular, the Omahawks are always welcoming visitors to come and watch the fun from their permanent bleachers. The Omahawks have been an AMA Gold Leader Club since 2011, and for the past 41 years, they have hosted a Labor Day Air Show to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, of which they’ve donated nearly $100,000 since it began. We congratulate the Omahawks of Omaha, Nebraska for being named the March 2021 Club of the Month.

You only missed one thing

When you did your Podcast write up, you missed the FreeFallRC Podcast who have been around since 2015 and have over 250 episodes. Nevermind the Heli Heads, and TellARotor who put out episodes at least once a month (if not more)
