Radian One-Design Thermal Contests

Next Radian Contest

No event found

If you're interested in soaring, there's no better way (and no more fun way!) to learn than to enter a contest. Does that sound scary? Too complicated? The ParkZone Radian makes it easy! Constructed of durable, flexible foam, the Radian has a 2-meter wingspan and uses a motor and propeller for launching. No winches or high starts are needed. Just plug in the batteries and go.

We hold contests for stock radians so the contest is all about skill. Paul Bower hosts the contests and they are guaranteed to be fun and educational. There's even a joke contest, and most days lunch is avaialable at the field. Come join us!
