Wednesday Fun Fly

SASS holds a fun-fly event every wednesday afternoon, Spring through fall, at 60 Acres Park in Redmond WA. We'll be on the south side of the road, you can't miss us! Come out and see what R/C Soaring is all about, meet folks and get a chance to fly. Events are sometimes cancelled due to weather, so be sure to check your e-mail from for the latest updates, or contact the SASS Board for the latest updates. Launch gear will be set up for the active fun-fly events. Wednesday afternoons and evenings are reserved for us all year, for the South Field.

Radian One-Design Thermal Contests

Next Radian Contest

Nothing happening right now, but check back soon!

If you're interested in soaring, a great way to learn is 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. 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!
