Welcome to the Official website of the Rock Valley R/C Flyers Club in Rockford, IL  We are an AMA Gold Leader Club!  Please look around and join us at our monthly club meetings or out at our field, both of which are always open to the public and prospective members!  Spectators are always free(Well, sometimes we may ask for a donation for a local charity, and donations to our club are always welcome!!)

See the Membership page for the 2015 fee structure for the Park District and new links for the forms.  The membership approved a $10.00 dues increase for 2016, which will be reflected on the membership page shortly.  Check the Membership Page for when the new fee structure and the updated forms are available.

Any of the blue words on the pages are links to either the website page referenced or other websites.

The next club meeting will be on April 6, 2016 at the Flying Field, but check back here often to see any announcements about meetings being called or info referenced in club emails!!

Attention:  BOLO (For those of you not related to Law enforcement or don't watch the cop shows 'Be On The Lookout')

Please be on the lookout for a non-flier selling rc plane parts. Someone stole the fuselage for Dave Barcus's Aeroworks extra 260 120 3d out of his trailer. They left the wings.
If they part it out the parts could include:
DA120, canisters, 3 blade Mejlick prop, tru-turn spinner, Futaba 14 channel receiver, JR8711 servos with aluminum arms.
