          We are Clacton Radio Control Model Club affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) which is the national body responsible for managing the hobby of remote control model flying.

             We fly remote control model aircraft, gliders and helicopters  from our club field located in Kirby-Le-Soken near to Clacton on Sea, Essex. 

          The club has a number of instructors who will help newcomers to the hobby learn to fly. The club also has its own BMFA examiner who will conduct tests for BMFA certificates.

        We fly a wide variety of models powered by electric or internal combustion engines. However gas turbine jets are not allowed at the site.

       The club holds meetings once a month during the winter months.
