2019 Paper Airplane Contest and Indoor Flight Display


Here is an opportunity to learn about the skills, engineering and technology of small Radio-Controlled model aircraft and to observe actual flying demonstrations at an indoor venue.

Small Lithium-Polymer batteries and highly integrated electronic circuits have made it possible to power and control small model aircraft with propellers driven by miniature electric motors.

This month, our Branch Meeting will be at the indoor soccer facility of Carleton University’s Field House which provides the perfect environment to fly such delicate Radio-Controlled model aircraft and helicopters.  The meeting will consist of a short “show and tell” talk that will explain the technology used by these models, with attendees gathered around our speaker on this indoor soccer field.  Our speaker and his model aircraft colleagues will have a number of these models on hand for inspection.  Then it will be time to see some flight demonstrations on the field.  The wing spans of these models range from 20 to 60 cm, so it is quite impressive to see such a model perform take-offs and landings along with simple aerobatics.


Friday Oct 4 from 6-8 pm Carleton Fieldhouse

An open paper airplane contest will start at 6pm followed by the demos at 645
