The Crawley Club (CADMAC) was formed in 1960. Today we have about 100 members. All types of models are flown, radio control, free-flight, control-line and indoor.
Club meetings are held weekly on Thursday evenings during the summer on Holy Trinity School field and during the winter on Thursday evenings at the Hazelwick School Sports Hall.
In the winter CADMAC enjoys the use of the Hazelwick School sports hall for a Thursday evening of free-flight and RC flying. We have a full schedule of slots to accommodate all types of models in a safe fashion.
In the summer Club meetings are held every Thursday evening on Holy Trinity School field (pictured below). Access to the school is via Buckswood Drive, turning into Woburn Road and then left through the school entrance and into the car park.
The majority of members have been aeromodellers for many years, so the club has a vast store of knowledge. We welcome new members, who can be assured of friendly advice and assistance.
Jack Darby has retired as Editor of the Turbulator, so many thanks to him for doing a great job over many years.
Have we a talented individual to take over from Jack? Contact any committee member if interested.
Until a new editor steps forward the Turbulator will be put on hold, previous issues can be found on the Turbulator Archive page
The club has a facebook group, which can be used to advertise the club, by swapping pictures and stories until someone volunteers to take over editing the Turbulator.
Anyone can see the group, but you'll need to click the 'join' button (and be approved) before you can post.
The club's email list has moved from YahooGroups to Groups.io. This is because many people were having problems subscribing to the old list and it is no longer possible to add them directly. All existing subscriptions have been transferred but there are only 89 people on the list. Anyone not on the list can subscribe at cadmac.groups.io
