Issue #35-Need A New Hobby… Learn to Fly RC Airplanes At Willie McCool Park (Located in North Las Vegas)



Are you getting bored of the same old hobbies? Well we have the right one for you! Flying RC planes, helicopters and other types of radio control aircrafts has become a hugely popular pastime in the recent years.

It has never been easier and more affordable to get started! Circles Magazine met with Don Campbell to interview about the park and everything else you need to know when flying. He told us “it is hard to fly RC airplanes, they are just like the real thing but just on a smaller scale, they are also slow, and depend on the type of airplane.” They run about 200 miles an hour. some prices vary from $200.75 to $409.95. Most people buy finished or build and fly them around.

The limitations of RC planes have been compared to real airplanes such as not responding. There are a few rules when flying: Don’t hurt anybody, and no combat flying, (combat flying means the flying of any model aircraft in such a manner as to interfere with another model aircraft that can cause damage to each other). A yearly pass must be purchased to utilize the model airplane flying field at Willie McCool Regional Park. A pass can be purchased at the Neighborhood Recreation Center, 1638 North Bruce Street, North Las Vegas. For more information, Call; (702) 633-1600.
