Come Fly Radio Control Aircraft With Us!

February Meeting Date Moved

Due to a library scheduling conflict we have to move our meeting to Wednesday, 14 Feb. Yes, folks -- that's Valentine's Day. So drag your sweetheart out to a romantic evening talking model airplanes with R/C nerds!

And Don't Forget Swap 'Til You Drop!

The Midwest's premier R/C swap meet is about to happen, ladies and gents. Get ready for Swap 'Til You Drop 2018! We're going to need volunteers for various tasks including Friday afternoon setup, Saturday vendor assistance and door security, and Saturday knockdown. See Hector if you can help with any of these jobs.

Indoor Flying Season Has Ended

NightHawk indoor flying at White Pines Golf Dome has ended for the season. They do have multirotor flying and racing out there, however. If you are interested in that contact the dome for more info.

Suburban R/C Barnstormers, Inc. (SRCB) is an AMA (Chapter 640) chartered model aviation club with a deep history. Our emphasis is on radio-controlled aircraft of all types and sizes — from indoor flight to giant scale; fixed wing, helicopters, and multirotors; scratch built and Ready-To-Fly. We fly 'em all!

SRCB have been bringing radio control model aircraft hobbyists together in northeastern Illinois, mainly suburban Chicago, for many years. Our members participate in regular monthly meetings and club flying events plus a variety of special activities throughout the year. We range in age and modeling experience from toddler through elderly and from complete beginners through advanced model designers, builders, and pilots. Whatever your model aircraft interests or skill level, you'll find a welcome home at SRCB.

You can find us flying year 'round at Pratt's Wayne Model Flight Field in Bartlett.

Just getting into the hobby and need some help or advice? Our members are very friendly and are always willing to lend a helping hand. We even have instructors that can teach you to fly! Check out our Contact Us page for the instructor's email address.


Some of our regular activities include the following:

...and much more. Come join us at an upcoming meeting or other event to see what we're about.

Fly With a Like-Minded Crowd

SRCB members design, build, and fly fuel and electric airplanes and helicopters of all sizes, shapes, and description. We have members who stick with Ready-To-Fly models and members who scratch build their own planes all the way down to the landing gear struts. No matter what your interest is in R/C model aviation you'll find somebody who shares your passion at SRCB.

Open To Anyone

SRCB welcomes anyone interested in R/C aviation to join us (AMA membership required to fly). You may have flown control line or free flight as a kid. You may be discovering R/C for the first time. You may not even own any aircraft, but are just interested in the hobby. Come talk to us and see if SRCB is the place for you.

To join our club you can print up and mail in the handy online membership application. For more information you can email us at . Or if you prefer you can contact someone on our contacts list to get information on a specific topic. We look forward to seeing you and talking R/C aircraft!
