07 Sep, 19:23 Marty: Zoom tonight? No email. Hmm.
20 Aug, 15:06 Marty: Tonight is TENT night out at Pratt's-Wayne, folks. I'll bring the large Apprentice for training.
20 Aug, 15:05 Marty: Nah. You can leave packs charged up for a few weeks without damage, but if you expect them to not be used for longer than a month then certainly, discharge to storage level (3.8-3.9V per cell).
24 Jul, 21:03 Bob Vance: So, to sum things up: If you charged up the packs and do not get to use them the very same day, putting them back to storage voltage immediately is better than even leaving the packs fully charged for only a single day.
13 Jul, 12:57 Marty: New hosting service for our site, folks. There may be some tuning issues. Please be patient.
A Reminder from the DuPage FPD

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.
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.
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 email@example.com . 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!
