Future Plans

You may have noticed that there haven’t been many updates in a while. We’ve been winding down the events this summer for a variety of reasons. What we would like to do is find an indoor location for Tiny Whoop racing during the winter. This will be a cheap way for new people to get started, and keep the events going in what would otherwise be the off-season for Wisconsin. If you have a location that would be willing to host, please get in touch with us!

Race Day, June 12, at MARCS

As a change of pace, we’ll be flying at Madison Area Radio Control Society (MARCS) on Sunday, June 12 at 10:00AM. Note that AMA membership is required. The Park Pilot Program level is fine.

Here’s the location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/43%C2%B003’54.9%22N+89%C2%B011’05.4%22W/@43.066175,-89.187289,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.065251!4d-89.184844?hl=en-US
