Thanks to the Taliferro Family for donating the following aircraft to our club!

If you are interested in working on them please contact Charlie Campbell at 325-651-8027or email at email@example.com. These aircraft will be used as trainers for our club members.

Member Josh Yarbro wants to create a Multi GP Drone Racing Chapter for our club. He is currently working with the clubs from Abilene and Midland who are also forming a charter. Josh’s goal is to create a Tier 3 Chapter which requires 10 members and running 6 events in a 180 day period. To become a chapter member all that is required is an AMA membership. A charter member can also belong to multiple clubs which will help them reach their membership requirements.
