Welcome to the home page of the Atlantic Society of Radio Control Modellers
We are an active group of modellers flying at a site on the Gays River Road, about three kilometres east of the village of Shubenacadie in Nova Scotia.
We fly a variety of glow, gas and electric powered aircraft.
Guests with a valid MAAC membership are welcome to drop in and fly with us.
Note: All photos and events that have appeared on the site's front page this season can be accessed through the photo links on the ladder above.
Cold temperatures in the area of 5 degrees and winds blowing 30-35 km/hr presented flyers attending our annual Spring Fun Fly with some challenges on May 18. Still, there was a lot of flying done. Strykers as usual were prominent, helis included numerous 130x's braving the high winds in a group (awesome to see), funcubs are just plain fun in the wind, and various other aircraft took to the air, notably ones that attendees keep for such days.
The boys coming back from their Rare Bear flight. Note the smiles! Awesome fast airplanes!

Alain was the chef de jour. Thanks Alain, excellent job!
The conditions resulted in quite a bit of hangar flying. Assistant Zone Director for the Atlantic Zone Sandy McInnis looks after my dog "willow". Thanks Sandy for keeping her feet warm.
