 The Bedford Flyers have been flying their indoor model airplanes as a club at the BRAC for over 25 years. There are two distinct groups. The Free Flyers build their own stick-and-tissue, rubber band-powered model airplanes. These small models are very challenging to build and fly well. The club members strive to improve their building and flying skills as a lifetime hobby. They have also hosted many major indoor model meets and new flight endurance records have been made there. The second group is the Remote Control Flyers who fly various small, electric powered aircrafts, including a variety of fixed wing aircrafts, quad-copters, helicopters and even the occasional ornithopter. There are no fees to participate. Spectators are always welcome. For more information, please call Larry Blalock at 817-521-5555 or email at larryb7@msn.com.
