The Edmonton Radio Control Society (ERCS) was formed in 1959 with the goal of providing safe and enjoyable flying facilities for the sport of flying radio controlled aircraft. Whether you are into nitro, gas, electric, or turbines, you will find pilots that share your interest. The club offers ground school and in-flight training for new pilots at no cost to its members. Our flying field is located just a few minutes east of Edmonton in Strathcona County. See aerial view of the field.

The Old Forum Is Being Retired
It's time to say good bye to our old forum and hello to the new forum! All the photos from our old forum have been added to our website Photo Gallery. Unfortunately it's too much of an effort to save the old forum messages so they will be lost.
Next weekend on September 23rd, the old forum will be turned off for good. If there is anything you want to save, now is the time!
Please use the new forum from now on.
