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.
Notices & Upcoming Events

Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in the Edmonton area as well as the current restrictions on guest pilots at our field we have decided to cancel the fall Electric Fun Fly and Combat events this year. The good news is that this will give you more time to purchase an electric Bloody Wonder combat plane kit from Muryl or Dave C. They're inexpensive and you could use them at the next combat contest or electric fun fly when things get back to normal :)
Don McGowan, a former MAAC zone director for Alberta, passed away 26 July 2020. There was a Celebration of Life for Don on Aug. 6th, 2020 in Stony Plain.
Members, monitor your email for the latest field status updates. With the field opening and closing so much lately due to the flooding issue that's the best way to know whether the field is open or not.
Field is now open
The pumping of the road is now complete and the road is now passable so the field is now open. When you arrive you will notice that all of the chairs, picnic tables, start-up stations, and white tables are put away and are NOT AVAILABLE for use. Please bring your own chairs and tables. Please ensure that you take them home with and do not leave them at the field.
We also want to remind you to follow the Provincial COVID guidelines and in particular the six foot distancing, masks if you can't maintain six feet, and hand sanitation (you need to provide yourself).
"Members Only" no guests until further notice.
All camping is postponed until further notice.
Remember everyone's safety is everyone's responsibility.
Thanks for your patience as we work through everything.
Message from the ERCS Executive
The ERCS executive is asking for everyone's patience while arrangements are being made to open the field again. The situation is complex and we want to make sure everyone will be safe to fly and that the road into the field is not damaged beyond our means of repairing it. Please know that we are working hard to get the field open as soon as possible. An email with more details will be sent to members soon.
