Club Noticeboard


All, just a quick reminder that the AGM is scheduled to be held this Sunday at the field.  It would be appreciated if everyone could attend at 9am for a prompt 9.30am start for the meeting.  As per Dave’s email a BBQ will be held shortly after the meeting is completed. 

We have received nominations for all the executive positions and major committee positions (so you don’t have to be afraid of getting a job on the day). 

There are a number of items to be discussed on the day and a copy of the agenda is attached, if anyone has any other items they wish to be added please let me know prior.  I promise we will move through this as quickly as possible, especially if the weather is as good as it was last Sunday. 

I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.

Welcome to the official web site of the Townsville Radio Aeronautical Control Society (TRACS). We are a radio control model aeronautics club whose goal it is, to promote and enjoy the safe flying of RC model aircraft and to encourage further interest of current and future members of the club so we can all enjoy the pleasures and satisfaction this hobbies bring.


While we are overwhelmingly a sport-flyers club, our members and guests enjoy everything from trainers to scale models. We like to encourage anyone to come out to fly with us as guest flyers are always welcome. The club is made up of model airplane and helicopter enthusiast of every age and background. The only common thread is the love of aviation in general and radio control models in particular.


We do not hold formal contests but promote "Fly-In" and Fun Fly type events. A typical day at the field will see 20 modellers with planes and helicopters in the pits, 2 or 3 flying, and the rest relaxing ”encouraging" landing pilots. Winter flying finds the field at its most active.
