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.
