Welcome

Chicagoland Radio Control Modelers, Inc. was founded in 1948 to promote radio controlled model airplane flying for the enjoyment and recreation of its members. We are a non-profit organization and all dues and monies received are used to maintain our flying site or to promote club activities. Our founder was Frank Madl, who conceived the original spring nose landing gear. He submitted the idea to Flying Models magazine and received a $5.00 award for it in 1957.

Meetings are generally held on the first Friday of the month at the Schaumburg Airport. The Airport is located at Wright and Irving Park Roads, just west of Roselle Road and South of the Elgin O’Hare Expressway. The meetings start at 7:30 PM and at the conclusion of the meeting we meet for some food and drinks at the restaurant on the main floor of the airport.

Just a reminder: your membership badges and club decals are available and waiting for pickup at the officer’s table. Badges are $15.00/each and decals are $1.00 each for large size or 2 small size. Remember, you must have a club decal on your plane to qualify for the Model-of-the-Month drawing (unless it’s a scale model).

Airplane Retrieval

If you have lost your plane in the trees, contact Bob Bajzek at 630-639-8672. Bob has no retrieval fee and relies on the generosity of the plane owner for his fee. Don’t forget what you’ve got tied up in that model when you thank him.
