Welcome to El Paso Radio Controllers!
EPRC Annual Food drive!
We would appreciate your support in our annual canned food drive for those in need this year.
Our donations will be going to the VFW this year, there are seven families in need this year.
Thanksgiving is very close, we ask that each member bring 1 or more canned food items and place it in the big blue ice chest in the field club house. This is a very worthy cause and is greatly appreciated by those in need. We plan to deliver the items next week. So if you can, Please show your support for this cause.
Thank You for your continued support!
Spaceport America Drone Summit 2016
El Paso Radio Controllers participated in the 2016 Spaceport America Drone Summit by special invitation from the AMA. Several club members attended and flew in the fixed wing demo event.
"The world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport located in southern New Mexico in the USA has partnered with the New Mexico Filmmakers Give Back, the International Cinematographers Guild, and the AMA – Academy of Model Aeronautics, to bring together drone enthusiasts from across the USA and beyond to share in three action-packed days of racing, workshops, R/C fixed wing airplane demos and an aerial cinematography contest inside the futuristic horizontal launch campus."
Night Fright was Great!
The Night Fright event was a success. We had great weather and lots of flying. We want to Give a Big Thanks to John for putting up the lights under the Canopys. It was so great to be able to see and yet not so bright to distract the flying. Thank you John! Fritz brought out a Flying Witch made from CL plans from the 70's. John and Ryan were flying foamies and his Banshee at night too. Race Quads were zooming through the air and everyone had a great time. Thank you to all who participated.
Our October Night Flight is a go!
We will have 260-250 size quads flying as well as open flying!
6121 Stan Roberts, Patriot Field.

To our 2016 Ray Hall Memorial Winners!
Event photos are now up in the media section. Enjoy!
Our mall show at the Harmony Spring Fair was a big hit. Our display drew the interest of a large number of individuals, to include the local EMS and Fire Dept. employees.
We spoke with quite a few individuals interested in the hobby and answered many of their questions. The "Drone" display and demo flights were a big hit with the very young crowd.
We would like to thank all those who took the time to stop by and visit with us, we really enjoyed talking to you!
A Special Thanks to our club members that gave up their time and energy to make this event the success that it was.
