Who Are We?:
The Quinapoxet Model Flying Club is a R/C aircraft club with
fields located off River Street in Holden, MA. and rt110 in Lancaster at an area known as "Bolton Flats".
As a club, we seek to promote the R/C hobby through the flight instruction,
building and flying of radio controlled aircraft, in accordance with both AMA
and club rules.
Visiting flyers (with AMA)
are welcome to fly at our fields while accompanied by a QMFC club member. Non-flyers are welcome as spectators. Please, no pets. Click here for detailed directions.

Was taken sometime in March at Crow Island Club. It just happened that 6 of us brought Cubs and 4 were quarter scale. The picture's title?? Well "Make way for Ducklings" of course. Thanks to Bill Belmore for letting us use his Legend Cub.
What do we do?:
We primarily focus on
R/C sports, sport scale, pattern and scale aerobatics. We also have quite a
Gremlin combat following. We do have a few club members who fly helicopters
at the field. Other members who like to fly gliders or compete in racing
events tend to belong to other clubs. Most of us either build our own planes or assemble ARF's (Almost Ready to Fly) aircraft. If you'd like to see some of our building projects click here.
Flight Instruction & Flight Tests:
The QMFC encourages
new members to the club and to the hobby. go to "Getting Started" for more information on joining this hobby. Therefore, we maintain a staff of
very experienced Flight Instructors. Flight instruction is free of charge to
QMFC members in good standing. See more information under "Our
