Our History

Our club is over 40 years old now (since 1977), for most of this time we have been a pure r/c soaring club. With the advent of far more efficient electric power we also fly eModels and eSoarers of all kinds. We like all kinds of quiet flight and like to keep a low noise footprint for our neighbours. We also host monthly scale aerotow flying days. See www.seqsa.net

Our members

MRSSA is a small club catering for one part of the R/C modelling world. Most of our members also belong to other clubs. We have some extremely experienced and highly skilled pilots with very diverse skills. Such as molded model design and manufacture to building old style from wood and fabric. Our pilots enjoy everything from fun flying to dedicated competition flying. Some of our membership have represented the country in world championships.

What about the future?

Radio Control modelling has changed very much since the bulky and heavy superhet single channel radios of the 50s and 60s. Now very sophisticated 2.4GHz radios up to 32 channels with telemetry and small powerful servos and tiny receivers are very common. Models and accessories are as varied as your imagination. Our club remains committed to quiet flight but we also have many members with large 25 to 40% scale soarers to 7m span that are usually aerotowed with large gas powered models to 4m span. Bungee and winch launching is giving way to elaunching.

Maybe this kind of r/c flying appeals to you? Perhaps you will be a vital part of our club's future?
