Our History

Our club is over 44 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

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 we fly

Models and accessories are as varied as your imagination. Our club remains committed to quiet flight. Bungee and winch launching is giving way to electric launch and we have a strong core of committed competition pilots who persue that side of the sport. 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.

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