|Ken Spittler's Free Flight Converted to Electric RC|
The picture above is of the model airplane flyers in Winona in the 1940's, one of the guys in the picture Ken Spittler I still fly with. Another modeler in the picture Bernie Drier lives in Rochester and is still very active flying model airplanes.

|Eric at 13 Started on Computer Flight Simulator|
One of the major issues to keep a model airplane club going is recruiting younger members. Locally we have some younger people flying electric RC planes when they can find time but the club was already on the decline when they started. It is my understanding that Eric in the picture above flying is now flying military drones.
