DDMAC 2017 Easter Fly-In
Monday 17th April 2017 11am Start @ DDMAC Flying Field


The 2017 DDMAC Easter Fly-In will have a scale model theme.

However, you are welcome to come along and fly any type aircraft (fixed wing, helicopter or multi rotor) and enjoy the day.

There will be a prize for the best scale model on the day.
This will be an informal event, judged by a few of our club members based on the models general appearance and its flying, in a scale like manner. There will no formal flying manoeuvres, we just want people to come along and have some fun and enjoy themselves.
If the aircraft looks like a full-size aircraft (foamee’s or whatever), just come along and fly it.

We will also hold our ETA event (details below). This event is open to any aircraft.

1. ETA Fixed Wing, Helicopters & Multi Rotor
Draw a time from a hat (can be anything from 90 to 150 seconds). Flyer has to take off and land, trying to land in a time, as near as possible to the time drawn from the hat. Winner is the pilot who lands the nearest to their time. Time starts from when the wheels or skids (helicopters / multi rotor) leave the ground and ends when they wheels/skids touch back down (no transmitter timers or watches allowed).

All pilots will be briefed, as they arrive regarding the flying field rules and transmitter control. If you have any questions, please ask. The safety of everyone is paramount.

Tea & Coffee will be available in the club cabin throughout the day.
We will be looking to serve bacon and sausage sandwiches around mid-day.
There will be a charity donation jar on the prize table. Any donations will be gratefully received and will go to the clubs nominated charity for the year–

‘The Alzheimer’s Society’


Local BMFA Northern area club members, are welcome to join us for the day.

We do have a limit of no models over 7 Kilograms and a noise limit of no models over 82 decibels measured at 7 metres.

If you require any more information or details, please contact

DDMAC Membership Secretary.

This event is going ahead (11.00am start).

The current forecast is suggesting it should stay fine with light cloud and sunny spells. There is the chance of a rain shower during the day.

Thank you to everyone who turned up for this event and thanks to everyone who helped to run the day. For a change the weather was kind to us, with some light winds and even some sunshine.

We raised £112.77 for The Alzheimer’s Society, the clubs nominated charity for this year. Thank you for all the contributions.

Martin Lynn,
DDMAC Membership Secretary.
