Welcome to Sodbusters R/C Club

In 1981 the founding members Frank Zocco, Ren Fetzer, Tim Mallet, Dean Everetts, John Boyd, Mark Glammeier, Terry Satterlee, and Jim Ricketts created a new club in the Sioux Falls area. The Sod Busters had a monthly newsletter called the, "R/C Flyers Newsletter". It had a logo of an airplane tail sticking out of the ground. Mark Glammeier and Chuck Erlandsen produced the newsletter. The club's first flying field was in Harrisburg. That field was lost due to a housing development. The club moved to another field in the Harrisburg area in 1987, and that lasted for several years, until that was lost to a housing development in the fall of 1998. During the loss of a flying field, the Sioux Falls RC'ers and Beresford Area Radio Flyers let us use their fields as guests until a new location was found. Dean Everetts found our current location in 1999, and went to Minnehaha County Commission meetings to get permission for us to use the property for RC flying. Sod Busters has hosted an RC auction for over 20 years. The first auction was at the Western Mall, then a church, then the VFW, and now at the American Legion.

Latest Club Meeting

 Our last meeting was held at Donovan?s Hobby Shop. Only 8 members attended. We thank Bill for using his ?back room? at the store. In a unanimous yes vote, the new club dues for 2018 will be set at $25. Payable after Jan 1 with a deadline of March 31. After March 31 the dues will be $30, no exceptions. About Jan 1 you will receive a notice as to where you can mail the check. I?m sure most of you already know that the FAA/UAS registration is back on again. That didn?t last long did it? Show and tell: Tim Mallat brought his new O.S. 33cc gas engine. A real beauty it is. His plan is to put that in a recently acquired Aeroworks Extra 300. We?ll be looking for that next summer. Also, Jim McGuire bought his new Sig Ultimate biplane. This has the profile fuselage. Will have a .62 4 stroke for power. A sharp looking airplane. I brought ? the wing (86?) of my glider project. Called the Sattiga, being built from plans with the wing construction complete. A few square yards of covering to go. Dean Everetts has been a club member since our club began. Even many years before that he was an avid modeler. He has the lowest AMA # of anyone in the club. Jan 15 will be his 90th birthday. We have started a card for him which will be at Donovan?s Hobby until the end of the year. If you are a club member and are in the area, even though you may not know him or he don?t know you, please stop in and tell Adam or Dave you want to sign the card for Dean. Wouldn?t that be great to have 75 signatures on that card? This will be a surprise for him as he does not have any email service. He had some issues with the heart this past summer. Got that taken care of and says he is going to do some flying next summer! No meeting in Dec See you in 2018. OR, maybe a few of us can sneak out some nice fall day?
