While out birding one recent morning, I stopped by a local model airplane "airport" to witness a group of men with expensive toys (like me). What a fascinating hobby !!! Actually I found it to be a good practice site for those fast moving birds that I rarely photograph. One of the club members asked me to post some of the photos I took of his pride and joy. Here they are, Pat ..... It's really no different than photographing birds, i.e. sometimes all I got was a tail ! I'll try harder the next time.
This is a neat place for the young and old. They have special dates during the year where one can try their hand at flying a radio controlled model airplane. They even have a paved runway. It is located in Baltimore Highlands near the Light Rail Station. This is what they say about their organization.
SWAP Modelers is a chartered club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), a recreational and educational organization under the Baltimore Highlands Recreation Council. We are an organization of enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the development of radio controlled (R/C) modeling as a recreational, sporting, and educational activity. It is also our goal to encourage brotherhood among the present and future members of the club and community; and to aid the programs of the Baltimore Highlands Recreation Council and the AMA. We, the members of SWAP Modelers, would like to extend an invitation to you to visit us at our flying field in the Southwest Area Park.
