Welcome to control line flying in the Fraser Valley! 



Our site has limited capacity (100 meg), so posting photos 

in their original form would quickly put the site over 
capacity with that you may (or may not) have noticed a lack 
of photos over the last year.  

This is the result of my old computer crashing and losing 
a good picture manipulation program and having 
to replace everything.

The program I currently have does not compress photos
for e-mail or web sites.  If you can suggest a replacement 
program - please send me an e-mail.

IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THE SEND ME AN E-MAIL FEATURE, that I thought was working, ISN'T!  We are working on it.  Larry L.

A great big thanks to Joe Y. who passed on this excellent AMA produced film explanation of our sport of control line. Enjoy.

It has come to my attention that followers of this web site  may not have realized that any past event that has had a report made on it (including club meeting reports) CAN BE ACCESSED  by going to "EVENTS" then scrolling down past all "Upcoming events" to "Past events", find the event you are investigating and click on it.  That should give you the information you were seeking.

I'm passing this on from Gerry B. of the Vancouver Gas Model Club. Larry  "lots of interesting pictures here.  Gerry B"

I am now adding the events of the B.C. Aces to this site.


Joe Yau recently sent the Tulsa Gluedobbers Control Line Club web site.  The Tulsa Gluedobbers are a club similar in size and (appears to be) age as ours.  I found the "Workshop" "Building" of specific interest.


Paul Bedford just sent this link.  -  Enjoy!

"The view from the cockpit!  What a lesson in coordination!  Four hands, four feet, and six eyes - all working as one! 

Bombardier Aerospace Montreal made these aircraft. They don't "motor around" to fill the tanks---they touch down at approach speed, open the fill scoops, add lots of power and the tanks fill in seconds.

There's one scene in the film where you can see the two tank level gauges rapidly go up.  The other neat thing is watching the magnitude of the flight control inputs, especially aileron, as they are maneuvering down low---sometimes the pilot is literally going stop to stop.  Real flying!   Paul."
