Dundee Model Aircraft Club
2021 Season COVID-19 restrictions
Following the latest Scottish Government COVID-19 restrictions especially in light of the new variant, it is vitally important that everyone plays their part in preventing this virus from spreading as much as is humanly possible.
The guidance on the Scottish Government website states that we can participate in outdoor recreation with one other person from a different household, which would permit only two people to attend a flying field facility at any one time.
However, the SAA council are recommending that you refrain from R/C flying until further notice and only attending flying sites for essential maintenance purposes, as long as you have the landowner’s permission. We are constantly reviewing the Scottish Government guidance and are in contact with SportScotland, we will report back when there is a significant change.
Although the main gates to Barry Buddon are “open” we have been advised by the SAA that in view of the current Covid situation we should keep the club closed, which is what we will be doing.
We have heard nothing as yet from Landmarc but we can assume they will be restricting access anyway, as they did during the first lockdown.
Welcome to the DMAC website.
Whether you’re new to the world of radio control aircraft or an old hand (should that be “wing”?), we hope that everyone will find something of interest on our web site.
Some wishes for aeromodellers!
May your engines start first flick.
May you speed controler arm
May all your rolls be axial.
May your aircraft always land in the same condition it took off in.
May your radio gear never suffer glitching.
May your props not bite.
May all your Solarfilm be wrinkle free.
May your Dremel only remove the balsa you want.
May your partner never find your receipts.
May your cyano bottle not clog up at the little bit at the top.
May all your test flights be boring.
May the wind always be straight down the runway.
Finally, remember the old pilot’s adages –
There are old pilots.
There are bold pilots.
But there are no old, bold pilots!
