See Where the Action Is for details on all upcoming Northwest control-line model aviation events


The Oregon Flying Fun series offers an opportunity to enjoy many unusual control-line airplanes that aren't seen on the normal contest schedule. At the 2022 Oregon Flying Fun No. 2 in Roseburg, Ore., Mike Hazel flew his 38 Special biplane, which was built several years ago by Mel Marcum of Eugene, Ore. The Roseburg stop in the fun fly series will be this coming Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Church on the Rise flying site. See Where the Action Is for all the details of the fun fly series.
