Membership Information: The club is open to all AMA Members.
Guest Flying: I have flown at this field as a guest. These are a good bunch of guys. FAST and the (Dayton Wingmasters) share a number of common members.
What you’ll find: The FAST club field is a beautiful site blocked off into the side of farm field. There is ample ditchable ground around the field. The field has a shelter with picnic tables and a storage building. This is an active group with flying every weekend.
Special Notes From Dave: It’s always “Gentlemanly” to observe the AMA Safety Code as a baseline at any new field until all local rules, etiquette and customs are learned. Be aware some fields have routine full scale air traffic nearby, others very little or none. It takes time to become aware of all the special concerns and routines at any new flying field.
Located 1.9 miles and 5 minutes west of the US Airforce Museum, just west of State Route 4. Across from Morris Furniture Mart.

This area of Ohio has some of the country’s best flying fields and several clubs over 100 members. Aviation both full scale and model is strong here. If you “Speak Model Airplane”, you’ll agree, Dayton is heaven.
We had a great time at the Modelrama. It was our highest grossing Swap Meet so far. I’m glad you let us sell shirts during the auction because we had another $200.00 in sales after the auction started. The best selling design was the Jumbo Corsair………
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you and all the Dayton Wingmasters for the fine hospitality my wife and I enjoyed at the swap meet last Saturday. All the folks we met were so kind and gracious to us, we had a wonderful time. If we didn’t know better, we’d have thought you were all “Sutherners”. Please extend our thanks to everyone who worked to make the event go so smoothly, and to all the R/Cers who did business with us, we really appreciate it, and we’re looking forward to coming back again next year.
Thanks again Dave. Dianne and I look forward to seeing you again next year, or maybe next month at Perry, Georgia.
Setting a new record again with 174 table reservations and thousands of dollars in auctioned models. Approximately 500 modelers attended from 5 states. The weather was a bit cool at 15 degrees Saturday morning. A perfect day to spend inside hunting new and used RC goodies! We thank you for attending and thank all the volunteers that worked hard to make this event a winner year after year. Mark your calendar for Feb 9, 2013.
