Whether you are an experienced R/C Pilot or a beginner, you owe it to yourself to visit Blue Ridge Radio Control Located in Piedmont, South Carolina since 1997, Blue Ridge Radio Control boasts over 50 active members. When the weather is right, our five flight stations are buzzing with activity, while the pits allow covered conversation for many more pilots. We have four shelters, each complete with power. Running water allows us to keep our runway green in the dog days of summer, and keeps our dogs cool on occasion as well. Our members love the 1000 foot grass runway with zero vertical obstructions. Beginners will find it easy to setup both takeoffs and landings, while more experienced pilots enjoy high-speed inverted passes on the deck. With virtually unlimited airspace, there is plenty of room to fly any model aircraft that you wish. On a nice Saturday you'll find models ranging from beat up trainers to high powered turbine jets. We welcome electric, nitro, and gasoline powered Fixed- Wing and Heli's. Visitors are always welcome to come and hang out with us a Blue Ridge Radio Control. We look forward to meeting you, and doing our absolute best to get you to join us in this educational and entertaining hobby.
