Welcome to the Triad AeroModelers Inc. Website. Everyone is welcome to come to R.G. Satow RC Flying Field and watch. If you have a current AMA Membership you should join us for a relaxing day of fun flying. If you don't know how to fly, let us know, we will teach you!


R.G. Satow RC Flying Field is now an APPROVED FRIA FLYING SITE!! This means if you are a member of a community based organization (aka: Academy of Model Aeronautics) your can fly at our field and you DO NOT need a Remote Identification Signal to be transmitted from your RC model planes. You can view the flight boundaries for our field by clicking on this link FRIA.

To see if R.G. Satow RC Flying Field is flooded by Abbotts Creek, click on the image below.


 R.G. Satow RC Flying Field is 7 feet above the Lexington NOAA sensor. Therefore, when the observed water level on the Lexington graph shows 7 feet, the water in Abbotts Creek is level with our flying field.

TAI Members at R.G. Satow RC Flying Field

 Several TAI members were at the flying field on 4 Feb 2024. The weather was cool, winds were steady, and the field conditions were wet, but we had several folks flying anyway. The two top pictures are Darrin and Brian with a couple real nice large planes. Both aircraft have 120cc twins for power, and both pilots put on an awesome show.

 All flights were not without any issues. The two bottom pictures show Larry with his latest plane before (left) and after (right) his flight. Sorry Larry, but most of us have been there before. Just the nature of the hobby.
