The Radio Control Club of Detroit is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and advancement of model aviation as a hobby. We invite all types of RC model aviation supported by the AMA. The club currently promotes Scale, Giant Scale, Precision Aerobatics, Scale Aerobatics, and Combat with event status. We are proud to have top national competitors within our ranks.

The flying field is well-groomed 1200 ft x 300ft grass. Although RCCD is primarily a radio control club, we also have a U-control area. Our flying facility is located in Wetzel State Park. This state park is named after one of Michigan's thirteen Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. The Radio Control Club of Detroit constructed a War Memorial on site and dedicated the facility "Wetzel Memorial Flying Field" on August 2nd, 1997. This state park is located in Lenox Twp. of Northern Macomb Co. Michigan. This is approximately 30 miles north of Detroit.

LEARN TO FLY R/C

We have an active program to introduce you to R/C flying. Go to About RCCD or click on the following links:

- Fly RCCD's plane a couple of times:
To get an idea of what is like, our Intro Pilot Program will get you "on the sticks" of our club Intro Plane via a buddy box. An instructor controls the primary transmitter to ensure you get the hang of it. Try a couple of flights to see what it's like.

- Learn on your plane - Free:
Once you decide R/C aviation is for you, our Flight Instruction Program is a safe and enjoyable way to learn to solo, with minimal risk to your model aircraft. Our instructors are listed on this link. Give one of them a call.
