Wanted
A computer literate member to assume the duties of maintaining the Saints Website.
After 20+ enjoyable years of being your webmaster, it is getting harder and harder for me
to maintain the site.  Aging has contributed to the problems and memory has decreased. 
At some time, in the future, I will be unable to continue and without a replacement,
you will not have a web site
I know there are a lot of you that can program and maintaining a website is only
a step away.  I will continue as long as I possibility can, but getting a replacement would
be a great. Please don't wait too long.  It would be a shame to suddenly lose the Website.
This will be the only notice I will give. Don't let it suddenly slip away.

Sedalia RC Flyers

Please check out our event flier for our SRCF 2nd Annual Fun Fly and Swap on June 24, 2017
in Sedalia, MO (see attached file).    At this year's event we have made some exciting changes. 
 The $15 pilot fee includes a free potluck lunch and one drink for you and 1 non-pilot guest
AND free swap space.  We are going to set up the swap tables directly behind the pilot 
boxes on the inside of the fence so you can easily devote time to flying and swapping.   
Visitors can walk on the outside of the fence and wheel and deal with you with out cutting
into precious flying time.

   For anyone just wanting to sell items (and not fly) free swap space will be located in the
area behind our bleachers.    Please bring your own tables.   Set up starts at 8am and the
pilot briefing will be at 8:45 followed by honoring the flag and flying at 9am.    

We are also excited to announce that thanks to our generous sponsors, Samson Hobbies and
Hobby Haven, we have over $350 worth of raffle items!    Come make the trip to
Sedalia and get great food, great deals and great prizes!   If you are interested in attending
please contact us by emailing SedaliaRCFlyersClub@Outlook.com or calling 660-909-3493. 
 Please check out our Facebook page to keep up with the latest SRCF news!    Hope to see you there!

3D Printing Work

Dan Dierking has been working with 3D Printing of objects.  He has offered
to provide the service to our members when they need objects
for their airplanes and other objects.  He sent pictures of some
or his products.  The following is his offer.

Here are some pictures as well as some information about the 3D printing that I do.
In the pictures, I have a pic of my 3D printer, a pilot, and in the parts pic, micro quad cases,
Taranis radio gimbal protectors, and a GoPro lens hood. I've been printing for a couple years.
I print mostly with PLA filament, but there are other options available like ABS, PETG,
and NYLON. I get all the items I want to print from www.thingiverse.com.

Unfortunately I don't have the ability to design parts, but the amount of parts on
thingiverse is quite large. I can print just about anything that is on thingiverse.
My print bed measures 8" wide x 8" long x 8" high. I do have the ability to
resize (larger or smaller) parts though. I can print in a variety of colors.
I currently have neon green, orange, red, purple and pink. Other colors available
are brown, black, blue, white, silver, natural, gray, yellow, and forest green.

Parts do take quite awhile to print. The filament is only 1.75mm thick and the
printer extrudes the filament .4mm thick. To print the micro quad cases for example,
it takes 13 hours to print each of the two halves.
 
I can print items for any of the club members. Pricing varies depending on the part.
I sell the gimbal protectors for $5 a set and the micro quad cases for $10 as examples.
 
Members are free to call me at 314-406-4949 or email me at 3dddman@gmail.com.
