Anderson Aero Modelers share love of RC flying

“There’s a social aspect here to it,” said Sanqunetti. “A lot of flying happens under the tarps.”

“We piddle around with planes, we sit and visit,” said Garrett. “It’s a nice place to come and enjoy the outdoors, share stories, ideas. That’s the main thing —it’s very enjoyable.”
