I am sure you have noticed the resent layout and navigational changes to our website. Most are improvements, while a few may be a little confusing. Let’s take a quick look. 


  1. (NEW) To access our Memorial Field weather station, Point at the temperature indicator to the left of KBDI Flag. Along with the the current temperature you will also see a quick description of field conditions including wind direction and speed. Click on this icon for a very detailed weather report, also from our station.
  2. Clicking on the three small horizontal dashes in the far upper left above our Club logo, will take you directly to our Site Map. You will notice all the topics, complete with dropdowns that were previously in the Blue Tool Bar. I believe you will find this much faster than hunting around the tool bar.
  3. From any page, clicking on the small R/C Fliers of Venice, to the right of the three bars will take you directly back to the Home page.
  4. Clicking on the KBDI, will take turbine fliers directly to current Safety Rules and Drought Index information.     
  5. The three small white icons under the large white  R/C Fliers of Venice are now labeled and should be self explanatory. They are: Events or calendar, Our Field and Join/Renew.

      Secretary: Jim Johnson


The R/C Fliers of Venice, Inc is a club of remote control airplane  enthusiasts  who build and fly model aircraft in Venice, Florida. Our members fly  gas, nitro, and electric powered  airplanes, gliders, sailplanes, & helicopters. Our annual Giant Scale event attracts many of the top builders and fliers in the country.

Monthly meetings are held at Memorial Field, 10am on the  2nd Saturday following the 1st Wednesday of each month. 

(No meetings in June, July, Aug or Sept)

Pleas Note: Due to Covid restrictions, field access is limited to club members only. Members may bring guests as long as they are riding in the same vehicle.

We invite you to visit us at our beautiful unobstructed  flying field  featuring 450 ft. paved, and  grass runways with safety screened pilot boxes  and  spectator viewing area. Pilot parking is at the pits, with spectator parking directly adjacent. Electric fliers are welcome to use any of our three 200 watt solar powered charging stations. We have also just added a live on line  (including this site) weather reporting system, for those who would like to check conditions at Memorial Field before they drive all the way out.
