Welcome to the Clovis Area Modelers (CAM) [ClovisRC] Club!
We are dedicated to being one if not the finest radio-controlled (RC) and general model aviation (CL) clubs in the nation. We’re based out of Clovis, and have members from surrounding areas as well.
We have two active fields to fly at; a Park near central Clovis that features a 300,000 square foot area for electric planes; and, at an old ranch 3,000′ airstrip with a 700′ resurfaced runway for all facets of RC flying (new 120’x26′ shaded pit) plus two Control Line Circles (one with a 10′ cement Pilot Pad).
We have several instructor pilots and master builders who can help you learn to fly or build your own airplane. Our club features experts in Turbine, Gas, Glow, Wind, and Electric powered aircraft. We fly everything from Control Line to Drones to Gliders to Giant Scale Aerobatics to EDF and Turbine Jets. Learn More.
We've Done It!
With the dedication from our members and interested parties, we’ve completed a pit expansion to another 120′ x 26′ with a metal shade. With, both Generator and Solar Electricity at every station. Plus Lighting.
Here’s what’s next on the project for Spring of 2021?
- Expand the ramp on the western side of the pits to extend Pit Options and improve ADA accessibility.
- Move the Flag Pole back and to the west next to the Information Board
- Add the second Control Line Pilot Pad

The Yosemite Sierra Pylon Racing Association (YSPRA)Clovis RC - On the YSPRA - NMPRA Circuit
Introduction to NMPRA Electric Formula One (EF1)
NMPRA (National Miniature Pylon Racing Association) Electric Formula One (EF1) is a racing event for radio control airplanes powered by electric motors. The event is intended to be easy to get into, available everywhere, reasonably priced and using off-the-shelf components (ARF and build KITS) to create the maximum amount of fun. While there is a great diversity in equipment available for electric models, the rules are designed to eliminate a technological advantage available to a limited few and allow all participants to compete on an even level.
The NMPRA maintains strict control of the rules and their interpretation; and, will make necessary adjustments to these rules to eliminate any development, technological or otherwise, which upsets the level playing field. Therefore, the rules will provide a guideline for the racing event and its equipment, necessary for the CD to execute the EF1 event. The EFI rules to be utilized can be found by searching with your browser “NMPRA Electric Formula One Rules”. It is a 12-page PDF document dated 4/15/2014.
The (Fresno Radio Modelers) would like to invite all interested pilots to come to Ave 12, FRM field for the 2021 YSPRA racing season, starting the last weekend of March on Saturday 27th. Pilots do not have to be a member of FRM; however, do need to have their AMA license. There will be a nominal pilot fee (to cover prizes and awards) at each contest. FRM would like all pilots that come to our YSPRA EF1 events to have an enjoyable good time and be sure to have fun.
