Welcome to the Clovis Area Modelers (CAM) [ClovisRC] Club!
We are dedicated to being one if not the finest radio-controlled modeling club 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 foot airstrip with a 600 resurfaced runway for all facets of RC flying (new 120’x26′ shaded pit area) and two Control Line Circles (one with a new 10′ 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 Turbine and EDF Jets. Learn More.

We Made It!
Our fundraising efforts and new lifetime memberships gave us the boost to hit our target to fund our new pit project. A target we could not have done without your efforts. We are now urgently moving ahead with a very ambitious project to have a new concrete pit area (120′ x 24′) with metal shade structure completed by end of September. What we’ll need are volunteers! So, it’s going to be a busy September. Mark your calendars, here’s the construction schedule for the concrete and 24×120′ metal shade structure:
- 8/29 Cutting of poles, elevation surveys, final grading
- 9/5 Arrange for delivery of scaffolds, final grading, complete cutting of poles, start setting 2×4 forms
- 9/12 First concrete pour – North Pit
- 9/19 Second and final concrete pour – South Pit, concrete work completed.
- 9/20 Finish setting all vertical poles (x14) and paint
- 9/21 Arrival of metal roof materials
- 9/21 – 9/27 Metal structure construction/assembly
- 9/27 New metal shade structure completed.
- 10/3 Club meeting, Clean Up and Fun Fly, and BBQ as follows:
Meeting will be October 3 (9AM-10AM) at Peg Field. This will be a combination Meeting and Fun/Night Fly. Beginning at 10:00 AM will be a fun fly. This will consist of a (1) dice roll, 3 loops and land (the John Lockwood challenge), (2) a Limbo (the FRM President Stan Cole challenge), (3) a 3 minute count of Touch Roll and Go (the Dale Grant Challenge); and a Balloon Bust. At dark, we’ll roll out the night-flyers for some bright action. The agenda for the meeting will be to go over the work thats been done to improve Peg Field; discuss upcoming events; and take some suggestions for any events our members think we should sponsor in 2021. So, bring a friend to the fun fly – non-CAM member landing fee – $10 – AMA Required. Also, as Covid19 is still overshadowing our activities; masks and distancing will be respected. We’ll have a BBQ but if you feel safer, bring your own food and drink. And dont forget, the MARCS Warbird Event is October 10 at their Tranquility Field. So, lets Mask Up & Fly On.
