Welcome to the
Dorset Model Helicopter Club
The Dorset Model Helicopter Club situated in Poole, is a BMFA affiliated club and was founded in May 2005. Since then it has established a very good name and reputation within the R/C helicopter world. We are proud to have some very experienced heli pilots within the club. The help and support available to members is second to none.
You will find that we are a very friendly bunch and the clubs principal aim is the promotion of safe and responsible model flying.
For those wishing to take the BMFA helicopter 'A' or 'B' test we run practice/training sessions as required.
We also try to hold 'set-up' evenings when possible so as members can bring their heli along to get help and advise, draw upon members knowledge and experience, maybe even contribute some of their own.
Our Club operates on a purely voluntary basis, the committee being as follows ...
Committee Members – Ian Stokes / Kevin Chandler / Mike Moore
Flying times are daily from 10am till 7pm or dusk, whichever comes first. There is no night flying allowed.
Coming up soon
UPDATE: This event has now been postponed due to the recent levels of rainfall
