Tokay Radio Control Modelers
Welcome! Our club is dedicated to the hobby of radio controlled model aviation. We are based in Lodi, California which is 40 miles south of Sacramento. We are an AMA Chartered club, #1251, founded in 1970.
Our members fly a wide range of RC aircraft ranging from small park flyers and electric powered, to giant scale aerobatic and scale planes. We have RC instructors willing to teach you how to fly your RC aircraft, and members who can answer all your RC questions. We put on many events throughout the year including Fun Flys, Giant Scale Meets, Pylon Racing, IMAC Contests and social gatherings. We provide a monthly newsletter the HEADWIND available from our Newsletter page. We are a friendly club who believes that RC flying should be enjoyable!
