Welcome to richpeabody.com! This web site should change from time to time to reflect current projects or events. I would really enjoy your comments or suggestion and hope that you will telephone me at 

 (201) 669-2605 or e-mail me.  

Favorite Links ... On this page I have several links to web sites that I find informative and interesting.  I hope that you will check them out!  They primarily reflect model aviation suppliers and supporters.  My primary interest is control line flying and I am a member of several local and National organizations concerned with the promotion and growth of the sport.

This site is an ongoing project that demonstrates some of the wonderful capabilities of the Internet.  I believe that the Internet will surpass media such as the "Yellow Pages" and believe that I am able to offer strategies and solutions to the small businessman.  Call me on my cell at (201) 669-2605  I promise to get right back.

In Northern New Jersey, the biggest, best and most active controline Club is the Garden State Circle Burners.  The Circle Burners have a very rich history and have leased a site on Two Bridges Road in Lincoln Park since 1961!  Multiple National Champions in several modeling categories can boast that they are Circle Burners! There is a schedule of control line events here.  Check out the GSCB web site.  

Photo Albums: Look at my photo albums for shots taken at local and National modeling contests.  If you have a photo that you would like posted, please e-mail it to me.

The Bergen County Controline Flyers are a group that is fortunate enough to be able to fly from a dedicated site in Overpeck Park , and share the swimming pool lot in Palisades Park for seasonal contests.  

The Garden State Circle Burners annual Swap Meet and Fun Auction is always a big hit!  The SWAP MEET is scheduled for the WAYNE FIREHALL (LOCATION and DATE: Sunday, November 23th, 2014. The doors open at 8:00 for vendors and we will hold an auction at around noon. It's all over but the brooming by noon. Bring a plane and lines and fly at the GSCB field afterwards.

  

   I have moved full time to Venice, Florida and am a member of the Tampa Bay Line Flyers. The TBLF fly at a terrific field leased and maintained by the Manatee County Radio Controllers, Inc. The MCRC site has a separate control line flying area adjacent to  the RC area. The control line site has a concrete center circle and well as a concrete take-off area. The c/l site is fenced and is in "fairly" open air (GSCB'ers will appreciate how open it is). Facilities at the field are surpurb! The clubhouse is a double-wide mobile home, that features both a ladies and men's room with running water! There is electricity available for RV'ers, and the concession facilities are terrific. The grass is mowed to about 1/4" for contests!

The annual Stunt N Fun contest was expanded to a two-day format in 2013 with OTS, Beginner and N-30 flown on Saturday and Precision Aerobatics (I, A and E) flown on Sunday. The top three fliers in Expert Stunt then fly a single flight fly-off to determine the winner of the Stunt N Fun Trophy. Curt Contrata celebrated his return to competitive stunt with a victory in Expert as well as taking the Trophy! Wayne Smith and family did a wonderful job of CD'ing and running the event. 

We hope that you will put the Stunt N Fun on your calendar for 2014!  November 1st and 2nd.
