Come enjoy building and conversing alongside other enthusiasts and tinkerers! Participants are also welcome to bring in old model yachts, other remote control boats, airplanes, drones, helicopters, or any type of models to compare, contrast, and talk shop. The Maine Model Yacht Club will host regattas and sailing/flying get-togethers throughout the warmer months. Please, shoot over questions to helicopterhuck@gmail.com about different model yachts to purchase before the workshop or just to connect. The suggested model yachts with remote control and receiver range from $220- $750.
