Welcome to the Sundancer's RC Club Website

Welcome to the website for the Sundancers RC Club.

We are a 140+ and growing community of radio controlled enthusiasts.  Our facilities are located in west St. Lucie county and cover all major RC disciplines, from flying to boating to off-road racing.  The Sundancers RC Club is a private members only playground.  

Club membership offers a number of benefits. The main benefit is use of the club’s facilities.  All of the facilities are maintained by the club dues and event income.  In addition to paying club dues, all members must be insured by at least one of the following:

  • The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) for all things that fly, float, or roll on the ground.
  • ROAR for all things with wheels on the ground (or that occasionally end up turtled after a bad jump!).  In order to participate in ROAR sponsored races, the drivers must have ROAR insurance (AMA will not cover insurance requirements during racing events).
  • NAMBA for all things that ride on (or under!) the surface of a body of water.  In order to participate in NAMBA sponsored races, the boat capitans must have NAMBA insurance (AMA will not cover insurance requirements during racing events).

Our radio control park has a 1000 feet grass East-West runway, a 500 feet grass North-South runway, and a large pond for the float flying/boating modelers, and now after much hard work, an oval and off-road car track is in place and is open for business. Additionally, we have electric power at the facility available for charging batteries.

You will find our Location, club contacts, and more information about the club within the website.  

Come on out and join us.  Visitors are always welcome.  When you are ready to join the club, visit the Join Us tab above.

Introducing Online “Pay to Play" with PayPal

Ever have one of those days where you drove out to the car track for a race and forgot cash for your entry fee? Ever show up at a fly in event and realize you forgot cash to pay your landing fee? Now you can use PayPal to pay the Sundancers RC Club for race and fly in entry fees. You can also pay your annual dues, or even donate some money online. Safe and easy, you don’t have to be logged into the website as all the heavy lifting is performed by PayPal using the PayPal interface we have all become familiar with.

The club realizes that not all RC enthusiasts want to become members of the Sundancers RC Club, they may be snowbirds or have other extenuating circumstances where paying for full membership is prohibitive. To accommodate these occasional use people, the club has decided to allow non-members use of the track, pond, and/or flight facilities for a nominal daily fee. The only requirement is that you have to be a member of ROAR, NAMBA, or AMA to cover yourself and club for insurance purposes. There will be no exceptions to ROAR, NAMBA, or AMA coverage, and this information will be verified before you are given permission to use the facilities. Nonmembers will be visually identifiable as “legal” users to the Sundancers RC Club membership once payment is received via PayPal or cash. If using PayPal, keep your invoice on your smartphone for verification.

It took a while, but the Sundancers RC Club has entered the 21st century! Look for the PayPal buttons and leave your cash at home.

It is now February 19, 2016, and the FAA now requires registration of all model aircraft weighing greater than 7 ounces (250 grams for our metric folks) and less than 55 pounds.  According the FAA, existing model aircraft (e.g., fixed wing, helicopter, multicopter, gliders, etc.) must be registered prior to its first outdoor flight.  Once the pilot is registered, the same registration number can be used for all of his/her models.   

Sundancer RC Club members will not be required to show proof of FAA registration to any club member, club officer, or club members on the BOD. However, the FAA (or their representatives) can ask to see proof of registration.

Here is a direct link to register your butterdrone, or any other sUAS you may have.
