PostSubject: New RC Tank arrival   Sat Aug 11, 2018 5:24 pm

Hello all! Im new to the RC tank world, I have owned my first 1/16 scale tank for about a yr. and a half now and have been upgrading since.... and now looking for battlefield competitions near my home location which is near Detroit Michigan... after further research of locations ontario was the closest to me about 4hr. drive time which really sucks!! but never the less I would love to attend one at a furture time.
I use to play w.o.tanks all the time but wore myself out and now just enjoy the rc level when I get the chance. Looks like every battle that takes place at the clubs battlefield you have to have the tamiya battle system upgrade which is something I dont have at the moment, Im still hoping they develop a airsoft 6mm paintball round for the battletanks? crossing my fingers and hope it is created? Look forward to hearing from any members about upcoming battle locations near Michigan if at all possible? 
Keep on Tanking

Thanks for the welcome Doug, 
Today was a good day so let me tell you a story about how I found your RC Club website. I started off by purchasing upgrades for my tank this morning, so my fiance decided to look up tank clubs in Michigan and google brought her to the site called Frag RC Club! So on the webpage was a little google map for that club which was located in Littleton Colorado. Well what a coincidence, it just so happened to be right near a Hotel that we were going to at in September for a vacation in Colorado! So after reseaching Frag RC Club website I was blown away by the outdoor battlefield recreation site him and his members created so I thought to myself I gotta see this and visit while were there on Vaction right! So my fiance tells me to call him and set up a visit time because he listed his phone number on his site and I did. I called Paul he is the admin. and Commander of his Club, we talk for awhile and I tell him I wish there was a club closer to Michigan so he remembers Can-Am Rc club and thats why Im here today!
Good to hear you have two members from ohio it would be a better opportunity for me to car pool depending on where they live of course
I would travel into canada from Detroit to get there....closer

Greetings Will!

Yes, FRAG has a beautiful field! Took them 18 years to get it to that state. I talk to Paul off and on...

Yes, it is a bit of a jaunt for you. We have a couple of members in the Windsor area who make the trek. To make it worthwhile you might consider our battle weekend in Kitchener in Sept. in conjunction with the largest R/C aircraft show in Canada. Great weekend of fun and lots to see and do... Very Happy

Here is the video Hach did of last years show...

Welcome Shooter!
 
Fellow tanker from the States. All of the Can-Am battlefields are a lot of fun. Each has it's own challenges. Great group of guys and gals make the drive well worth it!

I've been to the AAF a couple times as well. Their indoor field has its own appeal. A quite a bit longer drive though!

Cheers and looking forward to seeing you soon!

Get to know the guys in Windsor. They are a great bunch. Airbrushler is a terrific painter. He did some painting for me.And Derek and his daughter Scout.She is equal to any guy on the battlefield.
