Wrayford Field is located about one mile along ‘Hestow Road’, which is off ‘Brook Way’, located alongside the “Ten Tors Inn” public house (TQ12 3NP), on Exeter Road, Kingsteignton. Our location can also be viewed on Google maps (just search for Exeter and district radio control club) or enter this Plus code into the search bar HC99+6G Newton Abbot . Hestow road is a narrow lane with passing places and slow, blind bends. For detailed instructions on how to get to the flying site please contact one of the committee members who will give you directions.
No interference problems have been reported by members using either 35Mhz, or 2.4 Ghz, radio control equipment.
Because our model aircraft are flown from mown and rolled grass, wheels of less than 2 inches diameter (50mm), and fitted wheel spats, are NOT recommended. Take-offs and landings are always much easier with larger diameter, soft rubber air wheels fitted to any model.
Before any model is permitted to be flown, it must be noise tested to comply with the DoE 82 dB(A) maximum limit and any failsafe functions fitted, checked for correct operation.
All electric powered models must have a working failsafe mechanism which stops the motor on loss of the transmitter signal, as a minimum requirement.
Our permitted flying times are from 10-00 am, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Note: Only electric powered, “Quiet-Fly” models and “Silent-Fly” gliders may be flown on Sundays, and at other “noise sensitive” times.
Our Finishing Times, No Fly Days, Bank Holiday Flying Hours, and other important information, is posted on the club noticeboard, located within the car parking area.
Access to Wrayford Field by visitors is only permitted when club members are on site.
