|Suburban R/C Barnstormers|
SRCB now offers two year 'round flying fields to expand our members' options! Optimize your R/C flying experience by fitting your aircraft and flying style to the field. For those who fly glow, gas or large electric powered planes your choice is our primary field, Pratt's Wayne Model Flight Field in Bartlett. You'll find us flying park flyers, powered gliders and discus launch gliders at our secondary field, Kress Creek Farms Park in West Chicago (often referred to as Manville Oaks after the original owner of the property).
There are several other open parks and local park district fyling fields in the area. Ask around at a club meeting to see where other members regularly fly.
This is SRCB's "official" field. Working in conjunction with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County SRCB has created a space for flying some of your biggest, fastest, and highest performance models. The paved runway is paralleled by six fence-protected pilot's stations. There is a portable toilet facility, some picnic tables for rest and lunches, and several work and setup stations for prepping larger models.
This is our secondary field, mostly used for smaller park flyers and sailplanes. The park is part of the West Chicago Park District. We-Go Parks insists on electric models only at this park because it is lined with residences.
