UFO's over Menifee better known as Night Flying!

Did you know every first Saturday of each month beginning at dusk MVF holds night flying. That is right night flying, if you have never seen it you and your kids will love it. Our members adorn their remote control planes with led light strips and send them up into the night sky. The view is spectacular and has often been mistaken for UFO's in the past not kidding. Well if you see some bright unidentified flying objects over the foothills in Menifee come investigate. The atmosphere is friendly so come out watch and learn a little about RC aircraft. Thank you Eric Eckman for this spectacular flight of your T-28 below, I only had to duck a couple times to get the shot J/K AWESOME!

MVF Heritage Lake Float Fly Highlights 2013

MVF Heritage Lake Float Fly Highlights 2013

 Man-O-Man what a great event today. I think we had one of our best turnouts ever. If you came and watched you surely were not disappointed. I can tell you I know I have never seen so many ICON A5's in one location ready to fly. This plane has stolen the float flying market with it's cool looks and easy of use, no pontoons needed here. The retrieval tug boats put on a nice showing with plenty of recoveries for some wary pilots who found their planes in the drink and unresponsive LoL Oops maybe better flying next time. We do appreciate the effort and skill not to mention courage to try this type of flying.  We had fun and we sure hope you did too, if you missed the event take a sneak peak at some of the cool pictures below. We hope to be back next year for another great float fly event. Look for more information on the official tally and results from this event in our next newsletter.

City of Menifee Birthday Bash MSJC 2013

MVF is on a roll sharing the RC plane message. Menifee City just recently celebrated its 5th anniversary of becoming a full blown incorporated city here in Riverside County California. We were invited to place a booth at the event and share our info with fellow Menifean's about our club.  RC is alive in Menifee and we have the pilots who are willing and able to get you flying. That is the message our club President Jeff Miller shared with attendee's. The booth was staffed well throughout the event with great static displays. We saw a lot of interest from kids and adults. The birthday bash was well attended with a great band and lots of other vendors. We hope everyone had a great time like we did. See you out at the field. 



MVF 7th Annual Poker Fly Highlights...

MVF 7th Annual Poker Fly Highlights...

From all accounts Menifee Valley Flyer's 7th Annual Poker Fly was a great success. A huge thank you to all the volunteers and especially Rafael Osaba our Vice President for all the hard work.  While out at the field I was impressed with the amount of Nitro Planes I saw on the stands and flying, it was a nice throwback. Here is an unofficial tally of our winners below.

Heritage Lake Movie in the Park @ Sunrise Park

Heritage Lake Movie in the Park @ Sunrise Park

 Our club just recently had the wonderful pleasure of completing an exhibition during Heritage Lakes summer time "Movie in the Park".  Heritage Lake is a great community directly across Menifee Road to the east of our flying field. As you may already know Heritage Lake is the site of our annual float fly's. The Heritage Lake HOA continues to be a great supporter of MVF by allowing use of the gorgeous private lake and inviting members to perform during community events like the Movie in the Park. We currently have a few members who live in Heritage Lake too include none other then our very own Vice President Rafael Osaba.
