Beautiful paved runway and very nice shelter. Located behind the former Indiana Boys School. A skilled group of flyers who offer fun events during the year. Plainfield is southwest of Indianapolis. You can get to the field going out US 40. Flashers on when you enter the prison area.
This club used to fly right next to the Colts Complex off 56th Street. Today, they have a great location up next to Terry Airport on SR 32 north northwest of Indianapolis. I've only flown there once, but I was greeted warmly and really enjoyed the club members.
Great news! A new R/C club in central Indiana! The Northeast Side Taildraggers are centered around the McCordsville area northeast of Indianapolis. They are a young club of enthusiastic modelers but growing every day and always looking for new members! AMA membership is required of course.
Their flying field is located southeast of Greenwood. I belonged to this club for several years when I lived on the south side of Indianapolis. A great club and they really put on some nice events throughout the year.
The Johnson County Radio Control club flies out of Tracee Field in Johnson County Park, across from Camp Atterbury, Edinburgh, Indiana. Their site is one of just a few in the area that offers a "hard surface" runway, 570'x40' blacktop or if you prefer grass a 700'x50' runway. Many of their members are also members of other area clubs including Indy area clubs. Great website at www.jcrcf.net
The above link is the only web-based information I was able to find on the Indy Sportliners. They have been around for many years flying around the Fort Benjamin Harrison area mostly. I've even attended some of their contests over the years. The Indy Sportliners usually have a great Swap Meet around late March or early April each year. Look for handouts at the local hobby shops.
Hoosiers R/C flyers are very fortunate to have the main organizing body of R/C aviation, the Academy of Model Aeronautics, located in Muncie! AMA has over 1000 acres dedicated to our hobby! Great events week after week and month after month. Go to their website to find out more! Here's a separate link to the International Aeromodeling Center : Click Here. The museum on site is super!

Held in Champaign, Illinois, E-Fest is a wonderful indoor flying event! Champaign is less than 2 hours drive west of Indianapolis.
Double click on the above image for a great video of E-Fest! If you have time, view the other videos this guy has posted. They are definitely a hoot!
