MARCEE Minnesota Area R/C Electric Enthusiasts
H.H.H. Metrodome Flying Rules & Parking Information (updated 10/8/2012):
Current AMA is required, checked, and double checked.....no exceptions! Renew now - faxes from AMA will be accepted as proof of membership.
No gas powered aircraft. Electric models only.
20/20 rules apply (no more than 20oz. and/or 20mph). The Contest Director (CD) has final say.
The use of Spread Spectrum radios is strongly encouraged.
There will be no frequency board or transmitter impound. 72MHz fliers must police themselves. Dual conversion receivers are highly recommended.
Cost will be $10 per person payable to the CD to offset insurance and other costs.
MARCEE members and their guests are welcome to come and fly. We have also invited the MRCSS and the Free Flight group to come and if they have an Indoor plane, we will let them fly. Remember that current AMA is required for guests too!
If you fly more than than a few sessions as a guest we'll ask you to join MARCEE. Annual membership dues are $15. It's the best deal in town.
Spectators are welcome to watch at no charge.
There will be 8 flight stations spread out along one side of the field. The configuration may change depending on the activities of dome staff or at the CD's discretion.
Micro Helis are welcome (ex: eFlite Blade CX2, mSR, mCPX, and other similarly sized models). A separate electric helicopter area will be identified.
Due to safety and property damage concerns, 450 and larger sized helis are prohibited (sorry!)
No charging of any battery on the turf of the Metrodome. Charging shall be on the warning track or the concrete, with a wooden, masonite or similar board to protect the underlying surface from damage.
The seats in the Metrodome are blue. If your model is blue you may have difficulty seeing it at times.
Please be friendly and courteous to the Metrodome staff.
Parking is free in the reserved lot on the east end of the Metrodome. The driveway is just north of the intersection of 5th St and 11th Avenue. It goes down to the Loading Dock and up to the parking lot. You want to drive up the ramp/driveway and park in spaces numbered 338 thru 413. There is a small building at the top of the ramp/driveway with a door to stairs leading down to the loading dock and to the Halsey Hall Room. The guard at the loading dock can tell you how to get down to the playing field.
