Welcome to the Sundancer's RC Club Website
Welcome to the website for the Sundancers RC Club.
We are a growing community of radio controlled enthusiasts. Our facilities are located in west St. Lucie county and cover all major RC disciplines, from flying to boating to off-road racing. The Sundancers RC Club is a private members only playground.
Club membership offers a number of benefits. The main benefit is use of the club’s facilities. All of the facilities are maintained by the club dues and event income. In addition to paying club dues, all members must be insured by at least one of the following:
- The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) for all things that fly, float, or roll on the ground.
- ROAR for all things with wheels on the ground (or that occasionally end up turtled after a bad jump!). In order to participate in ROAR sponsored races, the drivers must have ROAR insurance (AMA will not cover insurance requirements during racing events).
- NAMBA for all things that ride on (or under!) the surface of a body of water. In order to participate in NAMBA sponsored races, the boat capitans must have NAMBA insurance (AMA will not cover insurance requirements during racing events).
Our radio control park has a 1000 feet grass East-West runway, a 500 feet grass North-South runway, and a large pond for the float flying/boating modelers, and now after much hard work, an oval and off-road car track is in place and is open events. Additionally, we have electric power at the facility available for charging batteries.
You will find our Location, club contacts, and more information about the club within the website.
Come on out and join us. Visitors are always welcome. When you are ready to join the club, visit the Join Us tab above.

Notice of Proposed Rule Making and FAA Remote ID Requirements
"FAA! We got a report of an ID-less non-registered DRONE!"
The FAA has issued their Notice of Proposed Rule Making to inform the public of the Rules they want to enact concering remote ID requirements for remote control airplanes and drones. They are currently incorporating many of the comments received by stakeholders, including hobbyists. The good news is that our hobby looks like it will survive Big Government!
No, it is not only a concern for quadcopters, this affects everything over 250 grams that flies. This article won't attempt to provide a "Cliff's Notes" easy to digest outline of tte rules, the job has been done already and can be read here.
We have one of the nicest flying facilities in the area. With a grass 500 feet North-South runway and a grass 1000 feet East-West runway pilots will always find an open flight station. Each runway has a covered pavillion, and the main runway pavillion has a gas grill, electric fans, spot lights, and a flight simulator set up for care-free practice with the "reset" button.
Noise restrictions are not much of a concern at the club as there are no neighbors to annoy out in the country. Loud mufflers? Who cares! The North-South runway is primarily used for helicopter and multirotor flying, with most fixed wing aircraft taking place on the East-West runway. The best part is that the sun is at your back pretty much all day.
If it flys, bring it out. Electrics, nitro, gas, giant scale, foamies, helis, multicopters, we do it all.
Welcome to the Treasure Coast's only outdoor off road race track. Weather permitting, the track is open only for sponsored events. So bring out your 1/10 scale buggies, truggies, and short course trucks as well as 1/8 scale buggies.
We have a covered pavilion next to the floating dock for our boating and float flying enthusiasts. The post is well-stocked, and fishing is allowed - but don't take what you catch - catch and release only! Occasionally, we get a croc or two in the pond, so keep a keen eye when out by the water.
