Jason Burke of Revelstoke's Radio Control Club fires up the engine on his new radio-controlled aircraft in the driveway of his Front Street home on Sunday afternoon. "This is a great hobby and it's affordable," he said. "Anyone with $300 can get a radio and an aircraft." For sure, a starter plane won't be this large but — hey! — you can always build towards it. The club is planning an air show at its airfield near Montana Slough for June that will attract pilots from around western North America. David F. Rooney photo
