About Our Club

Victorian Association of Radio Model Soaring Inc. (VARMS) was formed in 1968 to get together aero-modellers who were interested in building and flying radio controlled gliders. Members fly at many places, but have a “home” field, within the Knox Regional Sports Park (South Wantirna) some 60 metres west of the rear of the State Basketball Centre- Entrance is off George Street, where Training Classes with dual controlled gliders are held typically every second Sunday from 10am to 1pm (except January and Total Fire Ban days). Refer to our calendar for glider training dates.

VARMS organizes regular competitions in both Slope and Thermal Soaring, from fun-fly, scale, open competition and self launching (electric) gliders.

General Meetings are held on the SECOND FRIDAY of each month (except January) at the VARMS Clubroom, and Flying Field, near State Basketball Centre (as above) and, during daylight saving time, there may be limited flying allowed before Meeting starts at 8.00pm. Visitors are welcome. Formalities are usually followed by lively discussions on matters of interest to all modellers followed by a cup of your favourite brew.

VARMS is affiliated with the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) The World Air Sports Federation.
