Abilene RC Society
Located in Sea Bee Park in Abilene Texas. We have a great location with easy access and some of the best facilities in West Texas. We have a 400' concrete runway, covered pits, setup tables, electricity in pits and a generous paved parking lot. Our club supports a variety of RC interest with our members having a wide range of skills and abilities. Many of our members are long time flyers and will give help and advice just for the asking.
Come join our club. Our club meetings are held at 7:00PM the first Thursday of every month at the Ben E. Keith Co. located at 2139 Cottonwood street, Abilene TX 79601.
Our club dues are just $30.00 per year which includes access to electricity at the field, club events and raffles.

We had a lot of fun at Sea Bee Park for our monthly club fun fly. The weather was great, the camaraderie was great and the diversity of aircraft types was great!
We had U-Control planes, Helicopters, Drones, Racing Quads, FPV, Planes, Gliders and even two awesome Jets. One jet clocked in at 212 mph by a radar gun and he was just cruising.
We even had a drone recovery mission locating a downed aircraft over the lake.
Lots of families with their kids spectating and having just a good time.
Come and see the latest and greatest 3D Planes and Helicopter Models flying over Seabee Park in Abilene Texas. Join us late at night as we take to the sky with our night flying Helis and Stryker Foamies.
