Orwell Model Helicopter Club

Orwell Model Helicopter Club is BMFA affiliated and has been established for over twenty years. We have a great mix of members with varying abilities, from complete beginners to some accomplished 3D pilots. Whilst predominantly a helicopter club, multi-rotor (drone) fliers are also welcome.


If you are a complete beginner looking to get into the hobby our members are all to happy to give advice on all aspects of building, setting up and flying helicopters. We also have a resident instructor who will be able to help you take your first steps into flying Remote Control Helicopters and progress you all the way to your BMFA A & B certificates.
