Welcome to the webpage of the Halifax RC Park. Below this introduction you’ll find the most recent blog posts of all sorts of RC car happenings in and around HRM, including the activities at the free-to-use Halifax RC Park. The menus at the very top of the page give some more static information about who we are and how you can help, what the RC park is, how you can get into the hobby, and what local groups and clubs are there to share your fun, and when they meet and where. RC cars come in all shapes, sizes, speeds, complexity, and prices so there really is a vehicle for everyone.
Just a little reminder that Halifax RC Park will have a stand of RC cars to see at the Halifax Public Library this Saturday from 9:30am – 2pm as part of the Engineering Month Public Display. If the weather cooperates, then we’ll also be running them outside behind the library. Come say hi and talk to us about the hobby of RC cars.
There’s a great article and video on the CBC website today about RC racing in PEI. Doesn’t it look like fun?
Don’t forget to come and see us at the Engineering Month Public Show on March 25th at the Halifax Central Library.
March is National Engineering Month and RC car’s are all about science and engineering. On Saturday 25th March, the Halifax Central Library is hosting a Engineering Month Public Display from 9:30am until 2pm. The event is free to attend and we’ll be there with a selection of radio controlled cars among the other stands of science and engineering themes. Come out and learn more about the hobby of RC cars, or just to say hi.
If you can’t make it to this show, then we’ll also be at the 19th Annual Shearwater Aviation Museum Spring Hobby Show on April 8th and 9th. Keep an eye on http://www.halifaxrcpark.com for more details in the coming week.
As usual, the events calendar, has these coming shows listed, along with other local RC events, races and trail runs. If you have an RC event you’d like to publicize then get in touch with us at email@example.com
ARCC have just started their winter indoor racing series for 2016-17, which includes painted-concrete oval racing for 1/10 electric buggies every Friday, and carpet circuit racing for both 1/10 and 1/18 4WD electric touring cars every other Sunday at the Legion in Enfield. The guys at Mighty Small Cars have the full details, and can help you out with appropriate tires.
The touring cars run foam tires, 2S lipo packs and typically brushless motors (although brushed equipment is probably allowed too). The doors open at noon every other Sunday starting on 6th Nov 2016. Full calendar available here and a few more details in the image below.
The 1/10 buggies run rubber road-treaded/slick tires on a concrete oval circuit using 2S lipo and brushless motors. They started last Friday (14th October 2016) but the full calendar is available here and a few more details are in the image below.
One of the local RC guys has been putting on a little RC car demonstration at this full-scale car show for the past few years, and this year some of us from Halifax RC Park will be there to join him. We’re looking forward to talking RC with anyone who is curious about the hobby. (In short, it’s fun, social, family friendly and anyone can do it!).
Hope to see you there.
One of the regulars at HRCP has organised another Wicked Wednesday session for all types of off-road RC vehicles. Whatever you have, bring it along and have some fun with some like-minded people. It’s sure to be a blast.
More details here on kijiji.
The Halifax RC Drifters (HRCD) shared their RC demonstration area with a few of us from the Halifax RC Park society. We all had a great time talking to you about the RC hobby and we hope you’ve found your way here to our website which has some great information for beginners in our menus above. Below are a few photos from the show and the HRCD crew have more photos on their Facebook group.
