Welcome to the BRMFC web site

*** Temporary Field Closure ***

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has led to government restrictions on social gatherings and unnecessary travel, the Ballarat Radio Model Flying Club committee has decided as of 29th March to close the fields (Trawalla & Burrumbeet) until further notice. From time to time there may be a member or two onsite checking the security of our assets.

If you're interested in Radio Controlled model aircraft you should find this site helpful. It contains information about our club and links to other aeromodelling web sites.

BRMFC relocated to Trawalla as of 1st October 2014, corner of Nerring-Trawalla (Church) Road and the Western Highway Trawalla, 40kms by road WNW of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Prior to the move we flew at Spreadeagle Road Yendon for fourteen years.

Up until the end of April 2016 when the land was sold to the neighbouring Trawalla Estate, we shared operations with Dynamic Flight Park hang gliders and the occasional full size aircraft landing. Since then full size operations have ceased due to more intense farming of the land.

We also now have the field at Burrumbeet Racecourse following the integration of the former Golden Plains Model Flying Club into BRMFC.
