Futaba FASST Service Advisory Posted: February 14, 2023

Posted by Webmaster in : Club News , add a comment

Here is a very important advisory for any club members who are flying with the new Futaba FASST 2.4GHz spread spectrum systems. Be aware that if your transmitter is affected your radio link could be compromised by another user with an affected Futaba FASST transmitter and cause a complete loss of control of aircraft.

According to Futaba, Mike’s Models in OKC has a testing station available.


Futaba 6EX, 7C and TM-7 Service Advisory

Updated January 30, 2023

This service advisory affects only owners of the Futaba TM-7 module and 6EX and 7C FASST systems. Each FASST transmitter contains a unique eight digit identification code, programmed at the factory to identify the respective transmitter and to allow a receiver to be paired only to that radio’s signal. Recently we have learned that a very small number of the TM-7 modules, and 6EX and 7C FASST systems were incorrectly coded with a common code number during the manufacturing process. These units were subsequently sold prior to our awareness of the situation.

If two or more units, utilizing this common identification code, were to be in use simultaneously, they may cause interference with one another. Please note: Units which utilize the correct identification code will not be affected by these units.

February Meeting Minutes
February 13, 2023

Meeting called to order at 7:03 PM

President Wayne Shalamunc (wshal@usa.net):
Jerry Church is sick tonight so there will be no treasurer’s report.

Wayne had heard from Hayk Terzyan that he would like to see some loosely organized competitions at the field this year, fun fly events and the like. Think about what events you might like to see and report back next month.

To have the Memorial Day Air Show or not… Does the club want to host an air show this year? Is it worth the work? Are there enough volunteers to make it worthwhile? If you feel strongly about this either way, please contact President Wayne at wshal@usa.net.

Tables falling into disrepair: Wayne would like to fix some of the tables and their rotting table tops. Doc proposes to look into different table designs to see if it would be worthwhile to replace them rather than repair them. His report is expected next month.

Philip DelNero will donate the workmanship and materials to fabricate a new sign for the club to put along Jenkins. He will come up with some sample renderings and we will display them on the website for feedback.

Jim Traw reminds us that a couple of members will be flying in a pattern competition at the Tulsa Glue Dobbers, coming up in March or May.

Model of the Month February 2008Model of the Month: Jerry Short wins again, this time with his Nitroplanes BobCat, pushed along with a Saito 30. He said the instructions for assembly were practically non-existant but it’s a good flyer.

Show & Tell: John Harwell brought out his super nice Satio 300 5-cylinder radial engine. It is NIB and has never been run, but he hopes to put it to use someday, if he lives long enough to retire.

Meeting adjourned at 7:47

Ice Storm Damage 2007

Thanks to the members who came to the field on Friday and helped clean up all the downed limbs from the ice storm. Wayne Shalamunec, Tyler Chapman, Patrick Kimmel and Gilbert Cano offered up their services to get the drive back open and clean up the mess.

Christmas Party Venue Change? Posted: December 7, 2022

Posted by Webmaster in : Club News , add a comment

Fellow CORCers,

We need your input on a last-minute proposal…

Dan Weber has proposed that we move the Christmas meeting next Wednesday from Red Lobster to Hideaway Pizza on Campus Corner (577 Buchanan Street).

Dan says the video projector setup at Hideaway is better and the room is larger than the one at Red Lobster. He also has the room reserved for us… He writes:

Does anyone want to move the Christmas party to Hideaway Pizza at Campus Corner in Norman? They have a nice sized back room with a projector and screen already installed. the room is large and can seat approximately 65 easily. I reserved the room (actually forgot to mention this at the november meeting) If not, that is ok too but we will need to find/make a projector screen for the red lobster venue. Then menu at Hideaway has pizza, salads, appetizers, sandwiches, and several pasta dishes, the food is pretty good.

If you are planning to attend, please send your preference to Dan at Daniel.Weber@tinker.af.mil and let him know: Red Lobster or Hideaway? Whatever your opinion on the topic, please send it to Dan so he can determine what you all want to do.

Radio Interference Update Posted: November 15, 2022

Posted by Webmaster in : Club News, URGENT NOTICES , add a comment

In July of last year, some channels in the 72MHz band were suspended from use at CORCS:

FREQUENCIES………23…….24……25……. WILL BE SUSPENDED at C.O.R.C.S. Field until further notice. These frequencies are being spiked every 10 to 20 min. Due to the unsafe characteristics of these channels, for SAFETY… I am suspending…..yes that means DO NOT USE these Frequencies at the Field until we announce that they are clear to fly again. If for any reason a member sees that you are flying any one of these channels, they will ask you nicely to not fly your aircraft. We will appreciate your help in monitoring these channels for the SAFETY of Everyone… Thank you Scott Mayberry Pres.   

Some members were inquiring about this situation and if the problems still existed. The subject was brought up at last night’s meeting. Members who check the scanners regularly said that they are still seeing a lot of “hits” on those channels.

The problem still exists and the ban remains in effect.

Please keep this in mind when flying. A new frequency board is in the works so we can more clearly mark the “no-fly” channels as such.
