Pro - Support of the hobby and flying field. Con - You have to pretend the to understand your friends desire to fly electric, that's just wrong. Pro - You get to meet funny people like me. Con - You may have to wait your turn to fly. Pro - You get to fly with other people.

Used to fly by myself and there were moments where you would look around and wonder... did anybody see that?!?! LOL
PRO:
A true club works together to maintain a place to fly, enjoys each others involvement as a hobbyist, and continues promote model aviation by supporting those involved (training, parts, gain knowledge or insight about the hobby, and to challenge each others abilities in the name of good fun in the form of heckling). This is a place of fun and happiness with other rc pilots to learn from.


CON:
There really isn't a CON if you keep this saying in mind: "At the end of the day, all we ever want to do is go have some fun and fly our airplanes" Keep it FUN! And for crying out loud be nice!


You learn so much from other people, and it's an absolute joy to be a part of a like minded group of hobbyists.

Iím fortunate that we have many excellent pilots that have taught me much. The 2 gents Iím thinking of are IMAC World Champs and will almost give you the shirts off their backs to help. Also the best flying facilities require that you be a member of the AMA and the club.
