The wasp insignia was formed over 50 years ago, before any current members can recall, and has traditionally carried on with numerous club name variations ever since.
Early years of model flying were done anywhere there was a vacant patch of land. (There weren’t as many houses back then).Parks were a favourite as they were often mown by local councils.
As models and equipment got more sophisticated, and sometimes a little louder, the club needed to find a more permanent site.
With gratitude to the late Keith Milwain for his endeavours,a new patch of land become available on the John Mitchell-Hill property on the highway south of Muswellbrook.
Half a dozen or so modellers with their little push mowers started going around and around forming a large neatly (well as neat as one would expect from a cow paddock) mown circuit from which they could fly their control line models.
As time moved forward, so did the club and it's members and more land was cleared and utilised for the ever growing popularity of radio control and large free flight models.
The club over the years has become popular with many visitors, and has hosted many local, Hunter Valley and state title competitions.
