Located in the metropolitan Detroit, Michigan area, the Ribcrackers were originally organized as a non-profit model airplane club under the auspices of the Livonia Department of Parks and Recreation. At the time, the primary emphasis was on control line flying with considerable effort given to public demonstrations of model aircraft flying to promote the hobby.
Today, we are almost exclusively a radio control club and do not enjoy the support of any municipality recreation department. We are approximately 160 in number with our primary emphasis on sports flying. Our goals are the promotion of the safe flying of radio control models and the general advancement of radio controlled flight.
We continue to devote our efforts to providing public service demonstrations and displays as part of our responsibility to the community and our public whenever possible.
