What's Coming





What's Been Happening

2017 Black Hills Air Rally

This was the 9th time we gathered large airplanes in our area for our big event the Black Hills Air Rally.

2017 Dakota Thunder IMAC

Dakota Thunder has been one of our annual events for many years.

2017 Results

2017 Community Appreciation Day

About three or four years ago, we made our Community Appriciation Day event into part of AMA’s National Model Aviation Day

Three Event Fun Fly

This event was a throwback to some of those fun fly’s we used to have a few years back.

2017 Frost Your Buns

The club historian may be able to tell you how far back the Frost Your Buns event goes, I can’t.

Fun Scale/Ben Roller Memorial 2016

It took a while, but we finally got the Fun Scale contest and Ben Roller Memorial event in the books...

2016 Black Hills Air Rally

The Black Hills Air Rally began eight years ago at the Buffalo Chip Campground. Over the years some things have changed, some have not. There is still a large turnout of planes and pilots, it is still a great time, and it is still a venue that draws pilots from a wide area.

2016 Dakota Thunder IMAC

I think we started our IMAC adventure back about 2008 so that means we have been pursuing this AMA special interest for about 8 years.

2016 Community Appreciation Day

The Propbuster Community Appreciation Day was Sunday, June 5th. This is a registered National Model Aviation Day event.

EAFB Discover the Hills

After considerable discussion and some digging, the talk turned into action as we hawked our wares at the Discover the Hills event for 2016.

2015 Black Hills Huckfest

From Thursday to Sunday, August 28th-30th, Black Hills Huckfest festivities took place at Propbuster Field.

UAV Workshop

We were very pleased with the UAV Workshop the Propbusters sponsored on Saturday, May 30th.
