Arizona: Fly radio-controlled aircraft this weekend in Oro Valley.

Members of the Sonoran Desert Flyers will help folks learn to use electric-powered, radio-controlled model aircraft this weekend at Naranja Park, 660 W. Naranja Drive.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday.

Members of the group will help people assemble and fly their model airplanes.

Loaner planes will be available to fly for people who do not own a plane.

Free beverages, snacks and door prizes will be provided.

The event is presented by the Sonoran Desert Flyers in partnership with the Academy of Model Aeronautics and Oro Valley parks and recreation.
