Fans of radio controlled airplanes could find everything their hearts desired on Sunday.

The Duluth-Superior Radio Controlled Model Airplane Club held its annual fundraiser, an auction featuring electric airplanes, nitro airplanes and everything a hobbyist might need.

The club formed in 1971, and Club Auctioneer John Ellestad said it brings together people from every walk of life imaginable, all for the love of flying.

"The people that are members of the club run the gambit from 'Regular Joe Six-Pack' on all the way up to lawyers and doctors," Ellestad said. "They all share the same interest: the love of flying. ... I've been in the hobby for 23 years and I've never seen a bunch of nicer people."

Ellestad said they expected about 100 people throughout the day. The proceeds went toward funding the club for the upcoming year.
