What is DualRates?
DualRates is a one-stop shop for all of your RC club's information needs. We provide you with a simple set of tools for managing your club, allowing you to keep your website up-to-date and doing so in less time than ever before.
What do I get for free?
As a free service, your club will be listed in our online directory:
  • searchable list of clubs with contact information and website links
  • map of locations (sites & fields) with information and directions
  • calendar of public events
What else does DualRates offer?
As an additional service, DualRates can host you club's website. Again, the goal here is to provide you with all the essential tools & services you need to manage your club, including:
  • Informational Pages
  • Membership Sign-up & Management (online payments optional)
  • Automated AMA Membership Verification
  • Club Calendar
  • Members-only Area
  • Newsletter Publishing
  • Photo Galleries
  • Personalized Look & Feel
  • Email Distribution
  • Website Pop-Up Alerts (i.e. special announcements or field closings)
  • Simplified Club & Website Administration
Is it easy to switch my website to DualRates?
Since most club websites contain mostly static pages, the process of switching is pretty easy and can be done in a day or two. If you're not sure how to do this, we'll be glad to help.
How will our members benefit from us joining DualRates?
Being a member of a club, there's nothing worse than missing an event becuase you didn't know about it or showing up for an event, only to find out it was cancelled. By making it easier to keep your website up-to-date and improving how you share information, your members will have a better experience being a part of your club. Also, any members who belong to multiple clubs that are hosted by DualRatescan share their profile across all associated clubs.
Are there other DualRates clubs that I can view?

Is my information safe?
DualRates is built atop the industry's leading database technology used by nearly every major corporation to protect everything from sensitive financial information to medical records. All information is secure and encrypted and access is explicitly controlled by each member. Also, any information provided will only be used for the purposes of your website. We will not sell and/or use information in any other way unless you have explicitly granted us permission.
How is DualRates different from other RC websites?
Most RC community websites are geared towards individual enthusiasts, not towards the clubs they may belong to. DualRates on the other hand is designed specifically to support your club and all of it activities. In addition to meeting all of your club's web hosting needs, we provide all of the "back office" services to help you manage your club's membership including automated AMA membership verification and online membership registration & Payments via PayPal (PayPal merchant account required).
What makes DualRates different from other web providers?
Most likely, today you are renting space on a provider's web server to host your website and that's all you get, space. You have to do all the work of creating and maintaining all of the pages using complicated tools and learning confusing HTML. This is very time consuming and can be a frustrating process, which often leads to a website's content quickly becoming outdated.
DualRates on the other hand, operates as a web service designed specifically for RC clubs. We've replaced the tedious task of having to manually edit web pages with a simple set of tools and forms that address specific areas of managing your club, making the whole process easier and less error-prone. This allows you to keep your club's information current while doing so in a fraction of the time you're spending today. All for about the same cost as what you're probably already paying.

about us...

I'm an avid RC enthusiast who, along with my son, became interested in the hobby a few years ago. That happens to be our plane in the background. I'm also an Information Technology (IT) professional with over 25 years experience. As my son and I were first getting involved in the hobby, I was surprised at how challenging it was to find information about clubs/programs in our area and how the information I found was often inaccurate or outdated. So, I decided to leverage my IT background to help improve the online experience for the RC community by taking some of the guesswork and time spent out of managing an RC club.
This project is purely a labor of love and is my small contribution back to the hobby. The annual cost of using my service is only to cover my costs of operating the site and a little extra to support our "RC Habit". I'm happy to help and always looking for new ideas, so if you want help getting your current site moved over to DualRates or have an idea of what you'd like to see added to the service, feel free to get in touch with me.
Regards,
Jeff
