Where to fly floats in SOCAL
 
Hi all,

I would love to get an icon a5 but I dont want to drive hours to a lake. Where do folks fly these things in LA?

Is there anywhere close by?

L.A. River?!? Also, as I recall there's a lake near downtown at one of the parks. There's (was?) a great rc airfield at balboa park in the valley that puddles nicely after a storm.

I've got a friend at the LHS who charms his way onto golf courses and uses their water hazards. ;)

Santa Fe Dam
 
Join the Santa Fe Dam RC Modelers and fly at the lake in Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area at the junction of the 605 and the 210 every other month.

Join the San Gabriel Valley Flyers and fly at Legg Lake (smaller) in Whittier Narrows Recreation Area once a month.

Fly at the float fly at Castaic once or twice a year.

Fly at Hucklebury Pond in Anaheim whenever you want, but no recovery boat is allowed, and it is quite a drive from Pasadena.

Thanks for the input guys.

Sounds like Legg Lake is the go.

The flying at Legg Lake is done on one specific Monday of each month and it is for members and their guests. I am not a member, but have flown there as a guest. I am sure that they would let you try it out once or twice, but you would need to be a member to continue.
