My local e-flight locations are at the local high school, elementary school and a decent sized field at a VA hospital in my town. I was flying the plane at the local VA. A police officer came by while I was flying. He was very interested in the plane and asked tons of questions. He said that he also wanted to get into the hobby, but was waiting until he had the time. I then proceeded to get my Soarstar stuck in a tree about 30 feet up. The cop called the maintenance crew at the VA who had a cherry picker... A bystander also gave me some rope, which I attached to a closed umbrella, and the cop and I proceeded to try to get the plane down before the cherry picker arrived, which we were able to do (with very little damage to the plane). The cop said come by anytime to fly!
