Yes, this is at my club field (CORCS); one reason I joined AMA/local club (which is 99% nitro/gas) was once I decided I was going to fly bigger and faster stuff, public spaces weren't the right venue, even though there's plenty of that here and thankfully not much restrictions either. Photo as attached is of the club field, with the buildings-in-progress lot just across the road. The site is home to the new National Weather Center at the University of Oklahoma.

For the maiden I was a tad too nervous and busy with the plane to really put it thru its pace, but I think I noticed much less vert. than expected (then again I might have to cycle the pack couple more times, brushes are worn a bit, and there was significant vibration at 75% or more throttle - most of my flt was at 1/2 throttle or so).

fwiw I have a couple of better AP of my various flying sites at the gallery:
