Where are you moving to in California? Someone here might be able to give you suitable flying locations, and possibly local contacts, if they know where you are going.
Also, If your model seems to stall when flying into the wind (and you are sure the balance is correct), try adding some down trim (one click at a time). The amount of down trim needed will vary depending on the wind speed. This will increase your models flying speed, and when you are out of the lift you will have to pull back slighty to maintain level flight.
