Okay I gotta ask. RC planes were banned from that dirt lot a couple of years ago after an incident The Park & Rec, or LA City. posted several signs all along that area that showed a silhouette of an airplane and the signs stated :Model Aircraft Flying Prohibited and had some Ordinance number.

So, has the City rescinded the ban?

Have guys just said "screw it" and ripped down the signs?

I would love it if the field were "legit" again for r/c flying. I started flying in that same dirt lot back in 1974!

The field had plenty of people out this past Sunday. No one asked them to leave. Even had a nice big gas plane flying around.
I don't fly, but I can see them from the dock, plenty of park rangers were around. My guess is they would be the ones to enforce any ban on flying in the park.

Chances are good that Jay Leno was there. He usually hits the local car and motorcycle shows.

I thought I spotted Rik driving that speedboat when it flew by us.

Sounds like a great day at the lake with friends. You guys have the life.

The vintage Triumph motorcycle is great.

Thanks for the pics and reports.
