Hey Heli,

This is the smaller field that I have to fly in during the weekdays, most of the time. I use dirt patch #1 most times in the morning, with the AM wind direction. I could also use #3, but it's not as close a set up area for parking. All four have 1 story high backstop fences. In the early mornings, I take off from #1, headed towards #2. Then walk to #2 while flying, so that I can land as the plane come in from the #1 area to the #2 area.

In the afternoons, the wind can come from either direction. And I mean generally, from either direction, as it's rarely spot on running north to south or vice versa.

Another consideration later in the day, is where the sun is -- and how badly it will effect me on take off and landing... Wen it is sunny in the early morning, often I take off from #1, then walk to the right, where the trees are still shielding that area from the sun. Then I can fly without being blinded. But when landing time comes, I have to walk to #2 as I slowly get more and more into the unshaded area of the field, but just have to make the best of it. Lol!
