Los Banos light DS Fun

Well DSing the small hill is nothing new at Los Banos Creek reservoir if the wind conditions are right. My buddy Steve and I started DSing the little hill when we arrived which was smooth and fast but unfortunately the wind shifted and my GoPro battery was dead when I launched. Sorry no video of the hill. However, after a small charge I had enough battery to record the point, my other Banos DS spot. I've flown this spot for many years with foam and 60" composites. Its slow fun DSing but I enjoyed it with my Wizard.

That was cool. It took me awhile to figure out where exactly you were DSing but then I realized you cut out your walk over from the LZ. I haven't been to Los Bańos in years I heard they started locking the gate.

The park rangers will open the gate for paying visitors and state park pass holders. Visitors must drive down to the park kiosk/pay station and they will unlock the gate. I spoke to the Sargent park ranger two weeks ago and he said there were many unpaying visitors, gate chains cut and some urgent responses calls but nothing RC related in the past. The park officials welcome the RC pilot folks and will often engage with us. I often thank them for allowing us the privilege to access the park for our enjoyment. Appreciation can go a long way right
