Hello, New to the site and located in orangevale.

I currently fly micros for the most part, ease of quick and dirty flyin for me. I have um p-51, um polecat, and a umx sbach 342.

Im really itching for a bigger plane like the t-28 of parkzone and even an extra 300 from parkzone..

Anywho. I'm currently located in the orangevale area, and fly mostly at the community center located off hazel ave and greenback. Great place to fly, there are two baseball diamonds, grass cut field, and soccer posts.. I have not personally seen people there at all. The diamonds dirt is too soft for my planes, but I imagine a plane like the t-28 having the right wheels for that spot.

I have flown at several parks in Folsom, Coventry park for the most. Great big field, and a nice spot for the kids to play (play ground). Folsom seems to be pretty busy at the nice big parks or the sportsfields. I must have bad timing lol.

Hope to meet and fly with some soon... Who will be going out to the airfield Saturday??

Hello and welcome Nize!

If u look at the video above by squishy654 that is where some of us fly. Tons of room and no ppl around all day long. It's in Elk Grove right off hwy99.

I got the UM Beast and love it! The wind beats it up though.

Are u gonna make a plane or buy one? Save some cash and make extra 300 Free PDF plan online. (samples) Parts are super cheap and all you got to do is ask for help.

Yea that's a huge spot where he was flying. Its definitely a drive from where I'm located, but weekends would be do able to check it out.

I'd like to have one of those also, what is that cAlled how it's just thin foam? How much wind can that handle?

I really like the details of parkzone planes, so I'll end up picking up the extra 300 or t-28. What would be a dream is a big sbach, I'd love that

Oh yeah, parkzone planes are clean!

The pink foam is at home depot on sunrise and Folsom blvd is the main cross road. Blue foam board is at the greenback Lowe's. Both are the same and seem stronger then alot of materials, light weight too.

If u got time come on down and there is plenty of room for you!

Wow.. That is beautiful, I could just imagine what that would be like to have. Thanks for posting that, it's now a screen shot

Is there anyone locally who can cut the foam, with some precision, Cnc or something? I'd really like to make one of those extrA300.

You are the closest to us. How big is your park. Could I fly a great planes rifle there (in your opinion)? That thing needs space, and no people around ( like soccer practice people)
