kormac, I'll be there also. Question; is that flying site used by the local E flyers daily or did you have to make special arrangements for this event?

Thanks! Looking forward to the race. The reason for the question about the field is because my wifes business gets us up to Reno several times a year and when we drive up I usually stick one or two of my slowflyers in the car and fly them at various sites around town including the club field north of town and until last month the Convention Center parking lot (being ripped up for something). When I have asked at your local Hobby shops about E flying sites around Reno they always tell me about the club field but nothing else. Thanks again!

About the clubs knowing about an e-flying field... most of the local reno shops know about the main gas field RRCC with regular runways... The local shops aren't much into electrics.. even though there are lots of fliers that are.

We've only been flying at Rancho in Reno for the 5-6 months.. Some members of other RC clubs come and fly there on and off for lunch. (we fly 'almost' every lunch

L8r! Phil

Yeah, every day somebody's out there from 9:30 to about 1:00. Funny how lunch seems to last for 3 and a half hours around here.

Typical scene too - a bunch of cars and trucks with their hoods up and everyone looking aimlessly to the sky!!!

BTW, the shops around here really haven't been on the leading edge of e-supplies, so they probably won't know about the growing electric group here either.

Several of us go to the RRCC paved runway field north of town for our landing gear models, but for hand/bungee launch setups, you'd be hard pressed to beat the wide open nature of this grass/hay field.

I just got ahold of a Sokol. This should make it much easier for me to stay on the course. I still have the Stinger and fly it for fun but for now I'm going to put most of my time into the Sokol. I'll see you all there.
