Question
West Phoenix AZ, Any DS sites around?

I have relocated to West Valley of Phoenix AZ. All I see is what appears to be crazy good DS sites but with a LOT of ROCKS. Are there any known sites at the moment anyone care to share?

I'm very lucky to live in Tucson,Az. as we have "A" mountain AKA Sentinel Peak Park. I've never seen it done there but Brian Agnew did a few orbit's with his F3B ship but the airframe wasn't tight enough to go any faster. Yes sadly there are rock's on the "A" as well but I've landed on the road and other smoother area's too. The only grassey hill I've flown on is Green's Peak near Show Low, and I consider it slope nirvana. I never hear much about sloping in Phoenix, sadly.

Howzit I just was talking about you with your combat buddy (Pete??) that flys/gives lessons at Palomar RC down at the beach. Hope you get some DSing out there.

White Tanks are in my back yard almost !!

It will be a while as I am still in the unpacking phase. Once I get the family squared away I'll get something built. Sadly now, I tossed my old beat JW as I would not mind it hitting a few rocks. I do have my trusty Moth though..HMMM..

Soon I hope

Settling in to the new house, once I get somewhat sorted out I'll be looking at some slopes I've seen on the South WhiteTanks...
