Looking for a concrete or tarmac Runway
I'm located in Ballina and prepared to travel up to 2 hours to find a concrete or tarmac runway. Why? I just want to see what it is like taking off and landing on a level and hard surface.
I have taken off on roads and basketball courts many times but roads are mostly curved for water run off (makes it challenging to land a plane that has rear steer) and basketball court generally has some nice little obstacles to avoid.
I see lots of youtube videos mostly in the states where RC pilots are taking off on nice solid runways - I'm envious!
Even if you think of somewhere nowhere near Ballina, feel free to mention it. I may do a mission one day to that location :-)
Thanks for any input/help you can provide!

Find a concrete cricket pitch and when it is vacant go for it. I think that will test your T/O landing skills to the max.
Don't forget to post a vid.

Go and see the guys at the Evanshead club they use the old airbase runway.
I also think that people have flowen off the casino runway as well don't know who to get in touch with though.
If you do go to Evans DO NOT JUST ROCK UP AND HAVE A FLY they have very strict rules imposed on them by the council.

It's about time we came to some sort of arrangement regarding weekend use of your facilities for RC. The East/West runway would suffice. We are a dedicated group of hobbyists, bound by a shared appreciation of all things aeronautical, and by our CASA persecution complex (you may be able to relate).
Yours in anticipation,

P.S. The heli guys want some space too, and we'd like them out of our hair, so feel free to designate some crappy unmaintained corner as the 'helicopter area'."
