ok guys, I finally found you...

Hi I'm squishy and I wanna play too...

Where do you guys meet and when are you meeting next...I wanna bring out my foam and crash it...

I currently fly in downtown sac near old town, not much room but there's a parking lot with poles to run into near the Calpers buildings...I hate it...

I am 33, I drink a lot and I have a big mouth...I fly like crap and my planes are crap...

I have a parkjet I built from rcpowers plans I have been itching to fly...you guys know you wanna watch me crash it...

I will go back and read the whole thread and find out where you guys are, but if it's not in here shoot me a pm...

Where do you live in sac? I live right next to CSUS and have been on the lookout for some good places close by to fly.

Squishy,

This is where we are flying, and some of us fly regularly on Sunday Mornings.

We park along in the "dead end" spaces on this strip of road, and use the road as a runway (And Heli-Pad).

The location is pretty good (Not Perfect, but hey, no memberships required) and the local police who are frequently in the area DO NOT mind us at all. One Officer had me dive bombing his squad car to see if his Radar could get the speed of it.

The "Main" road is very lightly traveled, and our planes do not really overfly it, except a little while coming around to land.

One of the only things we have to worry about out there is that we are flying pretty close to all of our own parked vehicles, but as long as we are mindful of that and careful it should never really be an issue.

Squishy,

Welcome, welcome...feel free to join up! Feel free to crash, too! LOL! We have one light post that is notorious for grabbing planes out of the sky (ask me or Jay how you can avail of that free service, LOL ).

I believe we even call hitting the Light Pole: "Pulling a Gent" now

Weather does not look so great for tommorow.

I have thought about flying the Heli underneath HWY 50 nearby my house, it just has a big empty parking lot under it. But I figure the cops would come and get me, completely ignoring the usual groups that hang about that area...

PS: That little tree in the divider is also quite acrobatic, and I have On Board HD Camcorder footage to prove it a few pages back! (Luckily the camera was not harmed in the making of the video...)
