Or huge black cloth over me and the LCD tv. It may look like a ghost standing from far away lol
oh well I guess I'll fit the Halloween theme in the mean time hahaha
Funny, Jay. You can make a playhouse made out of cardboard and put in inside with you while you fly FPV, lol. Seriously, you can just put it at the trunk of your car, make a simple cardboard cover, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight. I wonder if Ruben uses a power inverter for his LED TV. New trucks now have built-in inverters.

Hi guys.
I am new to the area. If possible can someone post a list of all the areas that ppl have flown in Sac without problems. Going through this thread is a bit time consuming so if someone has a list already made that would be great.

Is Sutter's Landing a good place to fly?

Thanks

BTW I am in the midtown area of Sac.

Grant area- Hwy 99 south. Exit to Grant Line west then turn right to W. Stockton Blvd towards Bilby Road. We fly in front of the unfinished Elk Grove Mall. Lots of space...

Elk Grove is a bit far but not bad without traffic. Its the unfinished mall right by the freeway? Just looking for a bit of grass to land in.
