I guess im one of the few of us that likes dfc1 in its current config. Its an easy pattern and the street is nice.
But dfc2 has grown on me. I cant wait to test my flip fpv quad there.

DFC-1 works out ok for larger planes and stuff that can eat up a lot of sky in a hurry, DFC-2 works out much better for smaller park fliers, DLG's, belly landers and probably helis.

Regarding 1 vs 2, the end is really near at 1... I really hate to even admit it.

I like 1 for the following reasons:
~closer
~I've grown comfortable with the airspace and landing pattern
~I get to fly the bigger stuff- probably the EF 70" Extra gets the most there, but I feel comfortable going bigger.

Problem- both the new buildings currently house tenants, I feel it is only a matter of time before someone complains and we are told to scram. It will be a shame considering how welcome the other neighboring persons have made us feel.


No real thoughts on DFC2 as I have only flown there once. For now, it is just further but I am sure it will be an eventual home. My only impression after flying there my first time was that I felt like flying from the bottom of a fish bowl.

Thanks! It will all come together once I get the replacement decal for the right side of fuse (logo was backwards), hood decal, and a few other items to finish out the cockpit.

Saw the review and the video Matt. Looks like it would be fun to fly in our warehouse or hangar at LZU. Have a great holiday everyone!
