Anyone near Orland Park, Illinois?

Mokena? Palos? Anywhere in the far SW Chicago suburbs,.. or am I all alone here?

What do you mean by "good guys" is that a club or are you refering to people in general?

Palos RC Flying Club.

I joined in,.... well a LONG time ago. Since then, at least two other clubs have sprung up at the same flying field (107th and LaGrange) and there has always been a little friendly competition between clubs (althogh Palos RC is the best! ).

Stop by 107th and LaGrange Road (SW corner)one of these days. You will NOT be sorry!
Everyone in the club(s) may "fly" at the field, BUT practically everyone is into ANYTHING RC!

Go there over the next three days, especially Sept. 2nd & 3rd. You'll see PLENTY of RC helicopters!


Seriously, you will not be sorry!

Nice! Oak Forest here. I've got a few RC buddies in the Orland, Tinley, Frankfort area.

We've got some SWEET flying spots... Never got into the designated areas (Too congested/Too Many Rules IMHO)

What do you guys normally fly?

I've been trying HARD to find an indoor place large enough for electric helicopters (or whatever flying, rolling, crawling, or floating RC gizmo someone may show up with).

I almost had something worked out with the owner (realtor) of the old KMart/Treasury building on the NW corner of 111th & Cicero,.. but they decided to tear it down last month.

Oh yeah? That would've been sweet!

We're big on EDFs. We've got a couple FPV gliders, but mostly planes. Can't wait to bring out the new birds come Spring time.
