You may have to enter several cities or ZIP codes since you are asking for a broad area.
BTW when searching for a specific city make sure the search engine returns one in California. When I searched for Long Beach California I got one in Mississippi and one in New Jersey. There is a Long Beach in each of those states.

I fly at El Dorado right where the 605/405 meet. There's a fee to get in the gate of the park, or yearly.

Plus "map" function http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/maps.php?

What area do you live in?

You are right there, likely only a mile or two. All kinds of electrics in the A.M. And some helis and High Performance in the afternoon....that's when I go....but not this Sunday

There are some great guys out there at both times more than willing to help, don't be shy.

Have fun, Bill

When I know I'm going again, I will shoot you a PM.
