How big is your park? If its not surrounded by tall trees, try to get a 1.5 meter dlg. The flight performance is much better than a mini dlg.

Or you can get a bee for sloping, they are so durable! Trees, no problem. Big boulder at 30mph, not a scratch

Yeah, but my park actually is completely surrounded by trees which is why that small dlg is so appealing.

AHAHAHHAAAAAAAAA

Anybody who expects an AMA-chartered club to allow you to go out onto the field and throw a plane around is absolutely nuts.


At my club, (which I don't fly at anymore, mostly for this reason), you're not allowed to step on the runway or in the field except to retrieve a crashed plane. Ever. Even if you're the only one there. I nearly got kicked out of the club for walking out onto the field to throw my radian, I was the only one flying but the grumpy old guys that come out every morning (We call 'em the Peanut Gallery) made a huge fuss over it.

Lol, I see things are quite different for you guys then.

We have a rule about not carrying transmitters onto the field when retrieving, but you can hand launch if you let the other flying know and they go up to keep you safe.

That is crap. I have a really laid back club. We have a peanut gallery too but they encoruage me to do even more stupid crap then I already do with 3D. They are nuts but I love em. There is that certain group noone likes but they are rarely there.

I haven't been to my feild yet. Only the meeting. I assume the people are nice because I met some at the hobby shop. Also, I'm pretty sure Chad ain't a cranky old man.
