Have a look at:

http://www.chchsoar.org.nz/

Click on the "Content" menu and then select "flying sites".

There are great flying sites all around the hills of Christchurch. The best ones for composite model landing sites are:
- Allendale
- John Britten Reserve
- Worsley Spur to a lesser extent.

You could post questions on the chchsoar club forums and arrange to meet people. There is an EPP 60 inch race this Sunday 3 October 2004. Meet in front of Princess Margaret hospital at Noon. We then pick a site and drive in convoy.

Regards.

That's a great resource. But it's somewhat embarassing that there are more NZ sites than Australian sites posted in the database! Maybe a few more of us need to get involved and submit some sites...

Yeah agree, but NZ is the main place in your region, Oz is just a backwater ....also only two sites in the UK so far . I have another couple to add but no pictures yet. The site seems to get some hits as we recently had some Texan's visit the slope I posted.
