Flying in Florida

Anyone around Tampa, FL flying some foam parkflyers? So far everytime it hit a park its been cloudy and the wind kicks up 10-15mph... which my zagi penetrates pretty well but i get about 15 feet or more up and i'm hittin some nasty air. Maybe its cause i'm all of, like, 10 feet above sea level.... its pretty much a standard zagi 400-X... except without the canopy, it uhhhh, was slightly damage on its maiden flight..... so i keep it off now cause it prolly does more harm then good... I have noticed each park has its own "hot spots" for bad air that alwasy seem to be there. I found a decent park but i got kicked out because the motor was "scaring the horses", state park so they can do that... i didn't care for the smell anyways.

Well anyways, anyone stormin parks or school yards in the tampa area gimme a shout, not many people flyin foam, or anything else come to think of it.....

I am on the other side of the state in Melbourne Beach, but I notice that in the early morning the air is calmest. It is winder on the beach side than farther inland. I usually drive about 15 to 20 minutes inland on days that I can't fly beachside at the school and it is usually calm enough to fly. I find new construction housing sites that the streets are in but no houses where I am flying. It is good to have a friend along, I bring my daughter who is learning to fly.
