Not unreasonable, yet fields which are not designated clubs eg. Whalan, Ermington, Jamison Park etc.. do not charge fees as such; simply fly when you want to (but within rules and regulations). I'm sure there are advantages of joining a club but I just want people to be aware of the costs associated with that particular field / club and to have the option of going to say a park without costing anything. As you know, its a great and expensive hobby (highly addictive) and it all adds up.
It gets off topic, however notwithstanding the cost of clubs if you want to fly bigger planes, or fly in competitions, or improve a club has a lot to recommend them.

Wow! Thanks Steve, appreciate the list. I'll try and get more info on the Sydney ones and put them on the first post.

Still interested in flying fields (non clubs) as well. How about some pictures.

I made some enquiries on two of the clubs listed by Steve Wenban, Bankstown City Radio Control Flyers and Rotary Flight Club of NSW.

The Bankstown City Radio Control Flyers Club flys control line, fixed wing and helis at Kelso Park, East Hills. Unfortunately, Harold has advised me that this field is shared with the cricket / soccer players so its the case of fly when the field is not occupied. More often the case, the pilots don't get the chance on the weekends as the field is occupied.

The Rotary Flight Club of NSW is based in Liverpool and currently has no flying field. Apparently, they were flying on private property which until recently, has not been looked after, consequently tall thick grass and weeds has put a stop to the flying in that area. There is no flying at the moment till they can get in touch with the owners of the property.

Hi Ricksta,

From what I understand, its a couple of guys flying there at the moment, so its definately not a club. Hopefully, they will get a couple of more people to join them and it may turn into one.

So far my list is predominately clubs but I am hooping that people will provide more RC friendly flying fields which don't cost anything to fly there.
