29 Palms - High Desert - RC Glider


I am new to this forum and to this hobby. Right now, I try to figure out if there are any RC glider pilots in this area (29/Yucca/Palm Springs). I try to get some connections and guidance to have a great time with RC glider.

Thanks for your input.

I don't no any clubs here

I seems to be that we have the same problem. I'd prefer to make the first steps with some experienced flyers... . But I think I'll be on my own. What glider do you have?

One update on my last post. I heard about a place close to Joshua Tree/Yucca Valley, there is supposed to be a dry lake and some guys are flying there on weekends. Haven't seen it yet and met somebody. And there should be something close to Palms Springs. I think I have to check this out.

Yuma Area?

Hi Everyone, I have a retired friend who came out and watched me fly my gliders and he got turned on to it. He goes to Yuma for 6 months each winter and was wondering if there are any glider clubs in the area. Are there any? If so could you let me know and I'll pass on the info to him. Thanks. Ray
