Flying at the AMA Superstition Airpark


I was out this morning (Tuesday) for a while. It was really nice weather.

Not a single familiar face. I was the only electric....

This is going to take some getting use to......

I don't want to start any rants here I just want to get a feel for the AMA field from the group. I'm hearing from some other GQF members that AMA field might not be as forgiving as GQF when someone makes a mistake.

Say I fly on the wrong side of the centerline. Or maybe fly over the parking lot and hit my own car. What happens in this case? Does someone just yell at me or do I get some flying points removed?

I can read the rules but I'd like to hear what really happens?

Not sure what would happen........but, I have your back

As far as the flying out there, it appears to be a mixed crowd. Newbies and veterans alike. It's very spread out, so people don't seem interact as much as at the GQF. People seem to post up in their prospective camps and hang there. Lots of large gassers, 72 mhz radios.

I've always been treated well out there. Nice place to fly, definately

I wish I could tell you what happens but the offending members are no longer to be seen. [Think of Hoffa]

Actually, samo samo. You may get a tongue lashing but that could have happened at the rodeo grounds too, pending on who was there, what day it was...
Maybe they are not as forgiving but they do have a lot more $$$ into the average plane. Just dress up in your dress again and pretend to be Mrs. Bill. They may respect you more.

Hi Bill good Idea, would be nice if everyone posted details and up dates on were they are flying and particulars of field and groups there. We all know change is tough but this will help.
Thanks Kenn

P.S. I have not yet joined AMA but might did join Scottsdale. Very friendly bunch real laid back . cost Joining fee of 50.00 yearly dues 40.00 so 90.00 1st year. they just raised the dues from 25. to 40 wanting to do some improvements. It is about 10 miles form the 60 north on 101 hwy.

Been to the Scottsdale field, nice people, but for the money I would rather go to the AMA field, with their offer of $75 for the GQF members to join, you can't beat the ammenities. Drive is about the same to me, but in the opposite direction.

Did you get any extra apps? Just curious as they sort of hide for an R/C club.

I was referring to apps for Scottsdale's club not AMA. I already joined AMA and have all my stuff but I'm sure other members may need that info.

Pat- I think it might be a good idea to alter the title of this thread and make it a sticky. Maybe "Who's flying at AMA this weekend?"

With OK from Bill of course.

Officially joined AMA today. Sad, but on the other hand everyone seem genuinely pleased that GQF folks were joining up.

Sure, fine with me. Okay to delete this as well and start a new one.

Not sure if I can edit title, will try now. Ughhhhhhhhhhh

Nope, no can do. It will take someone more powerful ...
