I moved south from Gaston County in 2006 so I am in SC now. East of Columbia. I was flying at Martha Rivers Park the day it opened in Gastonia.....actually months before it opened and I had the place to myself!....That changed fast though and you had to pick and choose your times and there was no way to fly anything really fast unless you went early. I taught at least 3 guys to fly at MR park before I moved down here.
We have a huge huge field behind the neighborhood where I live right now but it is rough and it eats landing gear up so for me it is belly-floppers only. A few of the local guys mowed a big section down and were using that as a runway but it isn't that much better. I try to go by myself most of the time because they are more "fly in big ol' circle" kind of guys which is cool. None of them fly EDF's that I have seen and I think they get a little tense when I bring all mine out. I flew 8 jets and 2 planes the other day so I was kind of "Bogart-ing" the whole scene but I had an ass-load of lipos to burn through! They are good guys though. The good thing is that it only takes me 2 minutes from my house to see the field and see who is there it just sucks because there is no runway.
There are a few in your group (Charlotte outlaws
) that I used to fly with years ago from time to time. Cool guys for sure! Ask Russell and Pavel about the day they were flying the his Ventus (sp) way up (2000 feet) and lost it in the clouds over 485.....It was a tense 15-20 seconds
