Hello CrazyJB,

I'm an advid DLG flyer and glad to hear your interest. I am trying to make this group the place to look for DLG flying on the lower east and west bay area. The other thread to watch is the California Bay Area DLG Group's - Saturday or Sunday DLG Flying at Newarkhttps://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2279801

Today I am heading to Brigantino Park just outside of Hollister where most Thursday mornings we have a winch set up, but I also bring my DLG plane as well. I know that is a long drive, sorry.

By the way the only problem with being a late morning early afternoon DLG flyer is most people avoid times after 11:00 because the afternoon wind makes it hard to fly.

Another option, if you don't mind a hike is to team up with some South Bay Soaring society member to fly off of our Mission Peak Park hill (SBSS Flying Hill) on light wind days. A DLG plane does great off of that hill and will stay up all day on 3 to 10 mph winds.

Thanks, Throwbot!

The link doesn't work though.

Mission, I've been there. I like it.

Is Los Paseos still OK?

that's gonna hurt...
Hey Joel, here's the link Kyle was trying to share

https://www.rcgroups.com/california-...dlg-group-913/

Los Paseos should be fine for DLG, just remember the school uses the field for PE as well, so don't interfere with them. We have flown TD there with winches during school hours and it wasn't an issue at the time, but probably pushing it a little. Interesting place to fly thermal, with the hills on one side and the shopping center on another. Can be monster lift at times, but turbulent at others.
