Hey Luc, we'll be out there again on Friday if you're back in the air by then. I have a spare cc3d fc and 5v bec if they would help. No spare 2xxx motors, sadly. Just 1806's which cant handle 4s.

Just to clarify, we're meeting at the bbq area at the end of Adair park, not the main RC field. There are some trees and obstacles to fly through down there. Give me a call if you have any trouble finding us.

adair park was really fun for flying fpv but i went on google maps and found some other nice parks in Corvallis. Avery park seamed like a good place to fly fpv because there was a lot of obstacles to fly through and its pretty close. also i thought maybe we should try willamettte park too

It's against city ordinance to fly model aircraft in Corvallis parks, except for a couple of them (bmx track and pioneer park, I think) I don't know how enforced that is, but it's something to consider.

I didn't know that, thanks. Do you know if it's okay at Adair park?

I haven't checked into Adair Village regs, but it definitely won't be subject to Corvallis ords since it's not in the city.

Good point, Jeremy. I've made it a point not to fly in the Corvallis parks, just in case. I don't know the regs for Adair park but we should find out.

I've gone to the Corvallis bmx track several times but people often ride or walk up, so it's not very private. I think there's a little tent city near there, and people come investigate the noise..

There's a nice field leading up to the water treatment plant in south Corvallis. They keep it mowed and there is a beautiful line of trees (pylons!!) along the road, which is gated so there's almost no through traffic. Also, I live about a block away, so that's a perk.

edit: On that note, Sunday after about noon looks pretty good. Anyone want to fly?

Here are some links to FPV gates:

These are by far the best ones I've seen so far: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2382187

These look really nice too:

Just some ideas to get the wheels turning. Would be cool to have some "real" gates to set up a sweet course.

Who's up for some weekend flying, and when/where should we meet?

I'm going to a bbq near Adair at ~2pm, but they are the sort of people who might want to come gawk at a gaggle of quadcopters for an hour, so I don't think it would be a timing conflict.

It sounds like the next 'race day' will be this Friday, weather permitting. Well, that's my next free day and it sounds like Scottie can probably make it as well. What times are people available?
