Here are some photo's from this W/E's activity at Maxwell School and of note is the presence of a TUSD cop that we've never seen before and could cause us some issue's about flying at Maxwell. I hope not.

That TUSD cop was lying about not seeing us fly at Maxwell ever. I have posted here and at other site's photo's of RC model flying that go back 20 year's.

There apparently is a movement afoot to strip away the ability to continue to fly unimpeded and certain individuals are looking to achieve that by any means needed and think nothing of providing false witness about the same. They have it in their head we somehow remotely could use our hobby aircraft for evil intent and no history or intent or evidence that could or might occur. Merely the ability does not constitute an intent. Terrorist could do many things they haven't yet in this country. To strip away freedoms and rights because it could happen is evil and not justified.
Let's hope this cop's ignorance or bug up his butt stays there and he has no traction on being able to change anything in the ability to enjoy the hobby at Maxwell or other locations. Socialism strips away your rights and freedoms and is essentially a slavery to government who declare they know better than you on what you should be able to do and removes the decision making ability from the people and gives it to government.

I was flying there in 1991 when I lived across the street. I wasn't the only one either.

No. Went up there plenty, but every sailplane I had at the time was for thermals. Did go down to the park off Silverbell and fly CL fairly regularly.

TCC has designated Christopher Columbus as Tucson's dedicated RC field and the sign is still up No RC aircraft. And as long as that sign is there I feel I can slope the "A". Us sloper's have been deemed a threat to the city. Namely interfering with medevac flight's into St. Mary's helipad. I can't even see my model from that far away. And then they think we can fly contraband into the jail from the south face. Perp's could easily recieve stuff from someone on the other side of the fence. Tucson Park's and Rectum have had something to do with this crap.

Here are this W/E's photo's from the field. So Kevin flew his Dayton Racer rubber powered model and it flew rather well despite the wind. A family member of his was instrumental in recovering a small Mitsubishi Zero model that another had given up looking for a reason. He was very happy to get it back. OK here they are.
