Title: Greetings! semi new pilot here!
Post by: Rimmy on December 03, 2010, 02:59:14 PM
My name is Tim. I am a long time RC enthusiast, but mostly ground.

I have been flying my slow stick now for about 3 years, mostly at a local park.

Wed was my 30th birthday, and my friends all chipped in and bought ma a new plane. I now have a Dynam SR Trainer. its an electric foamie, but the quality is very nice.

I took it to my usual spot, and it is VERY fast, and I had a rough landing. no real damage, but its an eye opener for sure.

I am not used to high speed planes, and don't think my local park is big enough for this size bird.

I am looking to see what the local community is like. I'm not a rich man, so fee's and things are a concern of mine, but if I don't bite the bullet some time, I'll never leave the ground.

I was wondering what a good time to head to the field was for some tips? maybe even just watching. I have a 5 year old daughter who loves watching me fly. I would like to bring her along. best she gets into good habits early.

please let me know! thank you! -Tim

Hi Tim,

Welcome to the SCCMAS. You are always welcome to come out to the field to watch. It's typically open each day from 8:30am till dusk. The most popular days are Saturday and Sundays from 10am-2pm.
