This gives a little glimpse of the FLFLFL site. Wide open and you can fly from a protected cove. The county owns the property for a water treatment plant.

This takes place at a REALLY big pond.
It is not unusual for the water to be completely glassy.
Landing technique: Judge your altitude by the distance between the plane and its reflection.
