Default Alta Loma High School

Alta Loma H.S.
Baseline east of Carnelian in Rancho Cucamonga. 3/4 mile south of the 210 fwy. No tall light standards, access from both east and west. Only 2 large trees but they still are plane magnets.

Any locations for ParkFlyers like the Hawk Sky in the Orange County section of SoCal?

What area in OC? Just start looking for large parks on google maps around where you live or work. I just saw a park on google maps at 33.703751,-117.781093; it looks like it would work well.

If you find a good place to fly, be sure to add it to this map.

I live in the city of Orange, center of Orange County.

Yes, there are several parks near by me, but I thought one cannot fly RC planes at the parks? - Am I wrong?

I don't see any danger with foam type of parkflyers, but around here people are anal about such things.

I got asked to leave (actually land) at a city park in San Macros,Ca. Not because of my flying but because the Ranger said the city got sued a few years earlier by a family whose daughter was chased by a R/C truck (claimed emotional distress) in one of their other parks. So ANY RC activity is now not allowed at their parks.

I believe most cities have these rules in their books.

Yes, it's a shame when things like that destroys it for the rest of us.

So the points on the map you have outlined (really nice by the way), are those approved areas for parkflyers?

The point at fullerton is not too far from me. Looking at the fullerton point, it shows what looks like a residential area. Is that a mistake?

OK, I added it to the map. That looks like a great flying field.

We fly at city parks. You just want to find a time at a park where there aren't many people around.

Nice shot! Here is my best crash pic, but it doesn't have the suspense / anticipation that yours has.

Fairview Park, Costa Mesa, Electric and sailplanes only, All flyers must have $20 City permit badge and AMA or homeowners insurance. Membership in Harbor Soaring Society (HSS) optional, but desirable.

Orange Coast RC Club, (OCRCC) Electric Only, Must have AMA insurance and pay $35 annual membership to fly at El Toro Great Park site off Fwy 5 and Sand Canyon Rd ( entrance on Marine Way) north of Fwy.

Orange County Modelers Association (OCMA), IC and electric , no turbines. Members must be a member of one of the local clubs, have AMA insurance and pay $100 annual membership fee. Must have fire extinguisher due to fire danger, interruptions in flying due to red flag fire danger and shared use with movie companies and event parking.

All of above have safety and flight operations rules and regulations.

Why does everyone make it mandatory to be a member of AMA? Everyone comes back saying it is because of the insurance. AMA does not pay until after your home owners insurance runs out! Has anyone ever actually come into a situation where the AMA has had to pay? Not that you have heard of, but a time where you were directly involved where the AMA had to pay money?
Just asking as I have been flying over 30 years on and off and I have never been involved or heard of anyone flying with me that had the AMA need to pay.
Sarcasm is not needed, just asking a direct question.
Thanks

Well, I guess you are only looking up clubs, and I don't think I've ever heard of an RC club that was not AMA chartered. So other than AMA chartered club fields, you'd have to go find a suitable open space on your own, have your own big chunk of open land, or know someone like that who likes you enough to let you do it on their land. Without the AMA 'glue', I can't see a group of guys getting organized enough to obtain some land and put a runway and other facilities on it. If that's what you're looking for. I've heard cases of people finding a nice place somewhere and getting others with them through word of mouth or whatever. Maybe you have a LHS where you can ask some of the guys there.

At the club I belong, it was a requirement from the city. It is in our lease agreement with the City of San Diego that we carry AMA and be a chartered club.

Without it, the city would simply say no to our wanting to lease the land.

Not to linger about it, but part of my question is why the city mandates that you have a ama charter. If your home owners are going to pay if something is damaged, why mandate you have ama? If they want everyone flying there to show they have insurance, that's fine. I had ama for 5 years, did not belong to a club, flew at open fields and the ama would not have covered me anyway as they want me to also pay to belong to a club and fly at their chartered ama field. My home owners insurance will pay if I fly at a dirt field or a ama field. Seems that the home owners insurance is a better deal and more likely to pay then AMA.
Seems there is always a catch to anything that people want to enjoy. Someone always is trying to make a buck off of everyone else.
I will now drop this. Thanks for everyone that replied thoughts on this.
