Default Indoor flying site in Metro Atlanta Area?

Is there an indoor flying site in the Metro Atlanta Area?

If not, who has a large room, gym,etc. for indoor flying this winter?

Marietta, Kennesaw, Smyrna, Powder Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Hiram, Mableton, Acworth, Intown ?

You could charge a small admission to pay for the electricity. Maybe Atlanta Hobby could have supplies. Anything is possible.

Just an idea whose time has come. All those electric planes and helis that came for Christmas need a home and with the new Park Flyer AMA coverage and regular AMA licenses, insurance would be there.

We used to have one many years ago. It was an amazing venue and huge. http://koolflightsystems.com/indoor.htm

Unfortunately the owner leased it out to a Church and we could not come to an agreement. We have not found a better place since although AtlantaHobby does have a small indoor right beside the shop. I think he opens it up on Thursdays. A shockflyer was tight in there for me, but perfect for a micro indoor.

you find a place let me know, however it mostly likly be on other side of ATL to far from me. its starting to be nice out, some nice days for flying.
what kinda planes you have for indoors? I think I could fly my 37 inch edge profile inside maybe. it flys slow.
I know I could a heli. just dont know anywhere. I live in Paulding county and fly outdoors in my back yard.

I went to Atlanta Hobby yesterday. Site is 43' by 100'. Strictly micro site.

23 miles outside I-285 on 400. Nice shop.

With the poor commercial real estate market...someone must have a building they would like to collect admission to.

yes chris i know you. I'm in Powder Springs/PCMA

You know me I only know one Dan and hes not much into electrics, or wasn't....
Anyhow hurry up and find a inside flying site, this 10-25mph winds past 3 days stink and looks like going be with us few more days I got me a Blade Cp heli and it stinks i can only hover in a 6 foot by 5 foot spot on my sun porch...

hey , I wonder when the gym will be built for the school down the road. and wonder how long it take for me to get ran off??

you would think schools would rent gyms and parks also but seems they want NO part of RC in/around them park down road from my house has nice building where play basketball plenty big nuff for foamys but they ran me off flying outside told me to go join a club told them i already was a member of PCMA they said well go fly there .... thanks a lot ...

maybe if they let us fly in places like this more kids would/could getinvoled rather then destroying properties and doing drugs.

I wish the clubs did more to promote the hobby but then again right now no one has any $ for it.

Talked with the lady at the Flea Market again today about the venue posted in the link above. The chruch is gone and they are open to us flying there again. They have to get the Certificate of Occupancy from the Fire Dept. sometime next week and she is going to call me back with pricing and such. Will post here with further info.

For anyone who has not been here, here is the address so you can Google it,

Peachtree Peddlers Flea Market
155 Mill Road
McDonough GA 30253

We are in the "Showcase Event Center" which is behind the actual Flea Market itself. It is the large building closest to the I-75.

Going north or south on I-75 the exit is 221. The flea market is on the west side of the interstate south of Sams Club.

Here is the Mapquest map page of it.

Hope to see you all there.
