Default Chicagoland Indoor flying site wanted

A friend of my has been stationed in Chicago. He's looking for indoor flying sites. The closer to ORD, the better.

Thanks,

John

Check out this club. On the front page there's a link to a dome near ORD that they have on weekend nights.

Thanks. My friend had heard of the dome, but didn't have the details.

Any more? With all the snow and cold wind, I thought there would be more.

I wish there were more......

Bensenville is a little far for me to drive in the winter months....especially at 11pm, way past my bedtime....

Not that I know of, but I am new to the RC scene and am still learning. There's a few more clubs in the area

http://lakecountyrcclub.org/default.asp
http://www.crcmflyers.com/

but I don't know if they have indoor venues.

Howdja like that 55-degree drop in temps in 8 hours on tuesday? Pretty dramatic.

My friend found two other places by asking the LHS. I'll post where they are when I get details.
