Default Flying in Orange County, CA

Ok, So I have my Slow Stick, now I am looking for a decent place to crash it, I mean, learn to fly it. I'm in SoCal and didn't have much luck searching the board for a related topic. Any help?

I'm in Anaheim, close to Tustin and Irvine. Just don't want to fly near the freeway. It freaks me out.

LOL.

Well I know a place in Irvine, I used to live out that way, but it is bordered by the 5 and 405. Now I am in Yorba/Anaheim. There are also a great bunch of guys that I fly with in Chino Hills every weekend if you would like to join in. It is always nice to have a little help.

But really with a slow stick you can go fly at any park or baseball field near you.

Well this is the place to get help if I ever saw one...great people here. Anytime you want to fly hit me up. We fly in the mornings sat and sun. I usually leave around 8 or 9.

If you ever need help and just want to get a few flights in at a baseball field yorba regional park is right across the street from me, you can usually catch a field to fly in before softball starts.

Rad, you are on my list. I'd go this Saturday, but I gotta shoot some video for work. Might hit you up next weekend.
I'm pretty close to yorba regional also, SWEET!
I've been trying to fly over at Peralta Regional but it's right on top of the 91.

LOL...bummer.

Here is the thread where me and the guys from the field chat.

Stop by and say hello sometime

Once you get real into it and make the decision to join a club or not I know a few good guys at the AMA sanctioned fields out here too. A little bit if a drive (next to irvine lake), and the dues are ridiculous...but if you need a real field and the space it is the best option.

Default Found a Park

So I found a park in Yorba Linda,
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sadd...09656&t=k&z=17

The field at the back or north is open on Tuesday nights and I think Thursdays. I was up there Tuesday night it was windless and wonderful. I flew my slow stick under the lights, It was freakin great. Suck side is there are some major power lines to the west. But for slow flyers it's perfect!
