Wish I had brought my Piper Cub. The lake would be a great place to fly them over.

There is a group of RC aircraft in GDL. They were here on the lake yesterday in Joco. Nice group and several of them speak Englkish.

I've wondered about the water ski lake E of Chapala, small, so not too rough, might be good for floats. i've got a couple of helios, but need some guidance and a wide field. I've been dragging a model sailplane along for years but need RC gear for that.

I think I am going to order a flight simulator to get started ( save money on later crash landings ) I would be willing to meet with a group that might be interested in starting a group, but I know so little about this that I would be a listener. Maybe we need to pick a place and time and meet but we would need someone with the basic knowledge of this hobby

Feed back if interested

Regards Phil

My husband has a couple of those helicopters and had a terrible time trying to fly them at first..kept crash landing them and it broke the wings....then, he moved the cars out of our garage (I built a real garage) and with no wind, was able to do quite well...

There is a soccer field just past Vista Del Lago that is rarely in use during the week...we could check to see if the gate is locked and if not, that might be a place to fly planes...if nothing else, maybe you could all get together and talk about the planes you have, how you order them here and just share information....

Yes, the swirling breeze inside our compounds is a killer for amateur helio flyers, I have pruned a few bushes etc.

Any particular day, or just until we get a quorum? Can I wear my beanie with the propeller to look properly dressed for the occasion?

10PM? I think they close earlier than that. Better check with the restaurant.

However, breakfast at 10AM would be OK.
