Electric Fall Fly @ Ives Estates
Since fall is here and we have no electric-only events in South Florida, I say we organize an UNorganized fun-fly in October. Since there are no big events on the weekend of Sunday the 3rd (according to AMA Event Calendar), many pilots should be able to attend. Even if 5 people show up, this should be a good way to meet new pilots and have a fun Sunday afternoon. I guess a good venue is Ives Estates Park in North Miami since it’s near the Broward/Dade county line and many of us fly there anyways.
There are never issues with the park officials about flying there and you should be aware that, since this is an unorganized event, there are no restrictions on type of model allowed there so you will most likely have to share the sky with gassers and larger models. Ives Estates is located at 1475 NE 205th Ter, Miami. There are no fees to enter the park. Please set up within the grassy area at the entrance of the park; to the left side (facing North, running East-West) at the right-turn; That’s where the park officials prefer us to fly. Coordinates to flying area: Google Map with detailed notes.
NOTE: You WILL NEED a 2.4 Ghz Radio to fly here. There is a lot of interference from communication towers in the area. Fly 72 at your own risk.
Join in and lets make this thing happen. We need this; there’s nothing fun going on around here this month…
