    Hey everyone,
    Built a 250 quad about a year ago and now I'm into building and flying fixed wing. I started with scratch built foamies and have moved on to larger glow/gas planes. I'm currently building a vintage 81" Bridi CAP 20L kit and an 68" ARF P-51. I want to start flying FPV on my planes, because it's as close as I can get to the cockpit right now. I'll be testing it out on my RV-8 on Thursday, so we'll see how that goes...

    Happy to be part of the forum, looking forward to meeting you all and reading what you're up to.

    Matt

    Hi Matt,
    Welcome to the Southern Oregon RC forums!
    It looks like you are into the bigger planes which are cool, but hard to find local places to fly them. The Rogue Valley Flyers have a nice field but it's all the way down by Selma so it isn't a place many would just drop by after work to get some flying in. I think the Medford RC flyers club also have a nice place but for us Grants Pass folk it's just like driving to Selma. Some time ago there were rumors of a potential field near Merlin but I guess that never panned out. Which is too bad because Merlin would have been a reasonable distance for local Grants Pass folks.

    Post some photos of your stuff when you get a chance. We all love to see other folks models.

    John

    Just got back from the Agate Lake field. It's a drive, but there's a good group of guys out there and it's a nice field. I'll put some pics up later. Might start a build log on my CAP 20L. A field in Merlin would've been awesome.

    Would be nice if something close to gp were to open up.
