    You think so we live in one of the biggest countries and with a relatively small population, flying fields are hard to find and maintain. Just spent the last couple years with a flying friend try to keep a field alive and not lose it, but it looks like we may have turned the corner and the members see growing very slowly but going in the right direction. I believe we will be able to cover the cost with members fees.

  3. I guess the sounds issue is the biggest issue and flying over other people's property . The field i'm at which is butted up againist the CP railways went through sounds issues with new 1-2 acre lot houses that went up behind the railway in the last 3-4 years.
    We measured a db rating of 86Db only 100 feet from the CP line when a freight train accelerating out from the yards, our loudest db was 64 at the same ponit with a 35% Extra GP 123 on mufflers . So we were well with in the db limits for the surrounding area .

  4. The biggest problem is spoiled people, lawyers/insurance, media, and dumb asses that think they can do anything anywhere.
    How is that you say. Well!!!
    People are spoiled!! And don't want to hear anything they don't want to hear.
    Lawyers will sue on a dime and insurance has to cover an extremely wide and mandated market mostly due to the lawsuits.
    Media portrays our hobby as a means for terrorism, especially the last several years in movies/ tv shows.
    And the DA's flying over fires, the WH lawn, around the Statue of Liberty, etc. etc. etc.
    Anyone that has anything is not going to risk losing it due to a law suit for sake of toy airplanes. I know I would not risk it, even if the suit is frivilous attorney fee's are not.
