Well, all of you MA guys need to get some AP/AV/FPV shots of some of that spectacular scenery up there.

How about some footage from the top of Mt Greylock, or views from over the Quabbin reservoir? I'd even settle for some aerial views of the Blue Hills. The old weather observatory at the top of Big Blue cries for someone to get some footage of it.

You should just move back home you know you don't like that warm weather deep down you miss the snow and cold.

Didn't know anyone else was flying in Oxford. I have been flying a year and run into one kid in charlton at the middle school. The parking lot makes an excellent runway.

Gramps,

Is there a way to join the rocky hill flying circus? I live in Oxford and have been trying to find a flying site. I have been on Rc groups under the same name for a while and googled oxford and the name came up.

I will send the president a email they are a great bunch of guys at this club. Very laid back and there is no snobs here. As long as it flies and safe they don't care.

I will do this tomorrow and send you a PM later at night or when I get a answer.
John.
By the way where have you been flying?

I have been flying at Charlton middle school the oxford high school and down in ct on private land. I have 9 or 10 balsa planes so far and have gotten to the point that I don't bring home a pile of sticks. I have some videos of flying my float plane here at the greenbriar field from snow http://vimeo.com/18442589
Good to meet you,

Dave

I like that field because landing is challenging. I flew my pt-19 there the other day and had several good flights. I flre my p-47 ath the high school yesterday. I think i might send them a bill for keeping the geese away. Thanks for checking into that for me. I was contemplating joining the sturbridge club but this is much closer.

Seems as though there are quite a few of us living in Oxford!

Just sent in my AMA application, and will be looking for a club locally. I'm going to need some "re-training" and getting some instruction with a buddy box is probably a lot less expensive than trying to do it on my own. The Millis club isn't that far from where I work - in fact, it's on my way home - so stopping by there in the afternoon would still give me time to get in a flight or two before sunset. I'm still looking, though.

I have a buddy box set-up if you want to get out and fly sometime. You have to be a better flier than my fiancee..

I flew a few packs on the sukhoi and did some pics and a video. I was thinking there has to be a way to flatten the field a bit with a steamroller or something?

I just may take you up on that offer! I have a Flyzone Switch on it's way, so once I get that set up, I'll get in touch with you if you don't mind.

Re: flight skills. We'll have to see on that....

Not going to happen Dave we have no water or electricity down there so no growing new grass after wards. You have to get bigger wheels and longer landing gear wire. I did a lot of nose over landings down there till I learned to stall just above the deck with my smaller stuff.
This field was made by the glow guys, and their bigger planes. It is a rough strip for sure with no hope of improvement.

I can handle it... just might be nice to use a steamroller to flatten it out

Cambridge n00b checking in. Are there any local micro heli pilots?

I just picked up a Blade mSR knowing full well that it probably isn't the best option for a newbie. Such is the joy of impulse buying.

Hello All...I haven't started flying yet. But I'm looking to just get into it..so I'm trying to do a lot of reading and see what I can learn before I start spending TONS of money.

I'm in North Attleboro, and know no one. So I'm looking to pick up a Sim and start learning on my own. My 7 yo daughter tried the Sim at a hobby shop and loved it...so I think that it's something that we might give a shot at together.

Hi C-pher;

There is an AMA charted club near you in Wrentham. ( http://www.lazyloopers.com/Home.html )

I'd suggest a visit. If you like the guys and the Introductory Pilot program I think you will find they will guide you through the maze of buying new equipment.
