SOMD Tuesday Night Fly In

I want to thank Dan and Kyle for contacting the caretaker of this area, and allowing us to have a place to enjoy our hobby and friends.

There are just a couple of simple common sense rules we will follow: 

We will be park along the road next to the fields. I just want to ask that no one overfly’ s the road. There is very little traffic there so that shouldn't be a worry. The road can be used for liftoffs and landings for sure, but we need to careful of any traffic, so folks  need to be mindful it is a public road and we can be subject to peoples annoyances. The field of view at height is awesome. There is plenty for people to video or do aerial photography. But there are 4 houses on the property we will be near...and we want to make sure no one overfly’ s those house. There is tons of room to do whatever we want.  The field might be over grown, 3-4 foot tall grass....so you could have a VERY tough time finding your aircraft…..lol

The area is only a mile by air from the Solomon’s Bridge site.

This video will show you exactly where we will have people park and the view they will have.

    It was great seeing everyone's different aircraft. Although we're still working on the quad, Dylan got some ideas on a fixed wing he'd like to build next. The foam board ones that Dan had looked fun.
    As we were leaving and discussing a few of the "incidents" he came to the conclusion that there was a "strong gravity area there tonight".

    Another great night of flying in Southern Maryland. The weather was perfect as was the flying site. We met new friends and there was a large variety of RC aircraft. The space allowed for a large area to fly both airplanes and multirotors. I want to say thanks to all who were able to make it out. The next one should be even better.

    I really would love to join, but I don't have a car and live in downtown D.C. Anyone interested in car pooling from the D.C. area? I can help with gas. Let me know, thanks!

    You are very welcome! I'll be there a bit after 6 and bring some people down to the water for a wetlands overflight or 2. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
