Hi,
I'll be in Milpitas for 2 weeks of work. I'd hope for some flying time between 24-25th Apr. Can anyone recommend a good spot and any local fliers around the area?

Cheers

Hop on 237 and take it to Baylands or 237 to 101 to Shoreline.  The parks sit on either side of Moffett  There are several fliers on the forum that fly in that area.

Thanks Steve! Is there anyone I should be looking for? Rev fliers?

If you don't mind an hour drive, try the Berkeley Marina/Chezar Chavez Park at the West end of University Avenue. It's a very popular kite flying location with local Rev fliers. Some of us will be in Morro Bay that weekend. The field on the West side, closest to the Bay, isn't huge. But 75-85' lines work fine. Or you could share the large field to the East with off lease dogs (minor problem). Views of the Bay & Golden Gate Bridge, few obstructions, best winds in the Bay Area. Where ever you go, enjoy.

There are always some flyers at Shoreline Park in Mountain View on the weekend (or just about any weekday afternoon). Some excellent quad, dual and traction people. Vince Maranta is one of my favorite quad flyers, especially with a Speed Series Rev.

Baylands is a bit closer to your location, but has been overrun by RC plane people.

I agree with Allen, skip Baylands and go to Shoreline. Its only 10 minutes farther and you'll find other flyers and smoother winds there. Post again a week before you go and I bet you'll find people to meet up with.

Thanks! Ok, so it's either Shoreline or Cesar Chavez Park that is also recommended by a local flier here. I don't mind the drive to find a good flying spot and to meet the local fliers there. Well, if time permits, I might head for both places over the weekend!

I have spent many years flying at shore line park . Its a great place to fly . I flew there a lot back in the day when we use to be able to fly at the lake . that was a sweet place to fly . than they moved us out to the parking lot at the gate  Embarrassed , still though tons of great times .
