Very nice. I live across the street from a moderate size park in the city that's been a great place to fly. Hoping to get a small club going next year...mostly geared toward city dwellers who don't want to drive 20-30 minutes to get to a field...but nice folks from the county will be more than welcome.
Smashed2bits... I'm in downtown St. Charles, and a couple of my flying buddies are from Wentzville. We occasionally get together and fly at a friend's place in Foristell. When flying alone, I usually go to a nearby schoolyard. I work for the school district, so I fly outside my building and it works rather well.
I'm near Cottleville and have flown at a few local parks & schools. However, I have found that the high populations of buildings, trees, poles, fences and lights can be a limiting factor to the lifespan of my planes.
I know some folks wrinkle their nose at the AMA and affiliated clubs, but there's a certain peace to knowing you're flying where it's okay to fly and the facility is designed for it. If you're interested, check out the Spirits of St. Louis field. Great pits with tables and electricity, a pavilion, and a 600' paved runway. Hard to beat!
I also live in Wentzville. Usually fly at a friends farm. Although sometimes I think I overstay my welcome. Use his power, bathroom, front yard.... LOL. I would really like to find another public place nearby though. That way I could have more "gatherings" with folks. I've found usually school yards are either full of kids, or obstructions as mentioned previously.
In my hangar i have a ft spitfire, and a modified Bloody Wonder running the tacon bigfoot (it's stupid fast) also a cheap profile plane i got from Value Hobby (and would recommend to anyone). I am working on a 150% ft mustang covered in aluminum tape. it will have a removable wing modified to fit retracts, flaps, and eventually one of those sound modules, i am putting a lot of scale detail into it and hope to modify the plans enough that it has all the bad tendency's a warbird should. i would like it to fly as scale as it looks.
