North Carolina Flite Test Flyers

I'm in the Lake Norman area. I'm currently learning/crashing at lake norman high school in mooresville. Would love to go to some kind of meet up around here and I'm sure my brother in law would attend as well.
 
I own 5 acres in Chocowinity and the neighbors let me use their fields too. (Farm land, really open)

I've got family in Newport and spend time down there some weekends.

Have lots of templates printed and glued. I mostly fly fixed wing and some quads. A few models that are still airworthy but that's the glory of foam. A Pack, F Pack motor only, C Pack, & 70mm EDF.

Hit me up if you want to fly or build.
 
The list is growing! While we haven't organized anything yet (one day...), this is the place to get in touch with your fellow Flite Test fanatics should you happen to live in (or around) the great state of North Carolina. Stop by, say hello, and we'll keep the directory updated should we choose to one day unite and start a revolution...or, you know, go fly some remote control models together.

I'm in Fayetteville, so not so far from you. There's a few of us FliteTest fans that fly down at Davis Bridge Aero Modelers on the edge of Fayetteville/Parkton. Probably a haul for you from Southern Pines, but it's a friendly club that flies all kinds of stuff.
some weekend we should meetup and fly a bit.

I think It took 3-4 months before I flew a half-lap around the football field. another 4 before I flew again, solidly (like a WHOLE lap) a whole year later to do it with confidence. A Simulator really helps with getting your mind wrapped around orientation and getting your thumbs to do tell your plane do what your brain wants. also you can use it to try out tricks. (Like flying inversions.)

I am flying at local school, which happens to have a very large farm land, known the family for years
