Visiting Phoenix next week...

As the title states, I'm headed to Phoenix next week! :) I'll be there for a few days to see my niece graduate high school, and while I'm out there, the wife told me I could go do some flying (provided the weather is good and not "melt a foamie" hot LOL).

I'll be in the Chandler/Gilbert area, and I'm looking to bring my quad and my UMX Timber out; I figure I'll have at least one day where I can go to a field and fly until it gets hot. :) I know there's Thude Park, but anyone know of any others around Chandler that are within 20 min. drive that I can fly at without getting chased off?

Were you already here?

Thude will be busy Saturday and Sunday morning.

Chandler is kinda anal about flying in non-flying parks.

Yeah, I was at Thude Tues morning and afternoon, Wed. morning, and I tried to go yesterday to Thude but the field was flooded. I was going to go today, but the wife has said we're leaving to head back to San Diego around 11. In addition, I had a crash with my quad yesterday (flying at a different field) and it took out an ESC, so that's out of commission until I get it fixed.

Thude was...interesting. Most people were pretty receptive to me flying, and welcoming, but there were a few that I tried to be friendly with and was looked at like I had lobsters coming out of my ears. LOL

What time were you there on Tuesday?!?! I think I was out by 0745...

And...you ARE from California....so we have to look at you funny! It's probably because of the quadcopter LOL

And yeah, they flood the field last Thursday of the month, but it'll be ready tomorrow morning :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I actually introduced a couple of the guys to FPV, bringing my backup headset, and they thought it was the coolest thing ever. 😁I think that’s a key to getting people to accept quads...

At any rate, I didn’t get a chance to go today - we had breakfast, visited with family for a few minutes, and then stopped to get lunch before heading out back to San Diego. 😁
