Just curious

Do most Runryder pilots fly at home or at the field?

I do both. I fly my electrics at home and fly my nitros at a local field. I have room to fly nitros on my property but don't usually out of noise consideration for my neighbors.

If i need to do work on setup when not at the field i can do it at home but for fun flying i always go to the field.

95% of the time I fly at home. 1% of the time I fly at the club. The other 4% of the time I don't fly at the club but shoot the breeze.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

I fly at home as I don't belong to a club.The reason is I am not an AMA member so I don't have their insurance my issue is as I understand it being a home owner if I were to have an accident my home owners would be the first insurance used then the AMA's policy would cover why pay for insurance that you most likely will never use?If I am wrong please correct me.I would love to belong to a club for additional help when needed but I do not agree with some of the AMA's past practices dealing with Helis.

I love the smell of nitro in the morning..

I fly exclusively on my property. The only helis I don't regularly fly in the house are my T-Rexs. I fly the 'Rexs in the yard and the 300 sized helis also in the yard when the winds are agreable.

I fly at home just to test out new settings, track blades, etc. I fly at the field when I want to cut loose. I do however fly my Trex 450 at home from time to time....

I agree with you about the AMA insurance. But I do like to fly elsewhere so I do have AMA. Sometimes it's nice to fly with a bunch of "heli nuts", I find out what I'm doing wrong or right and get a lot of laughs. Thats what this hobby is all about having fun and friends.

I'm as cheap as the next guy but insurance is one thing that I will pay for, I learned the hard way.

Because I work for a large contractor, When I clear the new land and pave the roads, I have between 1000 to 15,000 acres to play on.... I had to sign a "Hold Harmless agreement" for my personal waiver but the wide open land is worth it......

I do test flight with my 30 size helis on my property... mostly hovering or a quick figure 8 in the front yard.

I go to the airport to do all normal flying.. It's a private grass runway with a few hangars. There is tons of room, and hardly ever anyone there flying their planes. Best part is being able to fly the R/C stuff and then hop in a real plane and go for a flight.

Here's a pic of the end of the runway that I fly on:
It looks small in the pic, but is bigger than a football field

Here's a video of the hawk flying at the airport:

I have close to 2 acres that I fly my 450 on but it kinda limits me. When I feel that I want to try something new, I go to the local soccer field , where I know there is absolutely nothing I can run into. OTHER THAN THE GROUND!!!!!!!!

I Test and setup my machine at home. When I can't make it to the flying field, I fly not from the house in this large field used for soccer and Flag football.
