I am from New Zealand and visiting the Boston area for work (Hanscom AFB) for the next 3 weeks and have the weekends free. I was wondering if there was any flying happening in the area between now and the end of June to help me get a heli fix.

How about this, see the club website @ http://www.nehelicrew.com/ for more information about the club and directions to the field...

NEHC Scale Fun Fly - Sunday June 14th 9am - 5pm
This Fun Fly will be a scale only event. There is no landing fee. Participation in the event is free, and flying is open to all AMA members. (Proof of current AMA is required.) We will be cooking on-site, and the food will be available at reasonable prices. The field will have electric charging stations by the time the event happens, and this will facilitate all of our battery charging needs. We're not planning any contests for this event. We'd like to encourage everyone interested in scale helicopters to attend and just have a good time. There's no pressure! Just bring your helicopters, eat, fly, and B.S. a little.

Our field is located in Mansfield MA, not exactly next door to Hanscom, but Bedford to Mansfield isn't that bad of a drive, I commute it almost everyday

XCell Spectra G
Radikal G20
Some obsolete nitro helis too...

30-45 minutes south of Boston in Mansfield
Only one event in June (Scale) but there are people at the field most weekends.

Click field link for directions.

Nearest Hobby store (Specializing in Heli's) and just up the road from the Field.

The field is AMA and for club members, but stop in the store and ask for Jeremy, I am sure he will find a way for you to fly there.

Hey thanks guys, I went to RC hover today and Jeremy gave me all the flying site details, so will come out for a look on Sunday. I was also lucky to escape without one of the new T-Rex 450's that he figured I could build and fly while I was over here and then take back home. Man what a salesman. I really like the looks of the Flybarless Outrage 550 that he has - it must fly great.

Yeah, then you thought about what Footy would do to you if he found out.

Anwyay, enjoy Boston Dean, my Mother was born there.

Haha, Yeah I am struggling a bit, as the Atom also works out about $150 cheaper buying here with the Ex rate at the moment.
Maybe I should go for a SK360 flybarless setup with an outrage head for the T700 instead. that way i won't upset the NZ Compass distributer.

Sure seems great at this time of the year

People in Boston forget to put some consonants at the end of some words and Kiwi's have all their vowel sounds mixed up!

Should make for some very interesting conversation! .

I think I'd pay good money to be there.

Communication must be a tough one for poor Jason then!

Yeah, but there are also the fusumo canopies, blades, etc etc, not to mention all the stuff for the kids and the wife. Remind me what the baggage allowance is?
