There may be an option for me to relocate to the Gainesville area. What's the heli scene like in Gator Town? I know about Flying Gators RC, but I don't know anyone that flies there...

It's less than an hour from the best heli club ever.

Hey Andy,
Heli clubs are great for sport and 3D flying, but I find they usually don't have enough room for contest flying.

What club are you referring to?

Hah, I kinda thought that's what you meant

Yeah, It would be nice to be closer to JAX, for sure. Never thought that it was only an hour away though.

When I reffed hockey a lot I could hit the skating rink in Gainesville from my house in about 50 minutes. The flying field is another 20 minutes past my place so maybe an hour and 15 or so depending on where around the "city" that you live.

Gainesville

Normally people fly at the Santa Fe Community College, Some have a field at 107th from archer rd. Then there's the flying gators. My group flies at a private airport in Branford, about 1 hr from Gainesville.

DVS,

Thanks for the info. I don't imagine SFCC has enough room for anything but close in sport or 3D flying? The other sites you mentioned look good and wide open, though.
