Hi guys,

I went to the field today to fly a few tanks and hopefully complete the break-in of my YS56. On my second flight, I was approached by the cops and was told that I have to pack up and go. They stayed there till I packed up and left the field. According to them, there is no flying tomorrow either. The reason? Tomorrow is the grand opening of Burj Dubai, world's tallest tower.

Here is a recent picture I took and you can see how far the tower is from where I was standing. Also, when I fly, the tower is behind me.

Anyways, I'm pissed. Its time for some living room flying with the mSR.

Regards,
G

I've never had that happen flying helicopters, but in my 20 years of sk8brding, I can't count high enough how many times I've been booted from the cops.

Did they give you any other reason besides the grand opening of the world's tallest tower?

Don't feel bad. Its 12 degrees here with a windchill of -4 degrees.

Nope. That was the only reason.

The tower may be all that, but the machines in the foreground take the prize

That $uck$.
How far away is that building?
In the pic I'm guessing about 5 miles.

No Fly Zone

Every time the president is in the area they declare " No Fly zone " for like a 30 mile circle around. That includes RC aircraft, Subject to Federal offense.
That has kept me down more than once this summer.

That tower is so tall you'd have trouble seeing it from the ground while trying to fly a bomb into the top!

At least it sounds as if they were polite. That tower is a big deal to the government and with all the crap going on I am sure they are being very careful.

Yeah, they were polite. They asked me to F off very nicely lol

But yeah, I know what you mean.

Since I cannot fly tomorrow, I might actually go to the grand opening!

Big tower. It will be interesting to see the occupancy over the next several years considering the economy.

set up the largest ESTES rocket you can find on a timer to launch during opening ceremony. Bet the people who notice it will be counted on one hand.

In the first pic, that tower looks like something from a sci fi movie.

The size of that tower is unreal. I would def. be at that grand opening if I lived anywhere near.

Please grab some street level pictures looking up if you can.
