@rexxigpilot Arizona scores a easy 29 just saying ......
Would you mind doing the rating for each of the 6 categories? Just copy and paste my ratings for Cali then modify for your area. Thanks!

How's the open space in Tahiti? Those mountains are pretty intense last time I visited, but the beach and diving are unreal!

Houston Texas lows are 20s-30s with no snow..
Florida pretty much the same..
any place tropical...

I imagine Hawaii would be prime year round flying

I love the "I hate California" people, just wish there were alot more of them. California is truly the land of four seasons. You can snow ski one day then water ski the next. All within driving distance. I fly year round.

>1. Temperature - not too hot and not too cold for most of the year.

2. Weather/storms/rainfall - mostly no rain, hail or snow. Wind is calm most of the time.

3. Insects - little to no biting insects.

4. Available RC fields/open space - large and predominately unpopulated places to fly.

5. Proximity to other RC heli enthusiasts - not many of us like to fly alone.

6. Government regulations - obviously you can't have laws and regulations that severely limit flying.<

good idea - here are my submissions again for the areas I'm familiar with:

central TX/gulf coast region:

1. 1 (too hot, even dangerous for about half the year)
2. 1 (10-20knot gusting wind out of the SE almost year round, humidity corrodes your equipment, pollution/allergins make it hard to breath and wrecks your health, lots of convective activity in spring/summer on top of it)
3. 1 (infested with gnats, flies, mosquitos, ticks and fire ants everywhere. Fire ant attacks can be very dangerous)
4. 4 (lots of open space)
5. 5 (best bunch of folks you'll ever meet over at the Austin R/C field)
6. 3 (about the same regulations-wise as anywhere)

northern NM:

1. 3 (comfortable temps except for a couple months in winter)
2. 2 (extreme winds in spring 20-40kts, lots of lesser winds the rest of the year, but lots of windows in morning/evening)
3. 5 (virtually no insects because of the high altitude)
4. 5 (lots of open spaces)
5. 3 (not much other activity except in the cities)
6. 3 (same amount of regs as anywhere)

"AZ is just a little too hot for me."

Funny. We have a light covering of snow on the ground right now around the Prescott area. Very, very few days per year over 100. Average year-round temperature in this area of AZ is 80.

All people think about when they think of AZ is down south like Phoenix and Tucson.

You are right.

Any time I hear AZ I think of Phoenix or Tucson.
That's the only places I have visited in AZ.

I do need to widen my experiences and get up to Prescott one of these days.

Never been to the Grand Canyon either.
I guess I'll add that to the bucket list.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Doesn't Florida get those big a$$ storms about 4 times a year called HURRICANES.

I am sure it makes for tough flying.

Even if we get one the winds and rain only last a couple of days at the most.
Today's temperature at 9 AM, winds 0.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Central Florida works great for me since I can fly all year round. Summers can be brutal with the high humidity on top of the high temps, but I just fly either early or late in the day.

IRCHA this year was awesome! Nice temps most of the week (besides the fireworks show)
Plenty of flying buddys, parts on site, lots of places to fly. Lots of free give away's and it was about a week long.

To bad it wasn't longer.

Been reading this with interest, Alaska is not a good place to live for year round flying, however you will adapt if you want to fly even a little.
