Traffic cones
Where do you guys buy traffic cones from?

All I can find are the really small ones that are only like 6-8 inches high. I would like to have some that are 1-2 ft tall to mark off flying areas at times when needed. Kinda like the ones construction crews use.

Thanks,

The "rent-it" places have the 3-4 foot tall traffic cones. Only a couple bucks a day/ea. to rent and heavy enough to string with plastic ribbon for a pretty secure landing area.

I use them on twisty roads with blind curves to get people to slow down.

Too big to haul around all the time, but should buy about 4 or more. The rental places "will" sell them but at $30/ea. I'll keep renting.

Farm supply stores and Ace Hardware carry them too, although I only go to Ace to "browse" or buy a few pieces of hardware I can't find elsewhere.

I just pick them up right off the road. Ironically, you could usually find them when there's road work.

I hope you don't mind cones with Caltrans printed on them

Everyone else might not mind but Caltrans just might. Might want to cover it up with something else. I don't know...maybe 'Dakine'. No, that might be too incriminating.

Tony,

Man you crack me up.

Sell them to me. No one here in Michigan is going to care that they say Caltrans...

Plus fall is on the way and everyone around here is going to go back in there holes again. Finally I will be able to fly wherever I want whenever I want again and not have those crazy soccer fair weather sissies all over.
