this is proof that words do hurt. these guys think its fun to post maps and directions to private land. secrets should be kept secret. if it were my land the only idiots I would have arrested are the ones making these map postings.you all can thank PLOWED for his ignorance, or maybe he is too young to know better.

It's a damned shame for you OC flyers that just wanted a place to burn nitro. For me, too, as I wanted to visit.

No thanks are due to those who were compelled to make the field far too well known.

Just got the ball rolling with Ron at OCMA. Should be all good.

If I have to drive 45 minutes to go fly, may as well pay my dues and sign up for a field that isn't going to get shut down any time soon... (knock on wood!!!)

No idea what's up with Bake, but that's Lake Forest, not Irvine. Maybe they're less sphincterfied with their parks. I'll take a drive up that way. I'm like the one south county guy who got hooked up with a bunch of North County and LA flyers haha. Bake PKWY is right in my backyard.

There's always one or two bad apples that ruin it for everyone. For similar reasons our field is kept very quite. It's unfortunate it has to be this way, but you can't chance a small number of individuals ruining it for everyone.

Here's what I think happened. ( From Aox )

Ultimately, right now, the one guy who wants it shut down is the security guy. One, two, three people hanging out every once in a while is ok, but 4-10, all day, both days, freaks him out. That's "his" turf. And humans can be territorial. Somebody in that office building complained, or he saw us there. He told the group to leave, and was given flak.
This was the key mistake. I believe, in good Orange County fashion, if we had slipped him 20 bucks and said, what if you go get yourself a beer and you pretend we don't exist this weekend, we may have had more success.

At that point it became a matter of principle to him. The "heli hooligans" moved to the "planker" spot. The guy had no problem with the plankers before. There were 2-3, and only for a few hours. He then drove by, and saw the heli crowd he earlier told to leave. Knowing he had at least a little control over the field, or worked for the company that did, he called his boss and raised a stink, and got permission to call the cops and kick everyone out.
I drove by there, and there is a Private Property No Trespassing sign. But only on the planker fence. And it looks old. I never noticed it before. When I drove by tonight, there was a bmw parked there, and an older guy with a scale P-38 foamie, looking all surrepticious. I drove back and forth a few times, looking for guards, and checking this guy out. The last time I drove by he was in the middle of the field, his car was closed, and his plane was gone. I figure he was about to launch. I had the Logo and the MT in the truck, but didn't stop for a fly. I will next time I think. Just a battery.

It looks like the fence has been pushed back, a bunch of brush removed and cleaned up, and a path opened up a bit behind it. Not sure what's up, but it looks even more inviting now.

Anyway...

Drama drama... supposed to come from women, not from being addicted to flying model helicopters... grr..

Hehehe.. ahh well... adventure, that's what we'll call it.

Man, OCHC's a classy bunch of cats...

I called the "Other Account/Previous Interactions" on that one like I was it's father...

I was just looking at OCHC pics too thinking that Damien and his son looked really happy and cool...

I'm really disappointed.

What more to the story do I need?

I start flying helis.

I approach local people looking for people to fly with.

OCHC says, you can fly with us, maybe, if you're cool, and you use our signature, but we're not telling you where we fly, and maybe we'll PM you if you meet our requirements?

Err.. Ok, I don't really use sigs, and I'm not here to be in a pissing/membership contest with anyone, so whatever, I move on. I'm Aox. I've been on many boards through many different passions. My persona speaks for itself. I'm Aox. Not Aox, OCHC Member, or Aox, Network Engineer, or Aox, Yoyo Performer, or Aox, heli-flier. I'm Aox. Just plain Aox. (The A is silent, it sounds like the animal)

Airboss Pm's me. Hey, I'm gonna be here, bring your little toys out and come fly. I go out with my Shogun, I have a great time, people are surprised the Shogun flies.

I start flying more and more at Irvine, with Airboss, Finless, Fireup, and others.

I buy a Mini Titan. This is great. 450's rock. Shogun's retired.

Some past stuff rears its head and some "new guy" starts inviting people to the field I fly at. Damn, hush dude, I like this field.

More posts are made.

I start thinking, man, this is drama. OCHC has their act together, they don't have drama, that Damien guy was cool, maybe I should break down and give up my princples and use their sig and see if I can get invited.

More and more people start showing up on weekends...

I buy a Logo 500! Big helis rock! Mini Titan still gets nearly daily usage.

Damn, I wish people would stop posting about our field. This Plowed guy posts about it, and we don't even see him. That's not really cool.

Even more people show up.

Security guard freaks out, too many people, egos flash, field gone...

Plowed rubs it in.

Plowed turns out to be bulldogs, a guy I respected and maybe even admired.

Illusions shattered, disappointment sets in, faith in humanity slips down yet another notch...

I'm about to buy a .90. Now I have a to find a new place to fly, because Fairview park in Costa Mesa, doesn't allow nitro.

A strong man may stand up for others, but what type of man hides behind a fake account to grief others? Why couldn't you leave us alone?

Airboss must've caused you a large amount of grief for you to act on this grudge you carried for so long. I'm sorry for whatever my friend has done to you.

That's the story as I see it, and it's along the lines of MacBeth or Hamlet...

Truly a tragedy... I dunno. Maybe you wanted the new guys like me to experience the same loss others did when Suzuki closed.

Thanks for sharing?

I dunno... I guess...

Well. You're right there.

Um. I really didn't expect an apology. I don't know how to act right now.

Thank you, Damien. I'm still disappointed, but I'll get over it.

Have a good night, we'll talk another time.
