Yelled at in the park!
Was flying my trex 450 in the park accross the street- had only been through one pack (about 6 min) when some dude in his 60s comes hustling up to me, and starts telling me that there is another park up the street I can fly at, because my heli is noisy, its 5:00pm and he is eating dinner.

WTF!

Im a pretty considerate guy, but he was really rude and didnt even try to ask, say, how long might I be, and could I next time fly somewhere else, etc. etc.

I live here too, its a public park, IMO a 450 electric heli doesnt make that much noise, and even if it did it only lasts about 10 min (since I only have 2 packs). And this was the first time I had flown there in a couple weeks.

I told him I would be done in just a few minutes when my battery ran out and continued to fly.

He of course gave some sarcastic remark and stormed off.

2 min later batt was dead and I packed it up.

What would you have done?
Ever notice how crash rhymes with cash?

I called my city's Parks and Rec office and got an official copy of what is allowed and what is not allowed at the city parks. In my city, I can fly kites, airplanes, and helicopters so long as they are not powered by fuel--so that makes a 450 just fine. Keep this with you, and pull it out if someone yells at you.

If there are kids at the park, however, you might want not fly to let them play. Kids can be very unpredictable. I prefer to fly early in the morning at my local park because nobody else is there. In the afternoon is the worst time.

You are lucky, they just passed a city ordinance in Temecula against any RC in any park. A friend of mine recently got a warning, and the cop said next time he would get a ticket.

Tell the cop to make himself useful and give tickets to those still using a cellphone while driving without a handsfree device or parking in a handicap spot... LoL. I swear, some cops just don't have nothing better to do. Cops in my area, don't care about the little stuff because our city have bigger problems to worry about. I've been approached by cops on several occasions just to simply watch.

people like that are just the scum of the earth to me and I would of done the same thing and kept flying and asked the man to stop bugging you while your trying to fly.

How many people cut their grass with a lawnmower at 6 to 8 in the morn or late at night, that to me is just as annoying but takes more time than just a couple packs of battery's that last 20 min.

What a jerk.
This hobby sucks, when your not flying.

Pack up the 450
Go and get the 90 Nitro out!
He thought the 450 was loud! Start blade slapping the 90 Nitro!
A solid set of Aileron Tic Tocs should do it for him!
It would be worth the price of the ticket!

(Just kidding, I wouldn't endorse flying a Nitro 90 in a Public Park)

But it would be nice to "Chap his As*"
