Default High Speed Flying sites

Looking for a club in Northern Virginia that is speed friendly and have no "special rules" for fast and low planes. I moved here about 8 months ago from Texas and am about to go looking for another new club (third). 1st one was treed in and flapless pylon was almost imposible to land w/o damage. The other says fly the otherside of the runway except for me. I have to stay 50 yds beyond that over 20 ft trees. That is w/ my hotliner. They have not seen my pylon stuff yet. Safety officer is skeerd[X(].

Too bad you aren't closer to us. It aint Tx but plenty of space to go loud and fast.

I wouldn't expect many opportunities at nearby club fields to fly my fast stuff...even if it met the noise standards.
How many feet per second does 150 mph gobble up...? At a typical field around here the proximity to busy streets and houses is too close for my liking.
Then there are the witless guys who show up in the middle of your flight who pay no mind to the planes that are already flying around.
The slow economy has been the only thing to keep the developement of open land in check the past few years around here.. and postponed the inevitable loss of all open space that can accomodate fast planes.
I might have to move to the high desert.

Move to the Greenville, SC area. There are several clubs in my area that allow fast planes. I fly 428 pylon planes at the Firetower club. Jets are also allowed.
I know of 4 clubs that would allow fast. The Joe Nall site is the largest.

That's what I hear about your area. It is a hot bed of high performance plane activity.
Lots of speed freaks on RCU from your area.

Yeah. Especially Vicman. .
I have a new Kraft speed 200 I plan on flying tomorrow for the first time. All I have on it is an OS32 with mini pipe.
I expect at least 125 out of it.
Going to a Flyin at WCRC this Saturday. Taking my 428 plane to thrill the crowd.

The lekky guys.
I can always pick them out.
They're the ones who wear the white pants, white loafers and some sort of a polo shirt that has "TEAM XXX SOMETHING" plastered all over it....[8D]

Brooks,
After looking up AMA sites within 25 miles of Chantilly, Virginia (one of the few spots in Northern VA I've visited) I can feel your pain!
All but one was pretty restrictive and only one had any mention of high speed aircraft and it had a limited membership...PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY R/C FLYERS, INC

Well if your ever in MA bring a plane you can fly at the Wingbusters site.
