Most parks don't permit glow/gas planes, some don't even permit electric planes, unless they are hosting a club

Yeah,, that would sure depend on the park and how close to houses it is,,, you can be pretty sure if it's close,, neighbors are going to call to complain about the noise eventually,,

A side from that,, a 5-6lbs and up airplane is a hazard to people,, so if this park is populated with people flying any type of aircraft could be a bad idea depending on how much open space you have,, buzzing any type of craft over people makes us all look bad, so please don't

Join a club,, fly in a safe and controlled area,, it's better for you and everyone else

good luck

Default I think you're right

I think I should stop flying until I join a club. All I fly is a sport Cub S2 by horizon hobby and there are a lot of houses around that Park usually not many people unless there's a ball game going on but there are a lot of houses and things around the buildings I guess what you're saying would apply to that kind of a situation too so I guess I won't fly anymore until I join the club
