Default Flying Fields/Hobby Shops, Los Angeles?

I am going to be traveling to LA for work in a few weeks and staying in Carson, CA. Are there any good flying fields or hobby shops in the area?

Thanks,

Tony

There is a great hobby shop in ontario called hobby club usa. Flying field near chino, called prado flyers. I'm not from LA, but there frequently. There are a couple flying fields in orange county. One is trabuco canyon and the other is orange county rc club. I'd talk to the hobby shops and see if there are any events. Orange county rc club requires a key to get in at all times, so you will need to know someone.

In chino, the planes of fame air museum and Yanks air museum are WELL worth the time. I can't recommend 1 over the other. They both have many ww2 planes.

Go here.


Take the 405 north to Burbank Blvd. Make a left at the light. Go to Woodley . Make a right. You'll see the field on your left. Make a left at the entrance. It's pure chaos. Dan.

Just curious Tony, how are you going to transport your Plane(s) from CT to Southern CA?

Not bringing any planes, just going as a spectator over the weekend.

If you find yourself in Sacramento for any reason, look up RC Country Hobbies.
Go in and say hello to the owners Chet and Terry, and be sure to do your best to frustrate Joe behind the counter on the airplane side of the shop.

Stop by here https://www.facebook.com/sgvrcl/
I learned to fly here 30 years ago or more and it’s an awesome place. Large runway and taxi ways, very fun. Usually a right to left field. Use to be an Armor museum near by. Lots of old timers here! Lol

Ive flown at Sepulveda Basin too, usually left to right, good jet turn out. Has picnic tables, good shade to hang out

Prado is cool, you should make a day of this field and go to Planes of Fame, best air museum in the SoCal area.

Check out Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair, pretty cool store, big shop.

I dont live down there anymore but you can’t miss with these places.

Plan your travel time - LA traffic is infamous. Took me over two hours to get from LAX to Ontario during the afternoon drive time.

Thanks for the advice and ideas. I checked out Planes of Fame, Apollo Field, and Pegasus Hobbies this past weekend. Great places and made for a great visit to the area.
