Modeling and flying in Denver area

Post  balogh on Thu Apr 19, 2018 4:15 pm

CEF friends,

I happen to stay in Denver Colorado from today till Monday morning.

I checked out the multitude of local model airplane flying fields and clubs on the net, and wonder if there is any flying event (key words: COX and R/C and C/L) that one of you familiar with the local flying activities and places believe I as a humble visitor from the other side of the world would be allowed and recommended to visit on one of the weekend days? Sunny now, but rain and even snow are forecast for the area during the weekend, unfortunately.

Any advice is highly appreciated...if a swap meet with COX stuff is staged somewhere in the area, I would love to show up and spend some $ on engines...even though they are banned from cabin luggage on US flights


P.S. Rusty if you read this,  I will land in Charlotte on Monday and will try to call you as discussed in the pm-s,  but will have to continue my way to Virginia,TX and Illinois the rest of the week before returning home to Budapest...too bad, would have enjoyed meeting you over a beer or something..maybe next time.

Yes pictograms at airport checkin counters include model engines as items banned from carry on luggage. The 010 I have with me is so small it appears to be a morsel in the scanned cabin size handbag

Five years ago my son would have had you over for a beer and a cook-out followed by some RC air time at a field near his house when he lived near Denver and worked in Aurora.

He's in Virginia now, but if your ever near Winchester or I-81 PM me.

So I finally visited the Denver RC Eagles http://www.denverrceagles.org/ field near Cherry Creek Park. After 2 days of snowfall in the area the weather was just beautiful here, some 64 F with some wind. Mainly electric flyers, one big white Acro plane with gasoline engine (the 2nd pic), and a P-40 mustang with a Saito 4-stroker..a JAK and a Messerschmidt, but these were on the ground while I visited. The guys I talked to  - not quite young - did not even hear about COX engines except one visitor from Iowa who said to have seen somewhere in his attic a 049 Bee engine left from his childhood.


Man I wish I had a flying field like that near me...

That does look like a nice field with a new runway.

I'll be listening out for you, Andras. Around 4-7 o'clock would be ideal, but whatever time suits you is fine. I have to start setting up my Stunthangar video hangout show at about 9:00 pm on Mondays.

Air is thin there Balogh. You need a hot .061 to .074 to fly what a single port Baby Bee will fly close to sea level. Kind of like a field in the Carpathian Mountains I imagine.
