    Remember it is illegal in all parks in San Jose to fly remote control toys. I have a difficult time flying around here. Is it legal to fly in Baylands Park in Sunnyvale?

    I have seen a lot of rc aircraft here. From large ducted fan jets, racing quads and phantoms.

    Bayl
    Baylands is okay but cost $6 to enter. Next month it will be free
    Alviso slough
    Lexington
    Chesbro
    Santa Cruz beaches
    Weekends I go to easterbrook school on Doyle rd, kind of my place to test things.

    There is tons of places, just stay clear of the airport!

    Any issues with flying at any of the colleges or high schools on weekends? Was thinking West Valley College in Saratoga. Also looking at some of the high schools with large playing fields. Any word if you can fly at the Campbell Community Center fields?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I've been to many of the High schools and had no issues. If you get approached just be kind, if they tell/ask you to land just do it and leave. It's kind of the way I approach it. never had an issue, good luck
