Fly, that is, without encroaching on private property, angering people, drawing the law down on one's head, or running into trees. Perhaps we could put together a list of Good Places to Fly. I'll start with the U.S. My site of choice is OGM, the Ontonagon County Airport near Ontonagon in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This nearly deserted rural airport (two or three aircraft operations a week) has a 7-member r/c model club that flies off a large asphalt ramp and off a huge cropped lawn about half a mile square. The club follows AMA rules and keeps an eye out for aircraft in the landing pattern. The lawn has been the perfect open space for a noob (me) to learn his Phantom 1.1.1, and the airport manager not only knows all about it but comes out to watch me fly. Folks in these parts are not only interested but also encouraging. The airport has a nice pilot lounge with bathroom and coffeepot. There are no crowds. Downside: There are no fantastic views of mountains, valleys, Caribbean beaches or urban skylines. Just a lot of forests, rivers and Lake Superior shorelines. Since this is an airport, wind can be a factor in comfortable flying, but the wide open spaces gives you a chance to learn to deal with breeze and gusts.
