It's not dangerous ehh? Not according to CMAC - check out their own field manual. . It's a ridiculous notion that there is no danger. Stated purpose of MPSSC - "conservation and passive recreation". You know what? Why don't we just build an amusement park on the property - since "passive recreation" isn't good enough.

I just moved to the NW Akron/Fairlawn area. Are there any model airplane clubs here? Or any open spaces/fields for me to fly my electric?
