Flying South

Does anyone travel South for the winter? Where do you fly?
I'm lucky enough to have enjoyed the last couple of winters in the sunshine of Mesa Arizona. I'm happy to say that the heli community is alive and well here as I've made many RC heli friends. There are a few places we fly including an abandoned industrial park and a specific and official 'Electric RC Heli' field in town. There are 3 heli fun fly's in the area while I'm here so there's plenty to OD on. Does anyone else fly abroad? Where did you fly?

Re: Flying South

Would seem like frequency splitting with the other nearby RC club. These guys fly on the range from 11-35 band pilots at the other site fly on the frequencies 36 and up. At least that is what it seems to me. Or fly on 2.4 and don't worry about it.
