Hi everyone,

Would anyone be interested in a DLG gathering in Yuen Long (Nam Sang Wai) on the 18th?
It will be great if we can spark some local interest in DLGs again... thermal flight is like magic :)

I have attached a photo of Nam Sang Wai, and maps there from Yuen Long.

Stanley, would the 18th work for you and your friends? How many people have you talked to so far? I have asked the Guangzhou and Shenzhen pilots, but Pan Hao and other GZ pilots will not be able to come on the 18th, because we have a gathering in Shenzhen on the 25th and they do not want to travel so far on 2 consecutive weekends. I will try to see if anyone in ShenZhen can come down on the 18th.

I am ok on 18th but not 25th.
Perhaps, if we get sufficient pilots to the gathering, we can run a thermal duration contest as what we have done before.
Are there other pilots interested also?
:lol:

That's great, lets set the date on the 18th then.
To respond to Albert's concern, it is certainly true. There is quite a bit of people flying different things there on Sundays. Therefore, it is not suitable to fly contests, but if it is just a couple guys flying for fun it should be OK. It would be best if we can go fly a bit earlier though, so that there are less people. Would it be possible to meet there at around 9?

On the other hand, are there any other fields we could possibly use?

Just as another option, I occasionally fly at this field in Tai Tong. It is a gravel parking lot, so landings are not good. I have flown there maybe 20 times, but have only seen some people fly helicopters there once. Perhaps this might work for a couple of us to fly for fun?

Yes, I did.
However, I am afraid this side has been blocked. We can probably fly at the other side of the road.

可以找到沒有"直升機"的地點嗎!
大馬力直升機剎傷力大、飛向難以捉摸 . . . :roll: 危險 :!: :idea: :!:

I am not familiar enough with the Hong Kong flying sites, do you guys have a suggestion for where we may be able to fly?
Usually when I fly in Hong Kong I just fly at the rock field at Tai Tong and at Nam Sang Wai (but I usually fly there before work, so, no one is there :P)

I would love to be able to fly at a site without helicopters too, because not only are they dangerous, but they are very annoying too :lol:

應該是說西貢的創興水上活動中心,在東霸附近,交通不便。這裡假日也有很多遊人和露營者,也不知是否需要訂場。這場地近海,加上大霸阻擋,有風時會有很多亂流,飛DLG並不理想。

我個人應為深涌是個很理想的場地,它是一個盤地,四面環山,熱氣流旺盛,好可惜場地已不對外開放! :( :(

另外一個較理想的盤地是大埔的沙螺洞,這裡有幾塊荒棄的農場,飛行空域廣闊,但草地未經處理,pilot area細少,搞比賽有困難,但如果有幾個飛友有興趣,可以上去練習試場,阿麥,你住得最近,有冇興趣上去飛下?
這裡還剩下幾戶村民,唔知佢地會唔會唔高興趕我地走,不過阿麥你同佢地係鄰居,應該會比多少面掛! :roll: :roll:

Hi Johnson,
Do you think we can do DLG practice there? Look like it does not have any grass and also some water in the field. Is it dangerous to fly closed to the main road nearby?

Johnson, thanks for the photos, that field looks usable from the photos, although you probably won't want to have the plane touch the ground there.

Tai Po sounds good too, it sounds like it would be great for a couple of us to fly at.

Hi Johnson and Thomas,

Shall we organize a DLG practice session in TKO this Sunday (18 Mar) to try out the muddy field there?
