I could be wrong about the location, because this one is sort of visable from a road that should be about 500 out of shot on the right (east) side of
the shot. It would be woodly Blvd. Theres a pretty decent bar that a lot of 20 somethings go to about a 1/4 mile to the north. The place is
surrounded by parks, an artificial lake, and public gulf courses.
The area is part of the sepulveda basin, sits behind a dam, and floods real bad whenever it rains in LA. The photos of the floods from the late 90's
in LA that showed the water almost as high as the street lights were all shot at the Sepulveda Basin, hence no large structures are built there.
Some small community farming and gardens there too, great place to buy pumpkins and christmas trees.
The RC field is frequented by real enthusiests. Some of them spend thousands of dollars on each plane, some even jet powered. If this is the same
location then don't worry there's nothing shady going on, it's brimming with kids and their RC loving dads. Theres a few sports field for Baseball
etc just to the south. The black smudge I was refering to was caused a while back when a dude crashed his RC jet into the field and about 40,000
square feet of the brush went up. About 200'X200' The runway is about 300 feet long maybe shorter. Near the road and north of the green tree line
you'll see a worn patch of dirt. The smaller electric RC use that as a runway since they don't need much to take off or land, and the radios
interfere with the Gas powered RC's. people can get pretty heated up there when their $2000 plane suddenly is responding to some other guys remote
cause the frequencies are too similar.
If this ain't the location then I still wanna have a go looksee.
