I have GoogleEarthed the Trabuco site, and it is O.K., but there is a no-fly zone about five hundred feet to the left. Ironically, the club that maintained the Mile Square site, and lost the fight in the courts to save it, now manages the pitiful site at "great" park, where you cannot fly in the afternoons due to sun angle, cannot fly anything gas or nitro powered (electric toys only), and have to watch for that damned balloon.
