hey lazairheads,

how about posting where your fields are? Google has a new toy with satellite images! some are detailed, some aren't, but give it a try and reply to this thread! Since I don't have a field yet, i'll just post my old one. Here's a description of how to do this to make it easy:
1. Go to Google Maps
2. type in a nearby town, and find the area where your field is
3. In the upper right, there are two buttons called "MAP" and "SATELLITE" (and it has a little red "NEW" beside it)
4. Click satellite
5. zoom in until you get the best detail of your field

now, here's how to post it in this thread to make it easy on everyone

1. click the button beside the map that says "EMAIL"
(your email will pop up a new message to send with the link text in the body of the message. highlight this link with your mouse and choose "Edit" then "Copy")
2. find this thread and choose "add reply"
3. type your message
4. above your message in the format options area is a button called "http://"
5. click this button, and a little window pops up
6. right click over the text area and choose "paste"
7. hit enter, and another window pops up
8. type in a cool name for your field
9. a bunch of html language will show up in your post

and add the reply.

i'll try this now and see how it goes...

Tyler!

I like to use the Terraserver instead, it has better detail, in my area at least, plus it has coordinates, topo, and a scale so you can measure your strip.

Mine is about 1800', but the dry lake is 3 miles by 1 mile.

Shorty uses an oval runway because his left engine is slower than the right, and results in a left tracking which he conveniently compensated for by designing his runway specially for his Lazair...... :lol:

My own runway is 1800' with a 3 mile extension in case my engines are not developing optimum power, or if I just feel like racing with the cars and motorcycles on the dry lake.... :P

Shannon's runway has trees on all sides to catch his plane in case he tries to fly outside of the property limits... :D
