Olathe Centennial Field
This site is a full fledged R/C flying site. The field is northeast of Olathe, Colorado. It offers eveything for the powered or non-powered R/C flyer. There is also a very nice and long slope on the East side of the field that caters to the slope flyers. During the hot summer months, great thermals can be caught in the entire area. All flying activities moved to the new field about May 1st 2003 and several activities have already been held there.
