      San Diego tank battles are some of the funniest in the SouthWest US. They tend to be more long range firing, a lot more wide sweeping counter maneuvers and crashing though light brush to achieve advantages.

      Personal I can’t wait for this weekends event.

      If you have not attended a SD tank battle day or it’s been a while you are missing out on some epic battles and a steep yet fun learning curve about RC tanks.

              Have a great time battling gentlemen. Sunday is a religious day for my family. I won't be able to come to SD. Maybe next time, if I could get the the battle date early, I will find a location in SD to attend my religious ceremony and then go battle with you

                Sorry you can't make it. Rich has scheduled the SD battles on Sundays as a convenience for local batttlers; I and another are r/c flyers, and we have club contests that we are involved in on Saturdays.

                  Some photos and videos of the between battling fun are up on my Instagram @ FSTTANKS.

                  Sorry I did not take a lot of battling action photos as the fighting was rather too fast and intense for taking time to shoot photos.

                    Every time I battle there, I like the field more. Open ground style maneuvers, long range sniping, it’s great. Kudos to Rich for finding it.

                      Bob I went through a lot of fields checking them out before finding that one. Our first meet was at the corner of Miramar College in a park and ride lot and used the dirt field that is now a wilderness preserve, fenced off with trails.

                      it’s tough to find a good place to do it as we experienced when we had to find a temporary field for a little while.

                        I know of another great location in SoCal, but sadly it’s not in SD or LA. 😉😉
