Hobby Habit is pretty dear with some things , I got to know quite a few of the guy's there so it was good getting things at a discount haha
Their tracks are decent though!

Bonython Park is still operating but it had been empty for quite a long time due to the crack in the bottom of it, Recently when i was looking at some of the pictures from the groups that run there i noticed they have re lined the pond and re filled it.
They were going to turn it into a Children's fun park with a little island thing in the middle with bridges going to it for the kids..
But then a heap of the model boaters rocked up and the council changed their minds :D and are keeping it as the pond!

I can't seem to find any of these. Got any road/street names? (ok the Parks is a nice tarmac rc track....if only I had an on-road car ;))

Bradley Grove in Mitchell Park
Is that in Mitchell Park Reserve or at the Sturt Rd end?.....I can't see anything that resembles a track from satellite pictures.

While I'm here I guess I can mention that the old West Lakes BMX track is still usable (where Old Port Rd meets Bower Rd)

I wonder if you'd be allowed to chase the popeye around in the Torrens in the city?

I have seen RC boats in West lakes also.
