    I live in California Woodland Hills specifically. We cannot fly in parks, government lands of any kind and our local flying field no longer allows flying AP. So where does one go to fly their Inspires or Phantoms around here or anywhere in California for that matter.?

    Thanks for the info I hope you have some good news.

    Ken.

    Do you have a link to the rules that say you can not fly on government lands of any kind? If so, hoe do you know what lands are the governments and what are not? Presumably 'government' here is limited to state government.

    You would have to go on their website for individual States and terrain! USDA does have some TFR's so be aware

    USDA Forest Service - Recreation, Heritage and Wilderness

    If I still lived in So. Oregon, I'd be burning through more than a few batteries on National Forest land per this doc:
    http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprd3845323.pdf
    Print it and carry it.

    Check the individual forest district websites as posted by PB30X above for any specifics. I did a quick check on some places I know in Cali and Orygun. Found nothing that said we couldn't fly except for the restrictions around forest fires.
    Follow the rules and have a good time! I'm envious knowing the opportunities.

    Look into flying on BLM lands as well.

    I live in southern Oregon, so I do take advantage of unpopulated, undeveloped and remote areas. That USDA document has contradictory information in it. Fortunately the document is primarily "tips" for UAS operators.
