As an alternative field to Jakkur, we could also use Hoskote lake bed for flying.  Ofcourse, you do not have a very level patch for airplanes.  You could manage a high wing trainer, but i doubt you would want to risk a good tail dragger or a big model.

For helis its definitely a best place you could find.

You need to drive down on Old Madras road, just before the hoskote town, you'll find a huge open field on your left.  Theres an old bridge kind of structure where you need to take a left and find an enterance to the lake bed. 

Regards,
Adarsh

Thanks Adarsh  Clap

I request fliers from other cities also to post their hubs in separate threads.  If you can include Google Maps links, that would be great.  If those Google maps links are annotated, it would be even better Roll Eyes   For an example of annotated Google Maps links, please see the links below.

Apart from helis, electric flyers who belly land their planes would also love the place. Only problem is it gets water logged during the monsoon season.

Here are some old pics I had of the site

Are there any RC modellers in and around Electronics City, Bangalore or can drive down here.  I can seek permission from my Organisation to use the cricket ground for RC practice on Sundays...

Yes, the ground is free on Sundays.  If I get a group of 10 people I can put my best efforts.  Also, there is a large open space just behind my home in Electronics City.  It belongs to the state Government and we can use it as much as we like here.  The cricket ground is posh though...

Lets catch up nevertheless at the least at the ground behind my home on Sunday?

@phoenixsunil: that'd be awesome! To be honest I'm not sure how regularily I can come out there but Hoskote is pretty much the same distance so I guess it won't matter much Smiley. Really looking forward to it!

Great find guys... if we have enough people we can meet up regularly to fly there. I live nearby to BEML/HAL so this would suit me as well. Smiley

Today we went in search of an alternative for hoskote lake bed as its flooded. I came to know by locals that government is planning to fill up the lake in the next 3-4 years by diverting all excess water from nearby lake. So even after the rainy season, flying there might not be possible.

We found quite a big place, around 3km from toll-gate. Unfortunately here people are flying powered gliders and there is lot of crowd school kids+ village guys. Slowly their curiosity might fade away. Place looks good for fomies atleast fornow. There is around 500 mts of mud road from main road.
Here are the pics.

I can assure you that the map is correct. Did you go the location marked "runway" ? That is where the flying happens now. Where did you lose track ? May be I can add more instructions on the map there.

Where are you in Bangalore ? You could try tagging along somebody near you.

I am located in frazer town.
Last time when I went to hoskote I took the first left after toll which was not tarred toad . I didn't find anyone .
I came back to the main road travelled 2 km further and took a left again where there was a kalyana mandapam and travelled in that road 1.5 km , there was open ground but no one was flying.

Just confused !

Is it before the toll or after the toll ?

It's before toll.
Open the following URL:
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=NH+75&daddr=Unknown+road&hl=en&ll=13.066728,77.766809&spn=0.035868,0.066047&sll=13.055323,77.764948&sspn=0.002242,0.004128&geocode=FeY0xwAdo5iiBA%3BFUiaxwAdiHKiBA&t=h&mra=me&mrsp=0,1&sz=19&z=15

Follow the route mentioned in the URL. The satellite imagery does not show a runway but it exists hardly 200-300 mtrs to the right hand side road of point B.
