Carl Goldberg Freedom 20

Supermodel Melanie holding my Carl Goldberg Freedom 20 in Smithsburg, Maryland (1990ish)I was bale to fly my Carl Goldberg Freedom 20 from the back yard of my house in Smithsburg, Maryland. It was a great setup and one that allowed me to fly a lot of radio control, control line, and free flight airplanes, and also allowed me to launch quite a few model rockets. Then, houses started being built in the corn fields and that put an end to the convenience. Consequently, the number of flights went way down.
