I favour the approach described by John. Come in parallel to runway, apply bootful of rudder at touchdown. Takeoff is generally ok with rudder correction until moment of liftoff. Rudder elevator types can be much trickier - I prefer going sans U/C on a 3 chan.
"Of course, if the flying of ANY model would result in over flying a crowd line, or pits area, then the thing to do is simply not fly that model at that time."
See the previous post with quote about common sense.
Also, novice pilots sometimes lack the confidence to make a clear decision either way about flying (or not!) and/or takeoff direction. Some folks just simply lack common sense!

I manage o.k John, flying rudder elevator doesn't make me less competent, nor does flying the likes of Cubs or Tiggies or any other sort affected adversely by cross winds, I know what's going to happen, so I either deal with it or don't fly. Your last sentence I agree with, but would add, if people need help it's available.
