Further to the above. To be able to fly we ask that you hold valid insurance either with the BMFA or FPV UK. We are not limiting the flying to BMFA A or B license holders.

Yes, for NEAT and E-week in September, but you'll just have to get over to Elmsett if you want to see us before that, should be a good show.

I missed this last year and it looks like i'm going to miss it again this year.

Shame we didn't know a little earlier as i've got to go out with the in-laws and there is no way i can get out of that one as i've already tried but no chance,unless i can come up with a cunning plan so any ideas but they will have to be damn good ones and they would be much appreciated.

Jokes aside i still i hope all that goes have a great day and i will be putting this event on the calendar for next year.

I've seen the banner on the HK website and it looks like it could be a great day out,what with HK doing free BBQ and drinks plus prizes too let alone able to watch the UK show team flying.

Hey Startazz

Sorry you cant make it! It would have been great to finally meet and do some flying. There must be a way for you to wriggle out of your prior engagements

Put me down for a burger!

Dan, would it be possible to pick up a model on the day if I pre-order/pay for it?

Hi PlanePirate

Any Insurance that is valid for flying outside of you own club is fine. I suggested BMFA and FPV UK for those who may not have any yet.

Scratch builds are most definitely allowed. Looking forward to seeing what you have to fly.
