I fly in George Kendall Riverside Park, Ermington. The place gets very flooded which is why there are no soccer pitches etc on it which is good and bad depending on the weather!

As well you should be. These are the 'Kodak Moments' we strive for more often than not.

Great pics. Looks like you captured a typical wet day landing c.1945.


About the prop....
I did notice a slight improvement over the stock FMS 10x8 4 blade prop using an APC 12x8 2 blade.
Has anyone tried a 12x12???

12 x12 you would have to change the ESC for sure. I have thought about it.

Depends which way you're looking at the prop. From inside the cockpit the Merlin spins clockwise
