Just checking in again, after 3 years!

So its sutherlands park that the saturday morning flying happens? Which field do you all fly and park your cars on?

And which way do the sports traffic fill the park

If the weather is nice enough, I might try to visit this weekend.

Was great to bump into you today Owen. You certainly haven't lost any of your flying skills since we last saw you!!

We mainly fly in the most 'southerly' oval.

Come in on the driveway off Gay st and then turn left after the first set of change rooms.

I flew (re-maidened) my RV9 with the new radio today (Aurora 9) and it went great in the breeze. the 42-50 really pushes it along on 4S but it slows down nicely with the flaps. Also so love the Hitec telemetry for the lipo voltage!!

Anyway I'm back to work tomorrow but look forward to catching up again in a few weeks.

Velox

I tried buying it but the communication broke down his end..he just stopped txting then A mate tried to buy the Velox but Connor is a Knob ....he turned around an said he was being pidantic cause he asked to many ??'s ....but then finally arranged a pickup whuich was at the local park mind you,then failed to pickup the phone when we got there AE,we waited nearly an hour so we reported him to gumtree...
This person needs to stop pi55ing in peoples pockets,do the deal an move on.
If my m8 catch's up with him he'd better watch out

Good old Connor....has spread his wings from stuffing people around on RCG to Gumtree eh?

I had quite a few dealings with him but no more.

Sorry to hear about your plane though Jeff. Hope not too much damage?

I'm only back in Perth for a week this time but I'll probably get a chance to crash a few myself before I head back next Friday

Fingers crossed the carnage can start on Saturday (wx depending).

Hi fellow SOR flyers i see 1st timer is only 2 kms from me.

I live in Belmont and have only started flying this year with the Hobby Champ then the UM T28 then the UM Polecat and now im onto the UMX Beast 3D which is still in one piece Ive also got the UMX Mig and Sbach 3D which are prepped and waiting for me to gain some skill for them. Ive been going down to my local park which is Centenary Park which has a cricket ground behind its lake and ive followed the rules about other people on the park and havent had a prob yet with anyone complaining. I put 3 batteries through the Beast this morning at the park and it was magic with very little breeze.

I googled Sutherlands Park and hope to get down there soon so i can meet some of you and learn a bit more.. I also have a HD video camera and a pretty good camera setup which i use for photographing birds in flight and now also rc birds. Pic is from Yokine park flyers meet.
