Idea
How about an Internet PSS mega Fly In****new ideas***

Heres an idea

what if we said on saturday the 'x' of October at say 5pm GMT in Uk use your local time we all fly at the same time on loads of slopes and countries, photograph and video our PSS models all over the world. we then post them here with say a 48hr time limit to get the post up live. after that we all vote on the best static, prop , jet and flying from the videos just like an old fashioned postal competion.....how many aircraft simultaneously in the air can we get....come on guys what dya think.......

If its already been done or you all think its dumb ....i will lock myself back in the garage.........

Ok may have jumped the gun a bit here. the idea was for simultaneous flying but the shout has gone up what about Aus and NZ. so perhaps we run it within a time slot within one day, pictures must also include that days newspaper for instance as proof of day(my god you lot are distrusting) this was for fun..... some suggestions wayyyyy to serious already....

how about streaming live video to a web site there must be someone on forum who could advise on that...I know get back in the garage Dave......

Nooooo Everyone is invited. However because of time diffs we just cant do a simultaneous fly in(as pointed out by some antipodean slopers my time suggestion was very usa/europe biased (not intentionally i just didnt think this through enough...mmm heard that before)) so after a few PMs here are some ideas.... not all mine what do you think

1 we pick a day to fly not a time.

2 Take photo or video or both of plane with that days newspaper for date conf.

3 if no wind that day dont worry send in static photo for judging.

3 allow say 48 hrs for all posts (4pics per model and say 3min video posted to youtube) to be made. maybe 1 pic with you in, always nice to put face to names.

4 allow 24 hrs for voting. each person posts their vote for satic and flight and you cant vote for yourself.

5 after 24 hrs closing post made on forum. any votes after that not counted.

6 announce winners.......have party drink beer etc etc....

7 winners get trophy delivered by post.



Now i will donate a couple of trophies with postage to the winners just to get us going.

probably better to do it over a month at least that way everyone could get a chance to score the right wind fo a given slope/model ?

I can see the logic in that. My orig idea was sort of spontaneous..a sort of SNAP whos flying NOW moment.

Maybe what we could do is say "hey from 1- 2pm this saturday lets all take a pic of what we are doing PSS wise, maybe bulding, flying, watching...crashing.

post the pics and get a snapshot of the world of PSS

then we could all vote on our favourite picture (maybe just cos its funny etc)

it was the snapshot of the globe effect i was after..

a sort of informal worldwide get together and chit chat afterwards..

hope that makes sense.
