If he really did pull start it from the front then he should have known better.

Thanks guys

Gimm, this is but part of the evidence of why I couldnt make it flying yesterday... comes under diminished responsibility and all that jazz...

Sorry I didnt get back to you Chances, aforementioned diminished responsibility still applies... there was nary a dribble left in the 1 litre bottle of rocket fuel

Still feeling a tad fuzzy n blurry around the edges, early night tonight, me thinks...

Haha, sounds like you had a good one. I figured there was only ever a 10% chance of you making it. Nice cake!

Some vids from the weekend that you missed, featuring TRJW and Nutbag:

This is two minutes of vid filmed from two different planes.
FPV - Same 2 minutes of footage from two planes. (4 min 21 sec)




What we get up to when the goggles are off.
Eagle Lauch n Crash (1 min 31 sec)

We put some rudder trim in the eagle and did lots of launches with different trims. At one stage it glided inverted down to the ground every time! Eventually it was balanced perfectly as a lawn dart, last flight of the day for the eagle


Did that ground recorder work for you? Don't think I ever found out. Hope it did, would enjoy the six pack

The eagles do bounce pretty well but lawn darted from 200mm...... thats why hot water and gorilla glue are my main tools of trade. My eagle has copped a flogging from the kids but it still flies......... somehow.

Yeah, the recorder works fine Will have a 6 pack on ice next time i come up.

Good price.

Pity that deal wasn't available last week when I ordered a new cam from them. Oh well, got the CMQ1993X (IR filtered version of the PZ0420) coming.
