Guess what, I'm going flying in a real life spitfire

Thought I'd treat myself for my birthday nxt wk
, but im booking it for later in the year when its warmer, and this opportunity won't come around again

Check it out, I'm going to go for the platinum package.

Sooo excited I can't wait, especially the barrel roll around a helicopter !

That looks like a lot of fun! However - according to what it says on the website, you fly in the helicopter, not the Spitfire.

Oh poo, didnt realise id typed "IN" instead of with. DOH!I got excited and caught up in the moment while typing there's no way they'd do passenger rides i doubt they have the insurance to cover that, and I'm sure it would be ALOT more price wise. gonna be an amazing experience being that close in flight

As for flying RC still looking grim for the rest of the wkrain and snow gone now we have winds. Have flown once in the past couple of wks

Dam this rubbish weather in this country it's getting worse

Wind Blows.

It's been non-stop around here. Snuck in a couple batteries with the Dynam Sbach, but it was already picking up before I finished. I've flown my heli's indoors so much that my MSRx now needs new blades, new main motor, and new tail motor, and my Nano is down for some more serious repairs. I'm simply going to have to buy myself a mini-vapor, but that color scheme is so stupid looking. It needs something a little more . . . manly.

That's all I managed to fly is Msrx indoors but have to be careful it's a little beast with the BL motor. Daren't even get my mcpx out my lounge is only small and something will get broke eventually

I may get out to the field today. The wind is pretty calm, but there are a few showers around. Tomorrow looks pretty good if it doesn't happen today.

mixed day. crashed my carbon cub, needed only slight repairs, the motor on my blu-baby is squealing at any throttle setting. However in the evening the winds died completely and I had four brilliant flights with my um as3x spitfire. what a pleasure to fly this evening. I had low blazing passes at knee level and flights that buzzed my head three to four inches above me. ahhhhhh
