Alain I wish U a good trip back to this end...
Take good care of those two, Szallys are fragile beings...
U need to talk to them on lift off, explain that one day the sky's will open and they better fly!!!

Guys IŽll be finally enjoying some sun on my so much expected 3 weeks HOLIDAYS!!!
No planes, family time and some Kite... always need wind wherever I go, or do...

On my return Szally will be waiting... hopefully!
Winter is coming so its time to build!!!

Johan and Sean, I like the graphs on the boxes!!!

Daron's Idea...

Still looking for his Jart!

You are supposed to help him Sean.....
Have fun!

Ja!.......will have to don flame suit for all those thorn bushes! Nobody knows those thorns better than me. I was wondering if those paragliders were not sending him on a goose chase cause there was a little rattling of feathers prior to the spotting......you know, move your cars cause this is where we lay out our canopies.... They where even asking "WHO IS YOUR CLUB CHAIRMAN?"

Its just the depth that changes!!

When Johann built the wing of Zally, he said "instead of shelving it, cause its so heavy, we will fly the sh one t out of it!!" This we did today......literally!! Zally flew rings around Morne's Jart.....OK, he is still learning to handle a Jart, but I think it was the Zally that was VERY FAST!! Then Johann tried to fly it below ground level at full tilt! WRONG!! Obviously Zally came off second best.

Nice photos Sean!
OK, OK....
She did hit the ground at full tilt!
Not just the ground...
but a large rocky outcrop!
The nylon holding bolt gave...
But so did every thing else!

But Sean...
Towards the "end"..
Instead of axial rolls, she was performing huge barrel rolls...
Indicating a "stripped servo" (I think)
Anyway...
She was a Tad slow on the elevator response...

But what a blast!
She was definitely on steroids!

Perhaps we should build them this way!

In the pic, the wing looks fine...
But underneath... Ripped to pieces!

But never fear...
I can't seem to build light!


"Theboxes" were dropped off with Alain...
He wants a yellow and black one!

Thanx guys.

Yes J, I think the servo was stripped. This was quite clear by the "barrel rolls" you showed me before the self destruction!..but then a fast low fly-by was kind of looking for an entry point!!

Well it was not to be confused with the Zally, so if you prefer I'll go for white and red like the proto Jart! Any colour will do, beggar can’t be chooser!

Both packages arrive in Joburg, no problem. I was able to fit them in my suitcase, so they should last the trip to Europe at least!

When is the funeral for Zally?
Please forward my condolences since I won't be able to make it!
I didn't realise tha a rock would be stronger than the Zally!
