Now I know what was wrong with the DOM. It still had a hangover from when it was with Nick in Sweden!!

Or maybe it had withdrawal symptoms, which I, stupidly, did not recognise. It probably just wanted a drink!!!
Cheers!

Watch out for the joiner rod:

Fred:

I have sent you a p.m., for opening prior to assembling the DOM.

Glad it arrived OK.

Cheers,

Christopher

Hey Mick,

Sorry for the late reply !

DOM still in the box, battery charged and receiver ready. Still haven't put it together, but first flight in Ireland got delayed... Snow is back ! Can't get to the local slope Hopefully, next week end, local or big slope down south.

We might have a really small issue with the wing joiners, but I'll sort that out (thanks Christopher )


Anyway, here are a few photos.

Fred

I flew that thing at Secret Spot in what, 2007-2008? Watched Reed DS it effortlessly.

Where to after this?

Slopetrash let me have a quick fly of the DOM when he first recovered it. I think I had only been flying RC a few months. It's doing pretty well to still be in once piece!

It's coming up to me at some point Chris, but I think it's going round the South first. Arrangements well underway to at least get some pics taken with it at the Giants Causeway. A wee fly too, if we can avoid getting thrown off by the ranger!
