Open invitation for UK 'AP Fly In' For Sunday 4th

Hi SCRAPS and anyone interested in flying at a venue on the South Downs just outside of the Village of Storrington in Sussex. The location has easy parking close to a field we could fly from.

I await your response,

Gray.

Take Chantry lane to the car park on the top of the Downs. I took a trip up there today and the views were awesome in every direction.

I'm in too,

(Darn, full steam ahead to get the EZ* ready in time!!!

Spoke to Terry yesterday - he is on holiday this week returning Saturday so is unlikely to attend (but you never know).

Hi Gray

I have a bell brushless motor (one from the Twinstar) with a 15A ESC mounted on a ply disk which covers the S400 motor cavity. Not sure about props, I have an 8x4.3 prop at the moment and I have just ordered a 7x6 and 8x6. I will be running Hyperion 1200 mah 3S lipoly (20C) I also bought an EMeter at Sandown so I will try out the various combos to see what's best.

I now have the Pentax Optio back so I am looking to build a forward facing mount for it - looks like that will be Friday/Saturday nights job - I have your mount and some thoughts around my twinstar mount for ideas

Cheers

Sounds good, I recon the 8X6 will give best power, see ya on Sunday. This location should be about 30 minutes from Haslemere. Terry has to come, work on him Dave!

So far:

Myself
David (Hogster) I will collect him.
Paul (English Electric)
DaveB (GliderGuideMan)
Roy (Deadstick)

Any more for a chance in a lifetime AP experience?

Gray…….

Oh B*ll*cks

I'd love to come, but we're off to Charmouth for a week on Friday.

Oh well, hope to get some video and stills of the cliffs and beach etc.

You guys have a good time.

I'm in

I'm just ironing out some problems with my HeliAP ship, but assuming the parts arrive from the states in the next few days I'll be able to take our group photo from the heli

I'll be bringing my AP plane and my little Cyclone too .... this is the first meet I'll have been to where I don't have to dash off just as things are getting going! By the way Gray my Dad's offered to take me there but if you could drop me back that would be super of you.

I've purchased a frequency checker which we can use together with the frequency pegboard I made several eons ago for a meet it was never used for!

Cheers,


David
