Looked at the mild landing damage as I pulled each one out of the car Dave fixed without a real problem seem that the joiner rod had moved on the ventus which is why it had a break out on the wing skin but that was an easy fix. All are ready to go again . Like the easy fixes . The cheapy Ventus flys really nicely without any real vices wont fly inverted but does everything else pretty well pretty good really for the price .

That is some amazing footage.

Am I the only one who thinks these guys need some counseling in risk assessment?

Ok to spread the word WSSS are having another weed clearing outting on Saturday 24th of November. We invite all members and associate members to come along and give a hand to get rid of the Olive trees and continue to improve the Mt Annan slope site. Chainsaws or whipper snippers or Brush cutters are more than welcome ,but even a bush saw to clear the way for those of us with chain saws to get at the main trunk.
besides what else could you do after voting ??? lol.
Anyway hope to see a few of you out there .

Not going to Maiden it now as I discovered the reason the wings flex so much on this one the outter wing tube looked likeit was made from nyrod outer and just let go
Ive cut the wing open ripped out that tube and will be replacing it with silver steel joiner and stainless thin wall tubing. no flex this time
