No more excuses!!! unless you're from Qld and didn't bring your woolies.

PS to dsfever. My 28cc gasser is NOT underpowered by my oily, smelly 15cc 2stroke glow.
But it IS boring - compared to DS.

Wind was fantastic today, but I think the hail may have ruined things a bit. So, I rebuilt the 450 Pro - new HS-65HB's on the cyclic, put the servo's and engine in the Trainer (no idea how to start it yet or tune the engine??).
What am I becoming?? At least I heard my new planes are on the way.

Friday is looking better for Johanna or PB. Whats Libby's like on a westerly.

Just sticking up for the poor poor neglected powered foamies, Helo's and stinky old balsa gassers when they're banished to the Land Of Never Never once the wind kicks up and their Cousins get a chance to come out to play again...

Hi Ant. Have any of you guys tried the saddle a few hundred metres down the ridge (south) at Libbys? From google it looks steeper and the the east side looks nice and bowl shaped plus its cleared. There is a walking track that heads down that way but I dont know if it goes there.

If i am thinking of the same place there is only grass on the East side but the West side is covered with trees.Unfortunately the tree's go to the top of the ridge and you wouldnt be able to launch over them.You can see the area from where we fly at Libby's.

Hey Joel. I think its further down than that bit. Looking at the terrain and then the satelite on google, it looks clear on both sides. I dont know if you could see it from the normal spot cause it sort of rond a point. I was going to check it out last time I was there but was too busy flying.
Josh

P.s Where is a good place to start looking for old working fridge compressors?
