the Dom is now in Northern Ireland. I have it to do some flying with it here, before it goes on to it's next destination.

Thanks Fred for dropping it off today

Unfortunately no. I hurt my back just after Fred dropped it off and I'm only now starting to get back on my feet.

Hope to get out in the next couple of weeks with the biys from NIMSA and wring it out a bit!!

I would like to get her to the West Coast for a few sessions.

I'll take it in Idaho once it ever gets back to the US and you get through with it. If it's in the winter I'll snowshoe in to the flying hill.....seriously.

It would be nice to hear that it had flown anywhere recently.

I still have it in Northern Ireland. Had it out the last two weekends and both weekends had gremlins and couldn't fly!!

Replaced a servo connection during the week and hope to get it out this weekend, before it heads for Galway, Ireland

Did you get the gremlins sorted. Actually I think they are "little people" getting at it.

Any news??????

Cheers, all,

Christopher (still wondering if the DOM will fly again)

Gremlins sorted and it's now with Ricahrd Boyd in the West of Northern Ireland. I never got the chance to fly it after getting it right, but I know Richard will. He tries to get out at least a couple of times a week

Were will she fly ?
My local mountain is the Sperrins in Co.Tyrone so that will be the first place for her to fly!
I pray the weather changes and I can get up to the North Coast and the Glens of Antrim.
Home of the Giants Causway and some of the most mystical scenary in Ireland.

Hi all , I need help !
I put the Dom on charge yesterday and was getting a circuit break alarm.
On investigation the battery earth wire has completely eroded !
Has anyone any idea were the battery is located as I donot want to have to carve up too much of the Dom.

Sorry Richard, I switched out one of the servo cables because of a bad connection in that. It seemed to be charging OK for me, but the day we had it on the hill there was a beep coming off it. Wouldn't have passed it on without fixing it if I'd realised what it was.
