Hi Mark,

Just confiming the dates is it this Sat and Sun the 26th and 27th.

If so I will be able to attend but I cannot commit to full days (family commitments).

Lets see Epp biplane (check), profile jet (check), extra 300 (check), C-47 (check) packed and ready.

Lyndon.

PS by members do you mean club members (I am not one) or rcgroups members

The weather is changing every few hours, freaky. Saturday is still looking perfect, Sunday now has some wind in the morning, so I say Saturday it is, about 11AM everyone

Pezzer,
Great to hear its going ok now. The launch is always a bit tricky, its pretty wide to hold on to. Mine are multiplying! Theres another little one now. Am going to squeeze an EDF40 in it all going well.
Was good to catch up when you were down (briefly) before the lightning nearly took us all out!

We will watch out for all those obstacles .

A few photos of the day


It was a fantastic day to go flying a glorious 17 degrees with little to no wind (not many golfers either )

A massive turnout of 3 people Mark, Glenn and myself, (quality not quantity ), seriously a few more would have been nice and we are investigating some alternative flying areas.

Some photos of the day with video to follow (didn't get photos of my own planes to busy flying):

The weather certainly was fantastic, would have liked to stay around a bit longer!
It would have been good to get some shots of the SU27.
Did you get one of the A-10? Hope the vids of your DC3 turned out.............
The only photos I took were from the flying wing, but they are pretty ordinary....
Cheers,
Glenn.

I knocked off work early yesterday so thought I`d drop in on the way home at about 2-30 pm. There were no flyers there but I didn`t expect to see anyone there at that time . I had 2 quick flights amongst a couple of golfers .

Indoor Meet


Hi Guys,

Would anyone be interested in an indoor fun fly.

I am experimenting with some cheap indoor models that are very cheap and quick to build.

Just seeking initial interest, and maybe any suggestions for a venue.

Thanks Lyndon
