Not entirely sure about that one but it'll depend on the location and the weather

You need an easily packable AP plane for all this travelling!

Haven't really thought about location, all suggestions welcome. I am open to a bit of slope soaring or whatever really. I guess weather and wind will play a major part in February!!

Cheers

I had been thinking about arranging a meet this coming weekend at Harting Down, but maybe we could do it on the 11th?

If the wind direction did'nt play ball we could move to Butser...

What do people think?

I'll 90% be free on the 11th. Don't mind where we go, slope or not!

Should actually have a plane this time

Yes, I've often dreamt about flying a little heli or park flyer round a hotel grounds But it once took me 4 hours to get a laptop and A/V kit into Zimbabwe - I dread to think what the numbnuts in immigration would make of a radio, lipo's etc

Harting down looks a good location. Can you get out this comming weekend Paul? Must get your EZ* flying. The weather is at the moment, looking very good for the end of the week!

Garry, when you have some time read this thread:

MNG is a former SCRAPS member now living in Australia. You could possibly relate to his experience.

Thanks Gray, excellent link. I've read one of MNG's other African threads as well, very interesting. And yes, I certainly relate.....
