nice flying

Easter Weekend

For those of you who stayed at home to polish your models this weekend, you missed out on loads of great flying, some great laughs, a couple of great falls, and all with great mates. Cheers boys and girls :)

RC Paraglider - Part 4

Got my chance to go to the cliffs today with the paraglider and after a lot of messing about I got the paraglider to fly - the guys from the Detling club were out in force on the higher part of the cliffs. My flight lasted about 2 minutes (at most) and it was hard work indeed. The best part was that I kept it right in front of me for some time and the control inputs were responsive but my lack of concentration got the paraglider blown back over the edge and the pilot took a tumble and broke his servo arm (poor sod).
Paul from the Detling lads had seen the flight and came over and offered to do the video but with a broken arm there was not going to be any control - O' well try again and see if I can break his other arm - with Paul doing the video... Watch out for part 5.

Easter Weekend - Club Camping & flying

Full sun and plenty of tan oil needed. Loads of our members families took advantage of the special price of £15 per tent / van for the 3 days.
Lots of children running around - Even Steve Hummel was seen on a number of occasions practicing new ground-handling manoeuvers for use around the aero display circuit - He was using a strange contraption which was photographed for all to see...

Club Rules.

At the recent club meeting, 04/04/2011
rules 14 and 15 have been changed and
rule 15a is a new addition.

It was also ruled that any member
wishing to fly with a gas turbine model,
should hold the relevant B certificate.

Once the wording of this rule has been
accepted by members, the club rules will
be further updated.
