It has also been added to the list of 2014 Spectacular.

Dave flying his tri-copter Boxing Day

This is Dave testing his tri-copter. After this flight all was well so I was privileged to be the one to put on the FPV goggles while Dave flew the drone. I have to say its a weird experience because when the camera on the drone leans over it makes you feel like your leaning over - but your not - however you do tend to lean your body... Quite disorientating I have to say but a fantastic experience. I can see why FPV is a growing field and I bet when Dave was flying the tri-copter he was dying for the time he could fly it and have the goggles on at the same time...

Sunny Day

Callum is flying a mini quad about, you can see it some of the time.

Is this what your looking for Paul ?


Hi all
Would like my first post to be a lil introduction, my first introduction to your club was the summer show this year okay I have watched from afar ie the shingle bank for years. The show was a super success enjoyed it all :) Would like to thank jan and slippery when wet for giving me the confidence and the invite to your blog and to the field yesterday everyone seems well friendly and we had a good larf :) me a total noob to rc flying but was still made to feel at home thank you all. As I have already said to Jan it has taken me 3 decades to get around to start flying okay okay not always flying but attempting to fly more like it ;) Have spent the last 2 years with google my only friend been a long haul but fun trouble is never ventured outside my garden when nobodies looking ;) so very limited unless google and I can build a plane that can do vertical takeoffs I must veture out into the open... thx for listening, have fun :)

No Glue...

Terry's Jet Turbine

Now we go from the very old (Blackburn Monoplane) to the very new...
Not often I catch Terry flying but here he is flying his jet turbine which sounded very nice indeed and flew like it was on rails....

Blackburn Monoplane with wing warping.

Such a fantastic scale model of the Blackburn Monoplane which was so far ahead of its time. You can clearly capture the moment in time when you see this model fly... Enjoy.

Skills Needed To Build & Fly A Plane

Blackburn Monoplane 1912

I have waited a long time for this plane to come down to the flying field again and today I was rewarded - however I only had my old camera to hand... The Blackburn Type D, sometimes known as the Single Seat Monoplane, was built by Robert Blackburn at Leeds in 1912. It is a single-engine mid-wing monoplane. This model has the full wing warping system which works very well indeed. A very majestic model in the sky with class...

A Quick Flight.

If you are going to look at this video please ensure you have a bucket to hand - in case your seasick...
This video is 3.8 faster than it should be which can cause dire consequences for you tummy.
You have been warned.

Simons Maiden

Simon said - it was going to be some taxi trials but if it felt right he might take it for its maiden. Without further ado he opened the throttle and it came hurtling towards me and then it was off the ground - would I get a haircut as it headed towards me!!! So much for taxi trials...

FPV - Jans First Flight

After my flight I got Jan to have a go - This little plane does its job well and the camera works a treat. View the video in full screen if you can.

Spyhawk FPV? Plane - First Try

When I posted that I had this plane someone asked where is the film... Bit boring to use just at the field so I did a quick hop to a few places on the island - It's was a bit windy - as you will see. I cant upload it as an HD video as it would take all night to upload from my slow upload location. This plane will take off and fly & land on a postage stamp... Now fitted "half view glasses" - so I can see the model all the time but the glasses have a small in-built LCD screen which means I only have to shift my vision to see the screen - the model is ALWAYS visible so not truly FPV but safer with this little model and better than the Tx in-built LCD screen during bright days... See what you think.

We Must Not Forget To Thank Our Lawn Groundsman

The grass was cut so well this year so a special video was produced to thank our lawn groundsman.
Our club was good enough to buy him a small mower however for a six acre site it was taking him ages to cut however, our lawn is cut better than the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis number one court.
Take a look.

Hi All
Just a reminder that it is the clubs big yearly event this weekend.
We hope to see lots of you there as this is the clubs chance to share our great flying site with
guest pilots from around the country, also to show off our great hobby to all the non flyers that attend to watch the event.
We are having a bring and buy stall, so this is your chance to sell those unwanted models and bits and pieces that you need to move to make space for more models and bits and pieces lol.
There will also be a couple of trade stands.
Food and refreshment on site.
All that's left to hope for is good weather, good flying and that all that attend have a fantastic time.
See you there

Sunday, 7 July 2013


I have been looking at this simple FPV set-up for many months but the price was just too high but then Kings Lyn Models started stocking the Spyhawk and they cut the price so I placed my order. Here it is and any video will follow soon (I hope). Regards Peter.

Wednesday, 3 July 2013


Just a normal member of the public out for a walk with his two children who was very interested in the model planes so what better way to fuel his future interest than give him a go - using the new updated BMFA insurance scheme which covers novice pilot training up to three flights - so buddy lead to the rescue together with Adrian and Dave and away we go.
This is the way to teach people to fly safely - Thanks Adrian & Dave & the new BMFA insurance.

Hi all - Went along to the new Modelworld Industrial Unit - so much more stock I ended up buying a load of gear. This is now a modelmakers shop as they now have good stocks for making the models. Stocks of Balsa are excelent, sheet & blocks together with leading and trailing edge strips - cant remember that being in stock for a long time. Accessories - now a good range with fuel proofer and a good selection of props...
It's easy to find now at Sittingbourne and is our nearest shop. Go along and see.
PS - Tea machine right by the door...

Oleos Wanted.

Long shot - Looking for two steel (tatty as hell) sprung oleos at around 120mm to take a fair weight - Someone just might have two of them in the bottom of a box. I am going to cut and mod them so I am not worried about how they look as long as the suspension functions - please let me know a price and I will make that old box a bit lighter for you next time you get it out....
In case your wondering what I am after them for its for the project below - she is a very old lady who I am now trying to make look a lot younger again by getting out all the old "prangs" and botched repairs done over many years together with the most awful paint job which also has a nice coat of yellowing pickling varnish making her wrinkles look so much older than she actually is... You can see here that the camera lies well. Will keep you all updated as work goes on at full steam.

Jan's Hurricane Update & something New

The engine in Jan's Hurricane has now been run up and sounds sweet as only a four stroke engine can, engine cowling has now been fitted and I am so pleased I installed the engine inverted instead of ruining the exhaust ports with a side mounted engine - so thats that for the Hurricane for now but now I had better show the OTHER Shuttleworth Collection plane Jan now has - She now owns two of the Shuttleworth Collection planes and soon she will have more planes than me! Beat You To It Roy - Where Is Yours!

Interested in going slope soaring today – going to go to the cliffs at Minster around 2pm.
Interested. No chance of doing any other flying in this weather / wind but the cliffs ridge lift will be vertical and even a brick will fly... (You can bring any coloured brick you want to).

Other activities include snow boarding, mud sticking / rescue, snow blizzard training, demoralisation training and of course last but not least model battery endurance and model-floating-in-the-sea competition (I won the latter few years back).
Well are you interested in having some real fun!!!!!! Dust off that model or grab a brick and see all us other "nuts" there. Sorry for short notice but its due to it being a "wind type thing".

I took the dogs down for a walk and had a good look at our flying site. There is slightly less standing water but it seems it's going to take a while before we can drive onto the field again...
I suspect it will be heli's and foamies for a while unless you hump your gear over by foot...

Hi all. Got a brand new pair of Maplin's Medium sized heated gloves for Xmas but they are too small... Offering them FREE to anyone in our flying club who can use them - a wife or girlfriend who has to endure the winter flightline perhaps... They work so well as I used a pair many years ago at my telescope. Just give me a call - Regards Peter / Broken Wing.

You Do Get Close....

Our Helicopter Flight along the Thames recently... This was the helicopter crash site.
You can just see the red crane jib... Shame the pilot lost his life...

Further to Slip's old video the solution is on the attached picture above the 'O' in Castrol. That's me with Rodney Johnson to my right.

New Years Day

This small heli has a very big heart...

First Flying Of The Year

The sun was out all day and although our flying field is still sodden a few ventured down to fly and enjoy.
