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.

Here it is folks - and both days went to plan and the toffee's hit the field - Mr Blobby flew very well but Mr Noel Edmunds did not come and visit as we had hoped. Never mind as the children enjoyed it - look how fast they can run - great to do and fun to see...

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

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.

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.
