NO we were not the first "nuts" there - four others beat us to it.
Want to try it? The Zagi is just £40 and some parcel tape - a couple of quid. Two old 148 servo's you put in the bin and that old 35Mhz Rx and a battery and that all you need to enjoy this side of the hobby.
The Zagi is almost unbreakable - the impacts it takes are unbelievable and you just pick it up and throw it into the sky again...
If you want advice or help - ask - loads of us have made them...

If your passing the field please cast a glance over to see if anyone is messing about with our gate. They have to be taking tools over there as its so far.
The short steel scaffold pole with its two brackets have been taken together with 2 padlock and the steel locking pin... No scrap value!
As a temporary measure the below "mod" has been done till it can be sorted The gate can't be lifted at this time...

We cycled down to Bartons point to see the event on Saturday and we really enjoyed our time spent there. The flying skills were second to none and everyone was enjoying themselves in the lovely weather conditions. The real bonus was that it was free to get in, which is amazing in this day and age and the refreshments were very reasonably priced as well.... an ice cream with a flake was a very welcome addition whilst viewing a flying display. A big thank you to the organisers for staging, what must be one of the most premier events on Sheppey. Roll on next year.

So you fancy yourself as a pilot!Try the full size WW1 fighter plane and see how you fair - in combat.
This is a real cockpit with a real joystick and firing button
NOT A COMPUTER SCREEN...
Your "score" is kept so you can see if you have the ability to have stayed alive... The simulator has a number of settings - this one is the "Tame" setting.

Metcheck has been updated and now has some new options.
Open up Metcheck from the useful links section of our main page and there is now a blue toolbar with a hobbies tag - click on this and then "Model Aviation" which will open up another page.
You will then see a dropdown box in the middle of the page "select a model flying club".
Click on this and a list of the current flying sites will appear, with Bartons Point MFC 5th from the top at the moment.
Click on Bartons Point and it will open up the weather forecasts specific to the location of our field.
Hopefully they can get the predictions right and it will be useful.
All the best, Dave

TURN THE SOUND UP - THE ELECTRIC TEXAN SOUNDS THE SAME AS THE REAL THING SOUNDS - SCROLL DOWN A FEW POSTS BELOW... Hi Peter,
I think this is the same plane - don't know planes to well. I was at an airshow in Canada last year and recorded this - sounds great. Clip is very short - can only send 9mb. Hope you don't mind me emailing rather than posting on your blog as I was not sure how to post the video and pictures wouldn't be the same . Popped down the field last Wendsday ( see I didn't leave it till the spectacular) Only for an hour as I was helping to marshall the island run, Landing strip looks great well done to everyone. Have fun regards Paul. ( speedy brit ).

Just to let you know the field will be open tomorrow for flying from noon.
Park your car in our car park and walk all your equipment and planes to the field.
No cars are to drive onto the field at this stage. The field still needs to be looked after. Enjoy your new field.
