Wet field

Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

I'm about 95% sure yes. The cone at the intersection of the fin and horizontal stab (braking parachute I think) and the little overhang on the top of the Jet pipe give it awa I reckon.

I'm wondering if it will be EDF, or turbine powered though. I'm putting money on EDF, and judging by the size of the control surfaces, I reckon it will be about 48" wingspan, possibly a little bit smaller.....

EDF! No prop hanging then Rolling Eyes
Damage to my new toy limited to the covering. Depressed covering on top of port wing . May come out with gentle heat but there are sharp edges to the depression which may split (probably caused by square poll thrust into box). Awaiting Globalrc instructions as to actions.

Nope. But if you spec the power system correctly, you should be able to "fan hang" Wink

Allan is it just the film that's damaged or is it in a sheeted area?

Brian, Just the film has a sharpish depression, no structural damage. But, as I said earlier there are sharp edges to it in places. It looks like a square pole has been thrust into the box. The corners of the poll causing the sharp edges. In total its only a small area but in a very visable place. If the covering should split on heating, to draw out the depression, then ***@@@!!!!

Just had a phone call from Globalrc. Hold tight on doing anything, the've put a claim in to TNT and they may want to see the damage. Globalrc will call me tomorrow to advise.

Oooooh, get you and your afterburner!

I assume it will be one of the LED ring type burners, not the fact your packs will be on fire? Have you already sourced one of them, because I have had one on my "to do" list for a while now....
