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 …

My dad is taking me if someone can take me up on the buddy lead (fingers crossed some one will as I haven't flown properly in over 3 weeks!) otherwise there will be no point in me going Crying or Very sad

Sam I'm the wrong mode or I should say you are, and I also fly superior Futaba gear so cannot buddy with your JR/Spektrum gear, so I cannot help you but I'm sure there will be some others there to help Wink

I'm hoping to nip out for a few flights tomorrow, probably with the chucky glider to keep me warm! Not sure when, and for how long yet though...

Oh well
you see unless I can CONFIRM that I will have someone to take me up, my parents wont take me.
Anyway I went to Abafraw dunes to try some slope soaring, it was really naf no lift at all even with 20mph winds.
So I got out the breeze when the winds had gone down to 13 and WOW I was AMAZED!!!
Great flyer, loops, rolls, inverted, knife edge, stall turns and climbing vertical (this is a nose heavy trainer!!!) at 3/4 throttle on a 15c 3s li-po, I want a 40C!!!!!!!
Then we went to visit my nain (who has broken her back) and She gave me a tin of yummy bicys and £10!!!!
Couldnt of gone better and I made my nain fell happy!

Great day!
Very Happy

Glad you had a good day mate,sorry to hear about your nan,I have back problems so I know how bad it can get.
If you can get to the field and you aren't sure if anyone can buddy you if you can bring your heli I can stand with you when you fly.
I'm not the best person in the world but I know the basics as I was taught by the ultimate jedi (Dave) and the nutty proffesor (Zaidy). Smile

[color=blue]Well what a fantastic day. I counted 8 cars on the field with one just outside the gate and two outside in the lay bye Very Happy Very Happy
Everything that you could want in a day at the field, great weather and great companny.
We set up Zaids new flkybarless head on the 700 LE and it was a fairly painless process. It flies well and looks very clean without the flybar and washout mixer. I maidened my 700 nitro and have to say that I am in love. The whole expierience of a 90 size helicopter is awsome. They seem to sit better and in the hover are stable. Everything is done with less fuss than the smaller models . I flew my 600 nitro after the 700 and it felt like buzz box, noisy and twitchy. The only downside is that I burnt around 1/2 gallon of fuel in the 700.
John Bow was busy with the camera so I feel a few pictures coming on. The other downside was that Allan could not find an examiner to try his A test. Guess they all stayed home.
