I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

5.45pm Richys car was full of gliders and people (Rich,Me,Roy and Bri) and heading to the Orme, a fantastic evenings gliding was had by all.

I returned to face the demons and fly a glass ship (my new Micro Floh) for the first time in a couple of years boy it feld good Sunday 4.7.10 Icon_biggrin Sunday 4.7.10 Icon_biggrin , right up untill the landing when i managed to strip a servos on a not that bad a landing Sunday 4.7.10 Icon_evil

I felt somwhat better when Rich did the same on an identical model and identical servo Sunday 4.7.10 Suspect , Roys Floh however excaped the curse, Also saw Bri`s Vector III go for the first time, Awsome, just Awsome! and Rich's Samba was also in great form (I really like that glider)

Thanks for the lift Rich, had a great night. Im now off to look at buying a bigger moldie and some gear trains Sunday 4.7.10 Icon_exclaim

Yes the Orme was overflowing with Micro Flohs last night the wind was slightly off the normal face and the sun was a PIA but there's little you can do about that Suspect We had a good fly and left around 9.30. The gear stripping incidents with Rich and Marks models were amazing really as their two landings were quite benign and it was quite a surprise to find they'd both stripped gears Surprised

4 servos Tim if you use the rudder on the V like we all do (although the rudder is hardley used to be honest but you would just end up with more lead in the nose)! So 2 in the fuse and 2 in the wing

I lost a left ALI Rich lost a right ALI, we were contemplating hackswing the wings in half and gaffer taping one good one

Good stuff! I was up there about 1.30 ish, nott too long after the rain stopped. Stopped in on the way back from drinking far too much scrumpy at a party on Anglesey on Saturday night. Whipped the prop off my jibe, and chucked it off into a galeforce wind. Far to light,so I added abou half a pound of lead, and tried again.

It made the powered flights look positively pedestrian! landing was fun too, the thing just glides on and on, even with a large helping of spoilerons!
