Wet field

Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:08 pm by Gary M Jones

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 …

Club Night - 19th August

Post by Andy Sayle on Wed Aug 18, 2010 8:41 am

Morning all,

Just had a gander at the weather forecast, and it is looking pretty damn good for tomorrow's club night. 7mph wind, nice and warm, what more could we ask for?! After the week I have had, I have decided to sack work off at midday, and head straight down to the field with a gallon of petrol, an armada* of rockets, and a fully charged Tx battery. Anyone else heading over?

Cheers
Andy

Might just bring the Mig for its maiden - Marty has now finished the painting so she is fit to be seen out in public.

I guess thatrs up to you, if you want to get stuck and churn up the field, and quite possible ruin your model then thats up to you.

Just got back myself. Rain stopped play Sad

True to form though, I had 1.5 flights of a little RC rocket glider I was test flying. I built a quick prototype to test out some new little motors (5.5 second burn, 150gram thrust jobbies). The little delta was test chucked, worked great, so out to the strip for a first powered flight. I lit the fuse, Jem held on till I said "chuck"...

I Said "go go go", and Jem chucked the little delta. It sank to the floor, and just as it touched down, the rocket fired. A little bit of a skid, and away it went, about 15m altitude gained, a circuit and a landing. Great.

The next flight was not quite as successful. SO much so, I only class it as half a flight. WE timed the chuck much better, and the boost was good for about 2 seconds. Then it seems a servo failed hard over, and the little delta headed groundwards in a nice gentle spiral. For something that only weighs about 100 grams, it buried itself pretty good!

Roll on some dry weather for more testing Smile

Andy
