Gate post broken

Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Control Line Day Reminder

Post by Allan Patrick on Sun Jul 20, 2014 10:52 am

Hi folks

Just a reminder that the Control Line Day is on the 2nd August - 2 weeks from today

Dig out those models!

C/L stuff inc lines, kits and everything else can be ordered from Den Saxcoburg of Den's Modelling Supplies - http://www.densmodelsupplies.co.uk/index.php?c=handles,_lines__clips

Also Hobbyking for kits (much of which duplicates Den Saxcoburg's items) http://www.hobbyking.co.uk/hobbyking/store/__1185__1184__Planes_Parts-Control_Line.html

If you're going to fly a Z62 on C/L invest in a parachute Wink

Perhaps a concrete plinth for the pilot to hang on to as he tames the beast!  Smile

Well, I've just been looking at the forecast. Unfortunately at this moment it doesn't look too brill but fingers crossed

As this is the first time we've had a C/L day I've no idea of the level of interest so my plan was to be at the field by 9.30 and to arrange flying as people arrived

If people from our club want to meet up at the Whistle Stop Cafe I'm up for that

I've no interest in control line but will be there to help & have a go, I'm sure it can't be that hard releasing a model tied to a bit of wire

I was thinking that lying on the ground, under the flight path, camera in hand, and try to get a photo of the control line whizzing past, with a quad above.....

Is this event Saturday or Sunday? Allan's first post on this thread dated Sunday July 20th says two weeks from "today" but August 2nd is Saturday

Its a bit windy down here, but nice and warm. No rain for a while now! I've had a flight with the quad in the wind, which was nice...

Well, a late start due to the weather and I'm sure the horrendous forecast and very wet start to the day put off many but after the weather improved Brian, visitor Dave Lane and myself with Brian Colclough and And Sayle earlier had some great flying! Piccies to follow...
