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 .

Multi rotor "A" test

Post by Rich on Thu Aug 14, 2014 9:57 pm

Mark Barnes has completed the first "A" Test multi rotor at Rhyl field tonight, conditions were blustery although the test was completed showing good control.

Well Done Mark.

I won't be taking mine until I'm confident I to fly in manual mode which is the only way the BMFA will allow the test to proceed.

No problem Andy, have you flown & practiced the test sequence in manual mode, I make no bones about it, it will be difficult, I'm not ready yet, Mark has been flying in manual mode for a while now.

Thanks Rich,

Was good to run through the test a couple of times to get a feel for what we should be looking for as examiners, at least were both singing from the same hyme sheet so there should be some consistency between us.

We will have to find time to run through it with the other club examiners to.

I suggest anyone wanting to take it practices and reads the guide notes that are posted in club matters so your clear on what your expected to do

So just to clarify, If I want to do the test with my little 330LF, that has an open pilot flight controller, I can use the heading lock gyro mode, as it states in the BMFA documentation?

"This allows a range of gyros to be fitted, from simple yaw dampers to solid state heading lock units."

Cheers!
Andy
