Dave Sargent - Scattering of Ashes

Post by Allan Patrick on Wed Feb 18, 2015 2:10 pm

For the info of those it will be relevant to, the carriers for Dave's ashes have arrived from Hobby King

Started this thread as a place for discussion of the logistics and technicalities

The carriers need either an rx or servo driver to be opened so will have a look at internal size etc later. They are fixed to the aircraft by two holes arranged longitudinally approx 50mm apart. So they could be screwed directly into a foam wing (if you don't mind holes made in ones wing!) They each have two servos so four servos in total (battery peak load requirements) and would need a servo lead out to each carrier.

I have received an email from Jane saying that Dave's funeral went well. She is asking how the plans are going here and has suggested April.

 "Kate and I were thinking the middle of April might be a good time maybe[url=x-apple-data-detectors://0]Saturday 18th[/url]/25th April - can you let  me know how that might be for you. I know also I have to think of whether the glider is going to be ready.!!! "

Any thoughts on these dates?

The under wing 'modules' have arrived. They look fine for the job

April is fine for me

UPDATE

A few of us have chatted about the choice of model and we have settled on
1) My Vulcan bomber ( assuming a decent slope lift )
2) Steve Prices Paramotor which now belongs to Jem
I have spent a few days refitting it and sorting out the drop system, and ground trials look promising.
I have now fitted both "droppers" to a mounting plate, and have devised a quick fix system that enables it to be fitted to either of the chosen craft within minutes.
I plan to do the drop as part of the seasons opening PSSA meet at the Great Orme on the weekend of April 11th and 12th, and this has been OK'd by Phil Cooke - PSSA club el capataan.
I hope to do some flight trials and dummy drops with both machines next week as I am away from Thursday until Sunday of this week.
Any club member is of course very welcome to assist or otherwise attend at the trials or of course the event itself - I don't plan on it being a formal or morbid affair - quite the opposite  Very Happy  T
PS ALLAN PATRICK - I COULD REALLY USE THE SECOND DROPPER ASAP MATE

Hi
I have had an email from Jane with some suggested dates.

"At long last I can give you some provisional dates that we might hope to come up to LLandudno to scatter David's ashes. Could you have a word with the lads and see if any of them are convenient to do the deed.


[url=x-apple-data-detectors://0]Saturday 6th June[/url], [url=x-apple-data-detectors://1]13th June[/url],  [url=x-apple-data-detectors://2]20th June[/url], [url=x-apple-data-detectors://3]4th July[/url], [url=x-apple-data-detectors://4]11th July[/url].


Look forward to hearing from you


Best Wishes
Jane"


Do any of these dates fit in with the model being ready and availability, I can not do the 13th or the 20th .

June 13 is the second pssa event and the only date im free.
The epp vulcan is ready but not sure the paramotor back up is suitable - we could do with a large electric model as back up suitable for orme if no wind

Hi
Latest reply from Jane.

Hi Brent


Sorry I have been so long in getting back to you - unfortunately we will have put the dates on hold. Kate is very keen to make sure you and Zaid are able to be there. I know you both have busy lives, but we feel that it is fitting you both if able to be there, you were good mates with David.
Could you let me know the dates of other PSS meetings, we will try and work round one of them.


All good wishes
Jane

Brent + Gents .
Currently I can make the 13th, or any date before. Between now and mid June it's looking like I am home, from my point of view the sooner we get a date arranged the better! Can you please pass the message Brent thx

Update from Jane 

Brent, thanks for the e-mail, sorry I haven't got back to you earlier - Kate has been in France, and I needed to talk to her. Unfortunately 13 June is not going to be possible.  Please apologise to the lads for me, trying to organise everybody is proving a difficult task.  Could you ask the lads if  1st of August is a possibility otherwise it will have to be in September.


My sincere apologies for all this hassle.
Jane
