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 .

Whilst looking through YouTube for anything new on the FrSky system I came across THIS . For the younger members this is how it used to be done way before propo/galloping ghost/ reeds. Just imagine, if beginners think its difficult now! Not only did you have to contend with the inconsistancies of rubber powered escapements but you probably had to make a lot of the system yourself. No wonder I only played with boats in those days. I marvel at the perverse nature of some people who like to give themselves a hard time in the pursuite of nostalgia.

One push for right and two for left. A quick tap for change throttle to high or low.That was progress. Only one model to fly at a time, no crystals in those days. Happiness was coming home with the model at all.

Throttle control? ........... Luxury!
I had a smile at "Happiness was coming home with the model at all". (How true!)
