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 .

Jem and I braved the Orme today for a couple of hours - in between the icy showers the 40MPH+ Westerly gave good lift and we had fun racing his Luna and my Jart around.
( just needed to remember this was NOT combat as it usually is with me and Jem Very Happy )

I Flew Jem's L.E.G Fish which was most impressive for a foam model - he has done a super covering job on it - the wing could pass for a veneered or even composite jobby!

I also maidened one of my 2011 models - Mark's old micro-floh - went very well now its glued together right Razz ....much better than Rich's was Shocked

But 'twas a tad windy for the little Weasel EVO so I gave up after a few attempts at a maiden flight - obviously needs some trimming /COG adjustment, and 40MPH wet-wind is not the best conditions to do it Sad
Still, it was nice to get out and up there again...roll on summer and dry fields. sunny

It was glued properly until you mis-guided it into the rocks
