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 .

Cool that, I towed at TVSA with Steve quite a few years ago, my 1/4 scale Wilga went under the wing of Steve's 1/3 scale Wilga, I have a pic somewhere, I'll try to find it.

The Wilga was really struggling there, I'm thinking of the DLE222 when I get round to my 1/3 scale one. Steve used to have a ZDZ 160 power plant, although he was moaning that it wasn't very good he may have put alternative power in by now.

Well for my tentative start in aerotowing, I have bagged this at a good price from a flying buddy.
Hope to collect next weekend at the LLeyn PSS flyin.Aerotow 14th August Scaledayaug2010080
Grunau baby of course....
Each wing panel is approx 66 inches long with a chord of approx 12 inches. The Fuz is approx 58 inches long.
It is of a traditional build . i.e balsa, ply & covering is solartex.
I believe it was built from a plan ( Mike Trew was the model designer) I am told .
So, that seems to be around 11.5 - 12' wingspan allowing approx 6 -12" for fuselage width.
That makes it approx 3.5Mtr then Aerotow 14th August Emthup

I'm easy, If today is anything to go by, I'll be woken up by the little one at about half five in the morning anyway..... 8.43am?

Just had a look at the latest forecast on XCweather, It is looking like we might get away with a half decent day weather wise!
