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 .
Recently I was on holiday in Italy & while driving in the hills above our resort I came across a group of modellers after spotting a large model glider some distance off ! great hour there & got chatting in English too . They mostly use electric power despite the fact that they are 3000-4000 ft in height, the lift is very scratchy. One unfortunate 'pure glider' pilot had a long walk downhill to retrieve his model along with only a broken wingtip! I could see the logic in using electric thermals. They don't do PSS because as I was told " we don't have the winds like you in the UK!" Great bunch of people who also seem to bring along their ladies who spend their time on sun loungers wearing bikinis!!! I was told to bring a glider on my next visit ! The link below hopefully will give an idea of this wonderful location. Try a search for "Mottarone aero " & you may find more.

Noticed in the vid they still have long aerials on the transmitters, perhaps 2.4Ghz hasn't reached Italy yet.
The best pilots are the ones that practice most!
