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 .

Had a real lucky escape with my Ergo today, touched down at my feet and heard a ping, tried to lift off again and no go plenty of rpm but obviously not enough pitch. One of the pivot bolts on the head had come loose and got thrown out losing pitch on one blade altogether. Had I flown for another second or two chances are it would have been a bin bag job What a Face Just goes to show check your nuts regularly Embarassed and your bolts for that matter Suspect

Glad to got away with it lightly though Smile
