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 .

Think of it as Imac indoor and your somwere near, Im entered in the lowest class F3P-C and im fairly confident (famous last words) and in whats known as AM (aero musical) which im not at all confedent in, this is where you have 2 mins to "freestyle" to music (I forsee a big bin bag needed)

Heres a vid of the kind of thing expected in AM Embarassed

May the force be with you!

That Aeromusical looks like a right laugh! I should imagine the trick is to choose the right sort of music. What have you chosen, anything we know? A bit of Celine Dion perhaps? What about the Vengaboys? afro (oh look, the afro smiley makes another appearance!)

Blimey, you must be planning some proper stick banging action with those tunes! I wish I could make it across to see the event now, alas I have an appointment with a rather large hill and lots of mud! Wink

Well what can I say, It turns out that all the prep in the world cant make up of a distinct lack of tallent.

Some of the flying on display was trully stunning, the precition in the shedule flights was top draw and the AM was trully spectaular and I had to realise im just not in even playing the same game nevermind in the same ballpark,

If the truth be known I had abit of a nightmare, I could go into reasons blaming this and that but the end of the day I could have/ should have done alot better, had a problem at the start of my first flight of the day (and first problem of the whole comp) and my head went simple as, and i never really recovered.

I had an absoulutly awsome time and i will post some of the vids over the next couple of days and belive me theres some crackers

Now wheres the wiskey gone!!!

Star of the show Claes Miejer over from Sweeden, heres a 2 min vid of his secound AM round I had the huge pleasure of flying both rounds straight after Claes and as you will see it was quite some act to follow, Claes was a trully nice guy and a born entertainer I had the pleasure of sharing the resurve flightline with him at the start of the day a he can certenly fly

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=HyFXIKZo5ls

AM rules state that you cannot touch the plane during flight so even more respect gose to Claes for taking an automatic DQ just to entertain

Well done Mark. The experience must be worth it's weight in gold. I'm sure it won't be long before your standing on the podium. You'll give Richie and Brian a run for their money at IMAC Very Happy
