New flying site

Now have access to a new flying field a few minutes walk from my house :)
Hopefully if the weather isn’t too breezy I will be able to get up there with the Twinstar & post some videos

St. George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance

http://www.bbm.org.uk/BHchapel.htm

By March 2016,the Royal Air Force/Ministry of Defence are withdrawing all support from the Chapel. If no one or group takes on the responsibility of this magnificent Memorial Chapel, it will be closed without access to the public or church services.

This Chapel was built as a Memorial to Aircrew, who had their lives taken in World War ll, they fought and they died. We, today, have the freedom to forget.

Low fliying

No updates for a while, been spending time over Christmas with my present from the wife, Axial JK Wrangler G6, rock crawling in 1/10th scale is great fun!

A sunny June 1st

Managed to get a couple of flights in on the Twink. Camera working okay this time :) Managed to bash one of the aileron pushrods walking into the field which bent it slightly & required a bit of trim on the first flight, other than that and some poor attempts at landing on the narrow track in the long grass some good flights. Looks like the field will be cut for silage shortly so will try and get the Travelair out for some nitro flying

 

 

 

The 109

After looking at it in the box for months & having no where to build it until my workshop is built I decided to ebay it off. It is now flying in Southern Italy! Workshop build is back under way and have my eye on a 73″ Warkhawk I have seen for sale. Need to get the workshop finished first though!

Finally a good flying day

Finally a nice flying day when I am not working :) 2 good flights in the twink over St Chads including some soaring with a Buzzard. Just got back to check the video & it seems it han’t recorded¬† :(

Also tried out a new flying patch I have access to, too rough for anything other than the Twinstar but a nice bit flat field. Did have some video of it but lost that also. Maybe later in the week.

Hibernation

Winters over (ish) and the weekend weather forcast is good, time to dust off the Twinstar & stir the sticks again. Checked over & conditioned the battery packs so just need a dry & still day.

During the off season I have been flying on Phoenix 4. They have just release an update to version 5
