The Club is featured in RCM+E - so a little publicity.

August 26, 2020

Today the Club is featured in the RCM+E  September 2020 issue - page 8. Not the spread I was expecting - Kevin Powling and I were expecting a double spread on his new Mick Reeves Spitfire. Well we wait for us to be surprised again. 

The bad weather has now started to muscle in. We still have September to fly! Hopefully the weather will let up.

Miserable weather. Have we had our Summer ?

Me 108 has Wings !

August 24, 2020

A bit of a photo session Today

August 03, 2020

Today an enjoyable morning was spent photographing kevin's Spits. Perfect weather. Maybe another session to finish off the rest of the warbirds. A little blowy. Over time I will upload them. 

Whats happened to the weather ?

August 01, 2020

Is it just me, but is this summer worse than last Summer ? Sunshine Yes but the wind + cross wind playing havoc with our landings. 

I am sure last year we had better flying weather. Yesterday it was  blowing a gale and yet glorious sunshine, great for the Glider Pilots. 

The Silver Spitfire the talk of the Pits

July 21, 2020

What an amazing day. The weather was perfect for everyone - wind did pick up - but very warm and a few sunburns to go with it. The Spitfire was a delight to see on it's 33rd flight. Thanks to kevin in bringing it along and showing its delights. A fare few members  came out to see the spectacle. So a great day had by all. Steve's Mustang with sound was also terrific to watch along with his piloting skills. The Edf jets were let loose under the direction of GH. A Zero managed to have a flight, a model not seen before. Full size planes were also flying. 

What is happening with the weather these days?

July 18, 2020

What a strange day as with the weather. Gusting 17 - moderate wind at 12 to 14. Straight down the runway. Great for the glider pilots, most of us remained grounded. But a couple of pilots were willing to fly around in the wind. Most are hoping the weather will be more stable towards August and the flying will pick up. The few pictures represent the fact I was not prepared - left the zoom lens behind and fiddled with the Go pro. Still learning to use the parameters of the go pro. 20 odd persons on site so good attendance all the same. 

Our First meet after Lock down

July 10, 2020

Our first Season meet since lockdown. Great day - Cross wind to contend with, cloudy but warm. A good cross section of models out. GH's Edf jets graced the skies. Some photos of the day if you click the button below.

GH's Edf jets photos can be found in their very own section - gallery - Edf jets section. 

 

Look forward to many more meetings.

Great News For some Folks ! Limited Flying

June 03, 2020

Flying has resumed, limited numbers and a booking system is in operation. Flying was a social thing but now it is fly and be gone once done. No hanging around for a natter ! We are up to 6 Pilots on site. The limitations now are Numbers and weather. In two days if the weather is the right kind the whole Club could get a spin. 

The attached photo is hopefully what it will be like in September 2020. 

Someone Has been busy !!!

April 06, 2020

So NO Flying...Cabin Fever has surely set in. BUT out there KP has been busy with his Spit! and what an amazing model indeed. The metal paneling looks pretty realistic. This might inspire us all to get our planes dusted down and ready for the Flying season. What Season you say? ..... This Pandemic has surely shortened our Summer Flying. We will appreciate it more. 

EXtreme Flight " Bushmaster "

August 24, 2019

I am beginning to really enjoy flying this relatively large plane. It is extremely light and you can dial in whatever flight preference you wish to perform. It is an all rounder. Baby steps for me and gingerly putting it through its paces. This plane will be pretty much my "GO TO"  for the moment. There is a bigger version 120inch which looks great. Both versions can be spec with Floats if you are that inclined. 

The "Tiffy " Flies .......what a sound.

August 27, 2019

Kevin's very large Typhoon. I had the pleasure of seeing the "Tiffy" fly be it at Hastings site . It started as a miserable day with the rain drizzling - it soon cleared. So 6 flights later I managed to take a number of photos. The actual flight photos not so brilliant - the dark cloud prevented the model to be well lit. Anyway - The take off and landing pictures look great. So I am sure another visit will be required.
