Well - the strong winds in Canberra slowed on the weekend and I took my own-design foamy delta up to the local park for it's first flight.

Lovely afternoon, couple of people walking their dog around the edge of the oval, birds chirping, clouds doing what they do.

The delta did what I'd hoped too and zipped around nicely... until the dog (big playful puppy really) took an intense interest and took off after the model, barking happily as he chased it all over the park... no worries, surely the owners will grab him soon... soon... soon... (oh dear)... battery getting low, got to land soon...

Dropped it right at my feet, but was still too slow to get it before the puppy zoomed through at 900MPH and snatched it up....

Only a couple of dollars of foam and I managed to get the LIPO out of his mouth before he swallowed it - but... sigh - back to the boards - now if only I'd bothered to measure it.... ;-)
