Fun morning out flying with the South Aussie 60s Coupers...  a shared park with runners, cyclists, cricketers, dog walkers... but Dave and Ian managed to get in some flying on one of the calmest days we've had here for a while. Well done Ian for getting your first Coupe in the air.
cheers

  Big thanks to Tim for timing and Hugo  for "fetchermite" detail.  Just some short flights with only about 280 turns, just enough keep out of the trees and  record some times to join in the postal comp.  Nice to see a new  Free Flighter in Ian with his very neat Deuzio.

Tim,
       Well done, you clearly had a weather window that was sufficiently calm. We have the high winds that you experienced in early last week.

Hope the calm is headed your way then Ricky! - it was good enough for me and Hugo to get some Mooney Peanut flights in too while we were there which H always enjoys (unfortunately my videos of these were a bit rubbish). Pic with Dave working on his Drobek - cheers THB

Last ditch 60s C d'H activity in Melbourne.

The agreeable Adelaide weather came to Melbourne on Monday the 28th. Vin and Leigh Morgan and myself flew at Royal Park. Travel restrictions prevented us from reaching our club field west of Melbourne but after some research we concluded Royal Park might be OK in very low drift conditions.
Vin and Leigh had Deuzios and I had my DD III and Ailbass. The Cov19 travel restrictions prevented Mike Glaiter joining the fun.
Janet Taylor assisted with timing and took the photos.

Leigh who made 4 flights back in June, completed her flights uneventfully.
After a number of rounds Vin and I both found trees for our models perch in.
Mine was easily recovered once found after quite a lot of had work with the yagi antenna.
Vin's was much more difficult and only recovered after a return home for pole modification.

Vin came back the next morning for an even more adventurous final flight.
No doubt details will appear in FlyPaper.
The park has plenty of the legendary long soft grass so I guess we will make more use of it in future.

Thanks to Mark for keeping us active in these restricted times.

A sensational effort by the Melbourne contingent under the circumstances. And great photos thank you Janet!
Loved the pole photo - remember, only steer from the front and if the model ceases 'translational movement' for more than 10 secs after hanging up the flight is over...  oh, hang on, that's indoor...
Good looking field you've found too
cheers
Tim

Well here we are again, at the end of another postal competition.  A difficult year for everyone no doubt but hopefully the postal allowed some flying, clearing of the cob-webs and stretching of limbs.  Genuine winter-time flying of Cd'H models was never intended to be easy and this year had added difficulties but I'm sure there was fun for those who chose to participate.

So far, I have scores from seven stalwarts who put in the effort, much appreciated here.
They are:

Bill Swift
Glenn Grell
Mark Sexton
Dave Putterill
Sean O'Connor
Leigh Morgan
Vin Morgan

In the past, I have had some scores go to my junk e-mail folder and I check it from time to time but frankly, the volume of junk mail is such that a thorough examination of everything that comes through is impossible.  So please let me know if your name is missing from the list and send me your scores once again.  I will wait a few days in case anyone's scores will be trickling in.

Cheers,
Mark

Thank you Mark and I will definitely get going asap on a nice coupe from the 60's. The Nikolina is my pick. Sadly I can't remember how to spell that one.
