Bill

Wasn't it a glorious day. A great bit of flying by you in P30 which showed us 'also rans' the way to go. Unless I misunderstood him, Ivan told me that you also won an outdoor kit scale class - or was this an earlier comp?

Cheers

Thanks Peter. Yes it certainly was a great November day. One that made you wonder where all the other 'scale fliers' were.
Now, to begin that replacement Raff V.

Replacement Bill?     Did you lose a predecessor to the infamous and unexpected Raff V spiral dive?

Hi Jim, no, it's just laughing at me from somewhere up in a small wood at Luffenham. I've never experienced this dive and I have always got on well with the RAFF V. There is so little wood in it, I can get a reasonable weight. I just noticed the fin camber (which hitherto I have ignored) is for a left turn, but I have always flown r/r. I had my ear bent this weekend that L/R is best but I don't know.

PS I get the feeling that I met you briefly at Old Warden some years back. Is that feasible?

Afraid not, Bill.  I've only been there once, long go in the dim past, specifically to take many detail photographs of a Tiger Moth for an overseas builder.   Whoever he was ....   Undecided    Not a modelling occasion.

I fly folders L/R too but in this case I'd ditch that fin camber .. but Vintage rules would frown upon that?   Maybe R/R is best for it.
