Despite the weather it looks like you all had a great time. The Hurricane looks impressive. Thanks for the photos.

John, your welcome.
The fuselage of the Hurricane is that wide, that I think I couldn't launch it with one Hand. We only saw it static in Olten, no flights at the meeting due to the weather. According to the builder, the first trim flights look promising. I am looking forward to see it fly Smiley

Great pics Roman.  I too am impressed by the Hurricane.  It will be a very impressive flyer.

Last Saturday we had our spring meeting in Switzerland. After multiple windy and rainy meetings, we had a dry and calm day with lots of flying. No excuse to not fly this time Grin Ok, nearly no sun....
I took some pictures for you. I hope you like them...

Nice pics as ever, Roman. I always feel like I'm actually there with your photos- you manage to convey the whole atmosphere somehow. Good to see the old Vagabond still going strong.

Lovely - and, as others have said, great photographs!

By the way, did the Hurricane fly?

     Hi Roman.   Excellent in-flight pics.  Cool   Those are wonderful pics to study.  Shocked   I always like to inquire about flying fields -  your  grass looks pretty lush.  Is that a sod farm?   What would be the approximate size of your flying field?   For comparison, my Cricket field is quite small -  it is 110 yards x 130 yards, shaped in somewhat of a slight oval.
     Thanks for your pic #3 in reply #55.   Now I see how you wind a rubber motor, by the propeller, still attached to the rubber, and with the thrust button also on the prop shaft, attached to the rubber.   I only saw a pic of the other style, where there was a hook of the prop wire sticking out past the nose, for you to attach the winder hook to.  Thanks again for the pics.
     Now that sports are cancelled everywhere,  because of the Corona virus pandemic, maybe we can get out into a small park to fly some quiet rubber powered models.   Smiley

Thanks everybody Cheesy

Jack, No, the Hurricane did not fly. It was damaged in the first trimming flights some weeks ago. Now she is repaired and reinforced at some points.
The builder will start soon with some new test flights. I hope to see it in flight at one of the next meetings. It is quite impressive to see such a great model compared to a peanut Grin

Richard, If my planes have a spinner, I always use a cord to wind the whole unit (spinner, propeller and thrust button). It does not matter if it is a two- tree- or four blade propeller...

Pete, sorry, I know there is not enough sun on the pictures for your taste. I cant keep up the illusion that we only have sunny and nice weather in switzerland Wink But at least it was flyable... The big (24")  Piper Vagabond flies still great. I only let it fly if the conditions are nice. This plane is an amazing flyer. What a pity, that the kit is not available anymore....

Stay healthy and build something new or let your models fly. Just keep the heads up Smiley

Very nice Roman - it seems to have been nice and calm and not too cold.  The photos provide a good way of reminding us that flying these models is such a.nice pastime so use the present situation wisely and build something!

I have attended these events in the past, could not go this time.

What you do not know is that the selection of photographs comes from a total of ~500 shots by three people... Most enjoyable to watch, even if not there this time...
