We had a great day at Hoteo on Sunday. Calm until 1130hrs after which the sea breeze filled in. My Comet Avenger is getting trimmed after adjustments to side and down thrust and the VMC Jodel D18 just needs the washout in the starboard wing removed. Don Spray had the Puss Mothin while Paul Evans had good flying with a Luton Minor. Finally George Fay had a challenging day with the PE2.   
Ricky

Looks like George is getting ambitious....if he gets that going well he may rival John Henson's famous P-39 for reputation...how big is Paul's Luton....I am sitting on the Flyline one.....which will see the light of day one of these decades..

Chris,
        This Pe2 is just one of George's many twins and does fly well. The luton minor is the Fearnley plan which is I think a little bigger than the Flyline one.

Chris,
        That makes me think of the Mainland cheese ad about good things taking time!

Nice weather in San Antonio today - had a little fun with some of my older models.  No really memorable flights, just a good day flying with a friend.

Yes - these shots are frame captures from the GoPro, taken from 1080p60 video.

We flew a while and I am still very happy with the results. Really great flying with you, as always.

A very satisfying morning in perfect conditions on Sunday until 1030. Photos of the ZK-AUD Lysander are attached. Cloud Tramps were being trimmed and the Jodel is geting there as is the rewinged Tiger Moth.

Eeeeeew yuk! - look at the saggy tissue in the damp early morning air on my hardly-doped-at-all wings evident in the second picture.  The other photo's a cracker though - thanks Ricky.

Likewise 600 odd km south....where a small group of us had a fantastic autumn day-26C just up the road in Masterton-with a variety of models, practice, testing and preparation for the NI FF Champs 6-8 April. My sole casualty for an entire day's flying was one broken strand in the 'Last Resort' motor..

A glorious day at Lodge Farm with Ivan Taylor. Ivan's TSR2 is something to behold, climbing high on half power from the two KP fans and then hooking a thermal

My newly electrified Peanut Bristol Scout had its first outing today.  Beautiful day, if a tad gusty by the time I got to the field, plus one or two variables still to fine-tweak, but proof-of-concept happily satisfied.  Next opportunity will be first ROGs at our local indoor venue in a fortnight, then the Nats!  Shocked

Blackburn launching on my behalf... https://photos.app.goo.gl/DeRjk6hjLarofcgq7

PS Mike Stuart also there.  A full-size yellow Tiger Moth from the next door field was doing circuits, and we both remarked how realistically slow it looked... just like his Fox Moth!  Grin

Those jets look amazing! Is that an F16 Ivan has on his lap? Any details on the weights and size KP fans? Those are bigger jets than I've been told they would handle...

That looks like it's going to be a go'er. Very nice!



It was a glorious day for flying, sadly I was up at 3am to drive 2.5 hours for a 6am start, then 3 hour drive to the next job, and just got home (8pm). Might get in early enough tomorrow to try the Fokker. Maybe *on knees with hands clasped*

Hi Monz. I think they are Derek's biggest fans. None of them are anywhere near maxed out on power. Yes it's an F16. The TSR2 is 5 feet long and 2 feet wide, although I suspect the fuselage contributes some lift

That looks the business, although you could have chosen a prettier pilot. Cheesy
