....more seriously, yes ... it was intended to be a call out for new flyers, but I should have added the banner "come along and make it great again"!
It is more than an indoor meeting still with the display of models, round the pole flying, seminars (missing this time), SAM's etc.
Try and make it to the spring one!

Yes it was a good day - that "peanut"actually is betwixt Pistachio and Peanut at 9inch span. A "mistake" when copying but it looked cute so it got built.  It is proving more challenging than the Peanut DR1 - as someone said with no dihedral, two wings and a short nose it has not got a lot going for it at that size!  However...... it is now receiving surgery to accommodate more side and down thrust and probably more mutilation of the prop.  Started was a 4 inch plastic one - is now 3inches and reducing - width wise as well.  Loads o' lead as well.

The Scout by the way is Hugh Stevenson's - known  for his quality of workmanship, light builds and good flying performance. In the two flights it did 50 and 49 secs.

Very nice crowd at Impington.  Recommended.

Lovely video, thanks for posting the link.  That RTP stuff, the C130(?) especially, looked downright dangerous.

Hi All,
I was there! and really enjoyed seeing some beautiful models. The scout (also my favourite) belongs to Hugh Stevenson. Looking forward to joining in the fun soon.

Hi Bernard,
Yes, you are in the background of the video quite a lot!
I did come over and say hello .... I should have introduced myself properly.

It was some time ago I used to attend the flying sessions in Burbank High School gym with my Pietenpol Air Camper. The Camper kit was bought from Tony and Addie's Hobby Lobby on Victory Blvd. The year was 1978, one of the gentlemen in the pictures is still flying with the Black Sheep Squadron events, I assume, this I could read in the recent posts. I hope it is OK with the folks in the pics me having posted the photos here. I also have a bunch of slides I took at the Sepulveda dam flying field back then.

A good turnout at the Manchester Velodrome yesterday. I counted about 36 people there. Pic is Mark Brill’s new Keilkraft Lysander, complete with ladder and auxiliary fuel tank. Looks even better with the cowl on of course.
Also, here’s a little video of my peanut Scout.

(At the end of the flight you can see that it scuttles across the floor looking for someone to pick it up, nearly misses a likely fellow, but then doubles back to him. It’s hard to trim them to do that, but worth it to keep them out of trouble!)

I posted some pictures of indoor flying at BHS back in 1978. In the last picture, Phedon Tsiknopoulos is trimming his glider. I went on searching the messages and found Mike Kirda writing, that Phedon passed away in 2014. Sad, it explains no reply from Phedon to my direct e-mails.

A most enjoyable day’s flying at the Norwind meeting, now held at Lowton, near Leigh. My first time since they moved to this hall, and apart from being rather chilly I really liked the venue. Not all that big but nice and square. The duration boys don’t like the cluttered ceiling, but for small scale stuff it’s fine. This month were the Kit Scale and Peanut comps. I was delighted and very surprised to win Peanut with the Scout, especially as it only managed 15 seconds from ROG. There was a bit of a mix up at the presentation so I’m not entirely convinced the result will stand, but no matter. Dave Crompton won Kit Scale with his fine Flying VMC Bird Dog. At Norwind the KS rules are somewhat different to the BMFA’s in that we judge each other’s flight profiles using a very good system devised by Dave Whitehouse. Crucially too, seconds count (up to a max of 30). Anyway, big congrats to Dave. The Bird Dog was going beautifully.
Couple of pics of the Peanut entry. Should have got a pic of the KS entry too: an impressive 14 models with double entries allowed. The meeting covered the hall cost which is great.

Sounds like a good meeting Pete.

I went in the opposite direction to the OFMAC meeting at Berinsfield nr Wallingford.

Great relaxed atmosphere, no comps and a chance to try out my new Pup

There's a Pup dominated video here

Yet another nice video- thanks for that! Good steady progress with the Pup too. Did you try it off the ground at all?
