Well arrived im Doset. loverly weather but no wind.  checked out Creech but wasnt sure where to fly from and wind wasnt great.  Drove over to Rimgstead and bumped into a couple of paragliders who had been parawaiting all afternoon.  only just enough lift to keep a dlg up! suspect i might not get too much flying in with the wind... but enjoying the scenary  :af

Info for Dorset Slopers.   :af

Dear Modellers,

 

I have been asked to write to you by my fellow club members as it has been brought to the attention of the National Trust warden that a fellow enthusiast has been using electric deducted fan models at the Ringstead site. It has also been noted that the flying of this model was low, fast and above the cars parked at the site.

 

Our understanding of the National Trustís rules states that only non-powered models are permitted at the site, therefore this behaviour could jeopardise our hobby there. I hope you can pass this information on to your members, so they, like ours, can continue to use Ringstead as we have done in the past.

 Thanks

We get the same thing at Devil's Dyke which is a National Trust site.  The glider flyers know the NT policy about not having powered planes and stick to it.  But random members of the public see the flying and think anything goes, and turn up with EDF jets etc.  Hard to control that random element.

Coming into Poole on the ferry next month.... Might have a couple of hours free - before I head off into deepest Cornwall - for a cheeky spot of slope soaring .... Any recommendations for a site I can visit?

Thanks

Hi, as some posts about #155, creech hill car park is about 1/2 hr from the ferry in poole and always a good place to check the wind direction to start with, you can fly most directions in the purbecks if you dont mind walking 15-20 mins.
