A great relaxing day today at Wrotham .
I planned to go for an hour and stayed for 5

Congratulation to Swarrens on his maiden and follow up flights of his 1/3 ASH26 ..
I did the best I could do with my phone footage .it's not quite up to miniphase (paul) standards

Simon''s  ash26 maiden vid
https://youtu.be/WNOTTwUqgVc

I had a good few flights with my Albatross and flight 2 and 3 with my siren ..
The sky was rather busy on my sirens second flight and I felt i wasnt able to see everyone before I got to them .. my third flight was great ..really enjoyed the model and was well worth the long slow build .

Have a good day at thurnham tomorrow chaps ..
Hope u all feel guilty flying whilst I'm sitting in traffic ..

Nice one chaps! Sorry I couldn't make it for the maiden, but glad
to see all went well.

What's the verdict Simon? It rolls, so does that alone qualify it as a keeper?

It's a lovely thing Paul, and as a Reinhard Schueller product a bit of model aircraft aristocracy (IMHO) so yes, it's a keeper.  I'm also hopeful that it will have its own place in my stable as it is quite a bit lighter than my DG800 and has a nice retract so I can use it for aerotowing and lighter wind days on the slope.  It still needs a little tuning I think - I want to check the horizontal dihedral and then perhaps take a bit more weight out of the nose. On the other hand, I don't want it to be super-neutral like most of my others so that it has a bit more self-correcting stability for aerotow.

Shame you couldn't be there but hopefully we'll get another chance soon.  My fence at home is coming on well but it's 50/50 if I will survive it physically!

Hi all ..
I got the chance this evening to sort out the footage from Simon's second Ash26 flight

https://youtu.be/pwYkCkDIvPE

Now I have most of my gliders flying and my backlog of builds and maidens up to date I just have the sunbird to build and the tragi to set up.
I'm going to try and set up the tragi for my next outing .. I'm not to sure I will be flying it ..but I'm looking fwd to seeing it being flown.
Thanks also to Charlie for the build advice on Sunday . I'm going to order all the servos for the sunbird next week so I will hopefully have it flying in the next month ..

Would be very pleasant at Holly Hill today. (Saturday 23 Feb).

Unfortunately I can't make it, I have to oversee my sons' birthday party.

10mph SSE, couldn't be better for Holly!
I'll be there this morning!
There will be other days,Gary!  :)
Update: 7-8 mph blow, had a couple of good billy-no-mates flights, moved to Wrotham, where the only company was 100 sheep, had a couple of flights in so-so to no-lift conditions, had lunch, snoozed the sunshine and then went come to carry on with jobs for SWSBO! ;D

Simon

I had the chance to fly it a couple of times for a few seconds when Simon launched it, and it felt great.
Watching it fly, it's very much like my 'little' 4 metre Multiplex ASH26, which is also a keeper.
Mine is undergoing some re-furbishment at present, as it has had lots of hours in the air over the past few years, but it will be returning to the slope in the Spring.

Hi, been missing for a while, but just got my mojo back, also looking for a home for a couple of really old soaring books (free).
But there doesnt seem to be any recent posts on here, so this is basically just a test mail!

Hi Dave.  Yes things are a little slow mainly down to the fact the wind has been all over the place! (Having said that I expect today was epic on the South downs - I just wish I had been there!
Looking forward to seeing you at Thurnham if we ever get a SW wind again!

Good lift at Minster yesterday afternoon, but the wind straight off the North Sea was b-cold.

There was one paraglider there who had just landed as the wind strength was getting too strong.
While chatting with him, it turns out that they have problems with paramotor glider fliers making things difficult for them PR-wise at coastal sites, just as we have problems with the activities of a small minority of drone and FPV flyers who either don't know the rules or deliberately choose to ignore them.

In case you missed it, here's the link to the BBC1 Panorama programme on the Gatwick Christmas Drone Attacks - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0003vwg/panorama-the-gatwick-drone-attack
The comments made by the drone racer pilots weren't too helpful but those made by the professional drone operators were worth listening to.

Excellent session at the BoPeep Lane site on the South Downs today.

Simon, Paul (+Judith), Mark, Mick (+Mrs Mick), Lloyd and me from Invicta MF, along with fliers from Sussex, Surrey, Hertfordshire and Essex had a great day in perfect conditions.

There were in excess of 15 pilots and nearly double that number of models. Everyone appreciated the warm, sunny conditions and there was plenty of catching up done with flying buddies not seen for quite a few months.

There were only two crashes during this busy day and a couple of no-damage incidents which will most probably be related later on by the pilots involved.

If you weren't there you missed a cracking session, both flying and socialising.

PS - As we arrived in the morning Lloyd informed us that there had been an infestation of ticks in the pits area and he advised us to tuck our trouser bottoms into our socks to prevent them climbing up our legs into our nether regions!  ;D
This was OK for most of us as we didn't mind looking a bit odd, but Simon was wearing shorts so he was having to constantly check his legs for ticks throughout the day.
I did see him disappear into the gorse bushes a couple of times, so maybe he was checking his nether regions as well.   ;) ;D

A cracking session was had by all at Thurnham this afternoon.
Si, Sir Bob, Eric P and Mick reported epic lift from the streets of clouds coming from the south west in the 20mph winds,

Having some jobs to do at home, I didn't arrive until the aforementioned were leaving but Si and Sir Bob acccompanied me over to the slope face so that I didn't have a Billy-No-Mates session with my 37 year old Phase 6 Pro. :af

For those that may not be aware, the Pro Phase 6 has a fully symmetrical wing section meaning that it flys just as well inverted as upright and is great for outside manouvres. The Sportsman version with its semi-symmetrical wing section stays up better in lighter conditions, but isn't as versatile on the aerobatic front.

Unfortunately the layby had a lot of McDonald's litter scattered about, but luckily I had some disposable gloves with me and I managed to fill a carrier bag with the night-time visitors rubbish and the layby looks much tidier now!

Maybe it's naive of me, but I think that if an area is kept tidy and litter-free, then maybe, just maybe, people may think twice about thoughtlessly discarding litter. One can live in hope!  :)

It may have been the best lift I've ever experienced at Thurnham?  Anyway it was a fabulous session with like minded souls.
On a slightly down note, if you haven't seen it already, please respond to the CAA's invite to comment on their proposal to charge us AT LEAST 16.50 a year to register ourselves as "Drone" pilots - see the BMFA website for links etc.  The bit that worries me most is that charge is based on their assumption of spreading the cost over 170,000 pilots and based on the BMFA's membership of 30K and the unlikelihood of the thousands of drone pilots registering the actual cost to law abiding citizens like ourselves could be way more.  I might be over reacting but I think if we comment in large numbers it might help...

First up "Thank you Eric for cleaning the layby "
My door pockets in my van are full of crisp packs and bottles where I refuse to throw stuff out the window ..I can't believe it sometimes even driving up the motorway and some random driver winds there window down and ejects bags of mc Donald's out the window .. about 15 years ago I took a strawberry milkshake to the face on my motorbike as some careless moron threw it out .. instantly had to lift my visor to see ..

As for the new charges I have noticed xjet has made a video about it ..I still need to watch ..
I will be also giving my thoughts

On a brighter note
Dan and I ..had a nice day on our field testing his new phoenix v2 last sat.. had the pleasure of lots of birds of prey circling .. if anyone knows what the birds are pls chime in ..Im not sure if there red kites or buzzards

Enjoy

Please don't wish the Spring away too quickly Paul, we haven't had any evening light wind soaring sessions yet!

Event Report

Simon and I made the trip 'up North', to the BMFA National Model Flying Centre at Buckminster in Lincolnshire yesterday for the first Aerotow meeting of the season.

After an early start we made it just in time for the pilots briefing shortly after 10:00am. Neither of us had planned to fly, Simon had sold his K6 and needed to deliver it to the very happy puchaser, one of the Ghost Squadron Team and I was there to catch up with fliers that we hadn't seen since last Autumn. In the process and as we were further north than normal, we were able to put real faces to names that we had seen on the Scale Soaring UK forum pages, but hadn't previously had the opportunity to meet.

Our local lad Simon Thornton was also there flying his DG600 and here's the link to the photos that he took on the day, which as you know wasn't the warmest of Sundays.
https://scalesoaring.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2432&start=10#p22868

There was an excellent turnout and luckily only a couple of crashes.

If anyone is interested in attending an aerotow meeting, either as a flier or spectator, the next one is in two weeks time at Middle Wallop Airfield in Hampshire. Contact us for further info.

Hi Jeff, Looks like a nice example of German engineering you have there.

Regarding the next aerotow meeting which will be on the weekend of 18/19 May at the Army Aircorps Airfield, Middle Wallop in Hampshire, here is the link to the posting on Scale Soaring UK site concerning access arrangements to the airfield.
https://scalesoaring.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2603&p=22887#p22887

Unfortunately the Government's Defence Infrastructure Organisation who manage the airfield have increased the airfield access charges, so there will be a  10 to attend as a spectator payable to the Ghost Squadron team on the airfield. If you are going to fly it costs 10 to have as many aerotows by the Ghost Squadron's fleet of tugs as you can fit in during the day. The tugs will operate all day from 10am to 7pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday.

If you want to attend an aerotow meeting at which it is free to spectate, the North London RFC hold their annual Aerotow Meeting at their immaculate close-mown private field just outside Baldock in Hertfordshire on Sunday 4th August, but there will be a charge if you wish to be aerotowed, again by the Ghost Squadron Team.
Here's the link to the event: https://scalesoaring.co.uk/event/baldock-glider-day/

The site is lady-friendly as it does have hot food and drinks . . . . and flushing toilets on site.  :) ;)

Middle Wallop is great, you should go, Jeff. It's a long drive though.

I might go to the Baldock one on 4 Aug, I haven't been there before.

Tomorrow (Friday) is looking good for Thurnham, anyone tempted?   (I'll have to check the weather forecast in the morning to be sure, it might change.)

June 21st is a Friday. I can probably get the day off (I am having a bit of time off this summer) and it will mark a year since I flew last.

Here's hoping for a 14mph South-Westerly!

Sounds like a plan Jef. There's tentative talk of organising a BBQ.... watch this space!

Took this old bird out for a fly today. Was driving past Wolstonbury Hill near Brighton, so decided to have a quick session with the Erwin. The first mouldie I ever built, a bit battered now but still flies great.

Warm (at last) session at Thurnham this afternoon and evening with a selection of Mouldies, Scalies and Woodies present. :)
Forecast is not so good for the next couple of days, however Sunday and Monday are looking promising.  :xx
I'm not old, I've just been young for a very long time!
