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

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.
