July Update – BBC Filming and more!

Hi Everyone, Well I hope you've all been enjoying the great weather recently and getting some quality flying time. Apparently the field was packed to capacity last Wednesday and the pits filled up with models - just wish I hadn't been at work! Still there have also been plenty of great weekends too, so all is good. This Saturday 15th July is our Vintage and Retro day at the field from 12pm. I'm really looking forward to this as most of my collection falls well into this category!

Equaliser Racing

Hi Everyone, Just thought I'd say what a fantastic day we had at the field today.

The weather was great too with just a fairly light north easterly wind and a nice autumnal sun. The main event of the day was the final Equaliser race of the year and we had a great entry of 11 battling it out with some very close and exciting flying, especially towards the end! With Gavin away on a well deserved holiday, it was down to me to get things under way. To start with we just flew some timed practice laps to get used to the...
