17th of August 2013

Great weather at the farm again, although a changeable crosswind made some landings a little tricky!


Paul & I finally got the double Spitty act up & running again & they sounded as good as ever!

James Jnr assisted James Snr to get into the air with his Venus trainer.

Prez finding the weather a little warm!

Paul gave the Ege 540 V3 a good spanking!

Curtis had a lockout that destoyed his Extra 300 & then his motor fell off his foamy!

Bill's SBach 342 found that flying without a prop is difficult!

Jamie from the CMHC came out or a fly & brought his electric powered Red Bull that had more power than my 30cc gas version!

All in all not a bad day, & we get to do it all again next weekend!

Cheers, Rob

3rd & 10th of August 2013

The weather last week was very average, but there was a few photos to catch up on, including the demise of my old favourite the Saratoga. Seems I had pulled one too many high G manoeuvrers & the airframe had had enough!

This weekend was a very different story - beautiful weather, multiple successful maidens & best of all, no mishaps!

Michael's latest purchase, the "Nemesis"

Difficult to photograph in the air being small & fast, but here goes anyway!

The 'old girl' is a bit easier to capture!

We finally got to see Paul's 72cc twin Edge fly, & what a beast she is in the air!

Plenty of aerobatics on display...

New retracts for theTrojan meant Anthony could fly with the wheels up!

One of the fastest things with a prop ever seen at the farm was Steve's 55cc powered Sundowner. Even a rotated wheel pant couldn't slow her down!

Some final random photos including Graeme's Tiger Moth & Bob's 30cc Sukhoi that he maidened very late in the day.

 Packing up ready for a beer!

We also had an extraordinary club meeting along with our AGM. Special thanks to Greg Wood for sorting out all our club affairs & putting us back on track.

See you next week.

Cheers, Rob
