Good turnout

11 July 2020

A GOOD TURNOUT WAS RECORDED TODAY AND LOTS OF FLYING TOOK PLACE

 

A total of fifteen pilots came out of lockdown and enjoyed a lovely day's flying at Kirkistown.  Social distancing protocols were in place as was the free hand sanatiser kindly gifted by the Area.

Today saw a variety of models put through their paces including petrol, glow, electric and a jet.

The 'Be Flyer' had his 'naughty' Dauntless along for a trial flight after Mark fitted vortex generators on the wings. 

 

The Dauntless would tip stall easily at the point of flaring so Mark hoped the VGs would help to tame the bird.  They appeared to have worked.  You can see the small red VGs on the leading edge towards the wing tips.

Video of a successful landing will follow;

Two maidens

27 May 2020

FIRST OUTING AFTER 'LOCKDOWN'

TWO MODELS MAIDENED

The 'Be Flyer' brought along his new Cub with a nice little 4-stroke fitted.  After a 'wobble' on take-off, Mark managed to get things under control and flew the plane in a lovely scale-like manner.  The Cub is out of the VQ stable and represents excellent value for money.

 

 

Next up was Taildragger's 20cc 'Slick'  It's a Goldwing model of just reasonable quaity and doesn't measure up to Pilot RC standards.  (But at least the wings stayed on!!)

Not having flown for many weeks I got my chief test pilot Keith M, to do the maiden.  I noticed his hands were trembling on the Tx!!  Not suprising though.  The responsibility and all that!

The model didn't handle well and we put this down to the C of G being too far forward.

Six pilots turned out and we all agreed we had a great comeback into the sport.
