Two maidens

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.

MY PILOT RC LASER 88" READY FOR ITS MAIDEN FLIGHT

After the demise of my Pilot RC Extra 330sc (wing tube failure) I decided to go for this new model with my fingers crossed that the same would not happen again!

There is extensive use of carbon fibre giving the fuselage great strength and rigidity.

    

    

    

    

    

    

The plane is powered by a GP61 2-stroke petrol motor and Hitec servos are installed.  Another great feature on this model is the quick connect system for stabilisers and wings.  Very nifty!  Love the decals too.

Maiden flight went well and she lives to fly another day.

A BIG WARM WELCOME TO MICHAEL WHO HAS JOINED US AT NDMAC

 

Michael is a 'Drone-man' and obtained his licence to operate a drone commercially, the PfCO.
(A Permission for Commercial Operation)

Formally, a flight test engineer at Short Bros, and laterally a retired 747 captain, now Michael has plenty of time on his hands to persue the hobby and maybe take up flying fixed wing aircraft. (Eh Michael?)

Michael hails from Belfast and we look forward to seeing him down at the field as often as possible.
