My (Paul) new Wilga (bloody Ugly 2) sitting on display waiting for its first maiden.
The Wilga fly's. Takeoff was smooth and easy and then.........
MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY
A gremlin from another world or maybe just in my skills, something was amiss. Pitchy, unresponsive and down right mindless flying led to a stall and.............
Results of a 300"G" landing.....
As the wind blew, an air of uncertainty developed and members began to talk of an unknown presence at the field. Talk of spy satellites and unmanned drones was hot on everyone's lips. Could it be the CIA or the Russians trying to invade our space. Hmmmmmm. Something was amiss. The need to explain this tragedy was at the forefront of everyone's thoughts because, of course, It could not of been me or my building skills that caused the crash.
After all the conspiracy theory's had calmed flying resumed without any further incident......
Graeme's new engined Pc9
After trying to adjust the carby, change the plug and even kick the think
it just would not run correctly and so it was back to the pits. Always next week Graeme.
Trent receiving some instruction from James as he flew his trainer.
Great flying Trent. Successfully going solo and doing a great job.
Keep up the good work.Trent went on to fly many more successful solo flights.
I might need get some lessons from you Trent.
Curtis had his ever reliable astro hog and his re worked Extra ready for action.
Turk brought out his Dual Ace twin for a bit of engine tuning. It really looks slick and should be pretty quick in the air. Be great to see it fly. Turk has incorporated a set of retracts with longer oleo's for extra ground clearance. Bigger engines means bigger props.
With both engines running it is soooo sweet to hear them running in sync. Almost makes me want to finish my Caribou and get it out to the field.
Dennis flew his Yak with ever increasing skills. Great work again Dennis.
Now who is that spy beside you Dennis..
Great to see Rob back out at the field.
Come on Rob, we know you love the chaos..
Get that MXS-R back in the air...
As per flying safety instruction Number 12-4.1 The team gather at the end of the day to discuss the course of the days events. And there's that guy "Rob" again. I think he enjoys this part of the day too.
See you all next week. Just remember while you all take it easy this week you only have to clean your aircraft ready for next week while i have to decide what do i build next.......
