There is a lot of members away today but still had a good turnout.
He also has adapted a servo release to his trainer in an ambitious effort to air launch a tiny electric aircraft he plans to hang from underneath.
You can just make out the little aircraft slung under the fuselage. It was a bit of a "back to the drawing board" moment as it snapped the tail off the little foamy in the first 10 feet of taxiing. Ohh well good try trent.
Rob's MXS-R looking good and ready to go.
Great to see you back out at the field Rob. Here he is getting ready to fly.Gathering those rampant stomach moths and trying to turn them into butterflies. Well, happy to report that his first flight was a ripper. After a few circuits to get the thumbs back in tune he finished with an absolute greaser of a landing. Well done. What was all the panic about. After he left the flight box i did, however, find a huge pile of newly laid "O"rings he had left there.
Dennis getting his Yak ready. A few slight engine adjustments and it was in the bag. Another great entertaining flight Dennis. You have those thumbs sorted.
This pair were noted "gloating we think" over their great flights. Don't wear out that welcome back stuff Rob. It dosen't last that long. Hehehehe
Steve was back with his Sbachy. Still flying like a pro. Damn i hate that.....
As you can see by the full pilots box. No one wanted to try and compete with Steve's flying.
Always great to watch Steve. That thing is a bullet with the EME60 on board.
Bob fully kitted out safety wise was ready to punish his Pitts.
Graeme getting in some solo work with the rest of the roulette's staggering their flight times. I had a few flights of my PC9 but a loose clunk in the fuel tank caused a few engine problems so it was put away in one piece this time instead of pieces..
The flight line soon filled up and was a pretty busy place all day.
A great sigh of relief came over the field as Curtis arrived. Is it you or your Refreshments esky that we are all so happy to see????
Curtis had a his usual flight line but i think engine troubles still plagued the extra.
I had to leave early today so this photo was taken as they all sat around and waited for the bar to open.
As you can see there was a lack of smiles and a lack of refreshments.
You could always go flying if you wanted something to fill in the time.
see you all next week..
