Been there myself last September.
This year we are not allowed hopping over for 2 days.
Hoping you're all having good fun over there this weekend!

But....
Also this Sunday will be our Dutch derivative, the 'Dutch Old Warden'
Not on an airfield, but in a vast area of pasture land.
Flying 'from the boot', FF, CL & vintage RC:

Ooh, that little Stavely looks nice, but £55 is a bit steep for me!

Ali is beyond my budget too... he wants £85 each for the RCS sets. He'll get it cos they're few & far between and for someone that will be a bargain shelfweight. Anyway I have enough!

The Staveley is a rare set though ..would make a nice conversion.
They've sold for a lot more in the past as have the RCS Reed sets..

The Stentorian Bipe looks pretty tatty and what's the flat aileron wing all about? How much was it.?

Converting old sets onto 2.4 has become really popular and I fear that by producing all these "easy to install" emulators and encoders Phil is largely responsible for driving up the price of what would otherwise be obsolete junk!

I picked up a Futaba FR22 from Ali for £35 which I didn't think was too bad. It's a bit grubby but I think it will clean up quite well ;)

It uses the exif information in the photo Paul, all these sideways photos have orientation set to 90° in their exif, so its displaying the photo correctly :D Its a problem with modern cameras, theres quite a fuss about it on Whatsapp.

Paul very kindly loaned me his miniature Cito S/C magnetic actuator set, I think it was unique in its era and works great - thanks Paul :D
