I agree; for those who haven't been, it's a very civilised flying site and worth a visit - especially if the weather is like last year.

Please bring any unwanted Pulstar for me to chew the tail off with my Ohm 8. :lol:

If only I had the time and space to build an Ohm 32......

Which reminds me; did the Ohm 4 make it to Ponty, Paul? Sorry I never managed to have a chat with you over the whole day - but I don't remember seeing it??

It was there Col. 49seconds into Phil's photo montage. Not sure how well it flew but it certainly looked the business.

I did fly it a couple of times but it is a bit marginal on the little SAM 35 engine and frankly, not much fun to fly. I have now fitted a DC Dart which should make it more flyable but I haven't flown it yet.
