There are three secrets to a good landing. Unfortunately, nobody can remember what they are ! ;)

Ron, do you mind if I copy how you did the Sourcerer label on your wing? That'll be in keeping with the Sourcerer I'd acquired on ebay.

Friday I'd managed loads of enjoyable flying with my Pushover on the site that has a slope. The slope doesn't produce enough lift for slope soaring, but was able to fly with little power :D

The video footage just shows launches and me bringing it in from behind for landings or flyby's. In between I was ensuring I kept it out and away from the slope as I've experienced many problems in the past with pockets of dead air that would case the model to stall. This caused a spell of taking home broken models :( not recently though :D

No problem. Thanks for asking Carl.

'Just had a terrific couple of days at Old Warden...... Yesterday was a bit windy but still got plenty of flying. Today was fantastic with very light winds, BIG Thermals and sunshine all day.

It was great to see Phil there...... He found the flying so strenuous that he had to sit down for it!

It's not often you can thermal soar a Coquette.......

It normally glides like a brick but it caught a beauty and I had to spiral it down!

I took six models and flew them all with no more damage than a couple of holes in the tissue. All in all a memorable day. :P :P :P

A while ago I thought it was about time I got into the Sharkface action and today I maidened mine. It was built from one of Neil's kits. You'll notice after my first launch I was shocked at the response from the rudder, so will calm that down a little. Had some great fun with it once I'd wised up to the rudder :D :



Excuse the motor noise. I balanced the prop quickly but it seems there was still a little vibration.
