The Field

Hello Flight Line Gang…
Me again, Mr President (Commander in chief) whom must be obeyed has requested/commanded Thursday for flying so who are we to argue and I’m certainly not game to go against a presidential decree of this nature so the WX is on his head and man at this stage it’s gunna be a hot one with “30deg” predicted in the shade so in full sun around 40 so plenty of water or better still beer or a rum or two. (I’m told that alcohol is great for dehydration..well it sounds good). Winds are also predicted around 15-20 at this stage so that’s good for a change from the NW so it should be quite good flying conditions so they say…

Flight Line Cafe will be open for business and from the Club Rooms for shade and to keep the tempers and drinks cool so along with that, sausages in hand please along with bacon and eggs etc etc…

I’m expecting big things this week in relation to funnies as I’m going to have the camera permanently fixed on anything flying as I know you are all getting horribly bored with no funnies soon we’ll have to start staging funnies so to keep my reputation of being a pain in the arse camera dude and I can’t let that happen…

So as it stands: Thursday, meet @ “The Field” Rifle Range Road, Sandford around 1000, for the late comers as usual the gate will be closed not locked so open and close behind you please to keep the fluffy things behind the fences… WX permitting I’ll have the twin airborne along with the bixler doing FPV stuff.

Don’t forget sun hats or anything that give you/us shade and plenty of water…see you Thursday.

Visitors/friends are welcome to join us for a sausage/a look/a chat/ to torment/ a test flight etc,Β  all we ask is any visitor on flying days observe our basic safety rules..

    El presidente,
    I am fine to do Thursday, but Wednesday looks better for the winds. The wind is forecast then to be Easterly – 0-5 knots at 11:00 and 5-10 knots at 14:00 whereas Thursday winds are forecast 5-10 and 15-15 respectfully.
    Your humble and obedient serf.

    FYI boaty sailing big boat person.. Our esteemed El President has an appointment Wednesday and as he missed last week for the same reason he now has pulled rank on us and forced a presidential order signed and sealed with his honourable presidential seal of command that we bestowed on him but we really didn’t realise he would actually use that power hense the reason to impeach him at our AGM, we just can’t have this sort of power being abused in this manner… πŸ˜ŽπŸš€πŸ›«πŸ›¬βœˆ.. But the funny thing is today I have been reliably informed the said person has been kicked out of his very own house/castle/presidential palace so the Rosehaven film crew could do their stuff so you see there is some justice left in the world..πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜΄πŸ€‘

    Well, El Presidente has been permitted to return to his quarters, returned in pristine condition, so all’s well! I missed two flying days, Stephen, and my forecast shows good winds and temp, so I don’t feel guilty; if a bit of wind bothers you, I shall provide hot glue as required….Looking forward to a magnificent day in “good” company…using the term “good’ rather loosely in Kermit’s case!

  4. Moose

    Oh well its time the Moose made a profound statement so here goes:
    I will be there

  5. I will be there also with the Bix 2 and BuddyBox if needed. Will also have the X-Vert ready for another round. May be a bit windy for the big Gooney Bird but perhaps the Raptor will be ok for some FPV work

    Girls !!! The wind is not looking all that great Thursday, now predicated to be 25 -35klm that getting up a tad for our aircraft what you all think I’m inclined to pull the pin as it’s 30deg and getting too windy…πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜žπŸ˜ŸπŸ˜•πŸ™ƒ

    Another alternative is to do a late afternoon flight as we have planned for a few years and never done it. The wind on most days is dropping late afternoon so in light of that instead of maybe canning the flying entirely why don’t we do late afternoon Wednesday or Thursday. I know Mr President will not attend a late afternoon flight but at least doing a flight later will be much better than not having a flight at all. We could meet around 4,30-ish for a bbq if required while the wind drops then get out on the field and hopefully the temp will have dropped a tad by then.

    Anyway girls, just a suggestion to throw around the gang…..

    1. I’m fine for a later flight either day, just need 1/2 hour notice but on checking the marine winds forecast for today & tomorrow, at this stage whilst this morning is very little wind it will pick up this afternoon & not drop out till around 8:00 pm.
      Overall tomorrow still looks like a better day wind wise overall.

  8. Bad Angel

    Well we will leave it as it stands in plan A… If it get’s up I will video the funnies..😎

    Let me start with the El Presidente words of wisdom it seems the Mooose has been having words with our presidente I say this because of his words used β€œgood rather loosely in Kermit’s case! ” could only be influenced by that dastardly long legged moooose who on numerous occasions has run over the frog giggling whilst doing so I presume this is because of the frogs desire to be the top frog or in layman’s terms the new el president who would remove loud obnoxious furry long legged wana be ‘flyer… ha …never happen will mooose be at the field .. his answer “i will be there ” tusk tusk… Sea side Mitch finishes with his reply with ” your humble and obedient surf ” when Im elected just obedient surf will be sufficient TOP GUN training school will be in operation so please keep the noise down AND would someone keep the water trough filled outside for the mooose please

  10. Just remember to charge your batteries, including flight batteries, radio batteries & camera batteries.

    Is it worth starting a bit earlier, say 10:30 or even 10:00 so we perhaps miss the later wind and the afternoon heat, just a thought.

  11. Kermit

    well then who makes that decision if I were EL PRESIDENT E I would say okedoke but as we have the pretender on the throne I guess we will wait and wait an wait for a decision

  12. Bad Angel

    Meet at 10-ish may have to email Ian and others don’t know how often they check the calender.. I think tomorrow earlier the better, I have found my old Gazebo gunna try out tomorrow to get some shade for fpv flying. Hasn’t been up/taken out of the bag for around 30 plus years it maybe rotten maybe ok..πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜‰

  13. Bad Angel

    Geez Froggo the poor old Mooooooosey is getting a big back hander… Careful he might start sooking..

  14. Bad Angel

    I’ll send out an updated email to all the gang..😎

  15. I’ve updated the calendar to show the new start time.
    The rest is up to the weather gods I guess

  16. Moose

    oh dear poor old green thing I think he is struggling to get two sane words out.
    putting that green object out of my mind.
    I will be there at 10: am or what ever time the gang decides
    The Moose has spoken
