The Field
156 Rifle Range Road, Sandford, Tasmania, 7020, Southern Tasmania

Event Type

Looks like the weather will still be OK for a final Pre Christmas fly on Wednesday, a bit of light wind in the morning that should drop out to virtually nothing early afternoon.

I have a 9:30 appointment so am unlikely to make it to the field before 10:30 at the earliest but if Ross or Kermit wish to open up and start earlier then that will be fine.

Provided that Greg remembers to replace the old locks on the Rifle Range gate we will be entering & flying down the middle of that field, at least till the current field gets mown.

If the locks have not been refitted then simply enter via our current gate & follow the track around to the Rifle Range paddock.

I’m sure there will be a BBQ for those that wish.

As usual please state your intentions to attend or not so we have a rough idea on numbers.

    Well Predator the Moose will be in attendance with something for the B.B.Q and a plane to fly of course

    The Moose wishes all R.C.Toys Tasmania members a Happy Christmas and a much better new year

      Thanks Mr Moose, it won’t take much for 2021 to be an improvement on 2020 but in all fairness I think we lucky ones down in Tassie had a far better 2020 than most of the mainland. Not too much to complain about down here, at least not whilst the Drawbridge is UP !!

    I’ll be there. I cut down a spare 6×4 prop and then balanced it for my Arctic Cat and it has much more thrust now so I’m keen to try it out.

    1. Predator

      Ron, I have some 5 x 4 – 3 bladed props in CW & CCW if you want to try one of them. They are what I run on the Swampy with the upgraded motor.

    2. Uncle G

      Ron I have some spare 50 X 50 3 blade like you tried on Saturday?

  4. Hoppy

    Ron you get more thrust when the prop is on the right way!

    Mike are we allowed to drive on the new paddock or will we need to park at the shed?

    I will be there.

    1. Predator

      Hoppy, if entry is via the Rifle Range gate then just make a track similar to what we used to have around the hut & down to mid field.

      If entry has to be via the gate we have recently been using then drive round where you & I went on Saturday, go through the 2 gates and drive up to mid field.

      Greg said it is OK for us to use that paddock now its been mown but he has to reinstall the locks for access via Rifle Range gate. It should be done by now but may not be.
      I should be there by 10:30 or shortly after but Kermit or Ross can open up if you are all starting earlier than that.

    HI folks
    Is it still a 10:30 start

  6. Kermit

    yet im a cumin an yep if all has been done i will open the gate………………………..for a small charge …narh just kiddin it will be a big charge im good for 10.15

  7. Ron

    Thanks Uncle G and Predator for the offer to try the props. My modified 6×4 seems better than Uncle G’s 50×50 three bladed prop and I reckon it will be better than the 5×4 three bladed prop so I reckon I’ll be right. Oh, and Hoppy, thanks for the advice for putting the prop on the correct way 🙂

    Can’t make it we have the grandkids/family staying

  9. Ian Milne

    Not this time I’m afraid…..nothing to fly yet, so I shall be going with “Er Indoors”, the Presidents Lady, to do a bit of shopping!

    (Next time for the motor, Kermit. Sorry!)

    Can,t make it. Happy and safe Christmas to everyone
