      It was another perfect flying day today @ the Field. 24 degrees & virtually no wind till the sea breeze presented itself after lunch.

      We had six in attendance today, Moose, Ian, Gerald, Ron, Kermit & Mike and apart from Ian, who was still having a few radio issues with his TrainStar, all had multiple flights with multiple aircraft.

      We did have an interesting radio interference issue today, Ian’s Spektrum DX6 was for some reason playing up with both Moose’s & my Taranis radios. Ian turned on just as Moose launched his Razor causing it to crash on takeoff & I lost complete control of the Bix 2 Sport at the same time. As soon as Ian turned off I got full control back & Moose’s Razor flew perfectly.

      Other than that it was an uneventful day enjoyed by all.

      That’s All Folks

      I am glad a good time was had. I was going to come for a quick squirt with you but my wife became a ‘casual contact’ through her work at a big hotel here and it wasnt until 2pm Sunday that she was able to get a negative RAT so I stayed away from you all out of caution.  But I was then able to go to the cricket at 2:30 !

       

      My advice is stay away from any big hotels and their gyms as they have guests with covid but dont tell staff which rooms or guests to stay away from and dont have their own RATs to give out to staff. Basically there seems attempts to hush things up, as profit is their driver and <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>not</span> the health and wellbeing of staff or customers. So you still have to go to a choke point like the police academy and queue up and get a test.

       

      Anyway as of yesterday arvo my wife and I are OK so Im ready for the next fly. She wont be returning to work, its not worth the risk despite being tripple vaxxed.
