      Finally got a day with no (well less than lately) wind, no rain & sun to boot.

      There were only 4 flyers today, Gerald, Ross Kermit (no planes, just his quad) & yours truly but as usual we had a ball.

         

      At the start of flying the winds were virtually non existent and ideal for Gerald & myself to try out the VTOL aircraft, whilst these will fly in light to moderate winds they are very lightweight & best suited to windless conditions.

       

      Wasn’t long before the Bad Angel had his Bix 3 airborne, but as conditions were so smooth he decided to land & go back up with FPV

       

      but even with light winds things don’t always go to plan

       

      Leave it to Uncle G to show how it should be done

       

       

      Ross got in some FPV time, the first for ages so his video from today should be interesting.

      Kermit had his DJI Phantom back to optimal performance so naturally there had to be a parachute jump or two.

         

          

      The Bix 2 Predator Sport never got a flight today, I was too busy playing around with the COG of Ian’s old Raptor. The poor old girl has more patches than a patchwork quilt but she still flies and with a bit less nose counterweight & half flaps for take off she flew very well. Still a bit of a handful with the stabiliser disabled but I’m slowly getting used to it. It’s about time I learned to fly without relying on the Auto Pilot/stabiliser that’s fitted to most of our planes.

      Here is some video from the old “SteamPunk Flyer”, ex Ian’s Raptor.
