      And what a beautiful day it was down @ the field today in Southern Tas, rather windy but sunny and warm. Everyone was hanging out for a fly so no one was overly bothered by the wind.

      We had Kermit, Gadget, Predator, Seaside Mitch & Bad Angel and later in the day we were joined by Brian, a band mate of BA’s & his Phantom 4 quad.

      Uncle G was AWOL today due to sailing but 6 still wasn’t a bad turn up for a week day.

      We had planes, gliders, biplanes & quads today so really a mixed bag.

      I also got to test my modified X-Vert (VTOL) wing. It flew OK but now that the props are no longer keyed to the motor shafts the counter rotating RHS prop kept unscrewing itself. Should be easily fixed with a longer screw & a drop of Loctite before the next test.

      We flew till around midday, had a break for our customary BBQ & chinwag and then back to flying, finishing up around 2:00pm.

      Footnote: If you keep a close eye on the “Around the Field” video, towards the end, you may spot BA getting attacked (and bitten) by his Phantom 3 quad.
