      It was a rather windy day @ the Field for flying today, forecast predicted 5 to 10 knots but I reckon it was probably closet to 10 to 20 knots. Even the windsock blew away (oh that’s right we didn’t have one today).

      Anyway regardless it was blowing a gale.

      Our President Ian stayed on the ground (receiver problem) along with Gerald (cameraman for today) but Hoppy, Stephen & I flew.

      Hoppy had the AXN Clouds up, his Esky Eagles (with ribbon attached) and a couple of others I think. Stephen flew the Red Beastie (a very short flight) & I started with the Bix 2 Sport, followed with BumbleBee then Li”l Eagle & after lunch back to BumbleBee.

      I managed a bit of poor quality HatCam video of BumbleBee, (hopefully Uncle G did better with his nice new 4K Sony handicam), and some onboard footage from the permanent camera on Li’l Eagle.

      Lunch time BBQ was enjoyed by Stephen & myself while the others just had lunchbox snacks (their loss!!).

      Unfortunately the wind returned with a vengeance after lunch so we called time @ around 13:30 and headed for warmer places.

        Clipped wings or not, looks like the old AXN is still flying well.

      Here is my video of the day.

      Just need a few more lessons at the “THE TOP GUN FLIGHT SCHOOL VIDEO  PRODUCTION SECTION”.

        Very nice Uncle G, looks like you are getting the hang of your new Video Camera.

          Thanks Mike, Pretty happy with it so far, I even managed to get some of Kermit’s soft focus special effects in there!
