      It was an absolutely perfect flying day today & the Farm.

      No rain (for a change), virtually no wind & a balmy 17 degrees, climbing to 21 degrees later in the afternoon.

      We had a good turn up of pilots today including Kermit (Linal), Andrew, Gadget (Ron), SeasideMitch (Stephen) & Predator (Mike). We were missing the Sinker (Uncle G) who is still recovering from a very bad dose of “Man Flu” but reckons he’ll be back on deck by the weekends sailing @ the canal.

      Our illustrious President, IanRM was also missing in action, hopefully he didn’t get locked out (farmer Greg requires the gate to be relocked at the moment) but we waited for 5 minutes after the allotted time & then kept an ear on the phone most of the day but all to no avail. You were missed Ian.

      Poor old Kermit was a bit worse for wear today with some foreign body in his eye (from his recent tractor repairs) and giving him hell. He did manage a couple of flights though & I saw him on the camera on more than one occasion but you may need to forgive him for any “Soft Focus” issues today as I’m not sure he could see what he was videoing

      Really like the Osprey footage and is a strong candidate for an award. Here is a full scale one near me in Subic Bay that has been flying over us a lot. No new vid from me.

      Perfect weather for flying today. Well picked.

      Facinating video of the Osprey Mike. Amazing watching the transitions of the diferent flight modes.

      Here are excerpts of my hatcam video from today:

      Also, this is the glue stick I mentioned earlier today that I find works well on the 3D printer:

        Andrew, I have 3 x 5mm Prop Adaptors, I’ll bring them next time we fly if you can’t source yourself a replacement for your loose one.
