      The day started off slightly chilly and the wind was a tad stronger than predicted but it didn’t stop anyone from having a fly.

      Our numbers were boosted a bit today with Ron, Neil & Connor joining in but we were missing regulars Ross (Bad Angel), Ricky & Tristin.

      A couple of minor mishaps today but overall a fairly good day by all.

        Good one Ron, the Tundra’s do fly nicely.

        It’s a pity we couldn’t get some better range out of the Hat Cams.

        You definitely fly much less aggressively than I do, probably why your plane is still in one piece & mine isn’t.

        Ah well, nothing a bit of glue won’t fix.

      Well men looks like another great day good to see the videos as they are put up.

      By the way Kermit I was surprised to see so much snow had fallen on you to day when no one else was covered in it  but that’s a frogs life.

      My Li’l Eagle repairs are well under way after its “Down is up & Up is expensive” episode at the end of flying yesterday.

      The timber gear tray was trashed so I designed & printed a new one which seemed easier than stuffing around repairing the old one.

      Fits just like a finger in a bum.

      Now working on the bracket to hold the ESC and the A3-V2 stabiliser.

      With the new gear tray installed the central body has now been glued back together.

      The damaged aileron has also been repaired

      I’ll leave them overnight for the glue to dry properly then tomorrow repair the battery tray & front wheel mount and she will be all good to fly inverted once again.

        Mike I moved the ESC to under the tray and removed the small tray which was above it and mounted the stabiliser there.

          The A3 was just small enough to fit on top of the original ESC bracket but this time I’m mounting the ESC on its side under the tray with the stabiliser on top.

          All drops in from under the wing so easy to get in and out.

          This view is upside down, the esc cable ties onto the tab which drops down through the top plate into where there is plenty of cooling air flow & the stabiliser mounts on the flat top. Rx will go back where it was on the side of the fuselage under the plate.
