Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us today down at the farm and we can get a few more flying things airborne and produce a bit of flight video etc.
Last Wednesday it started off just a bit chilly and slightly windy and went downhill fast. The day was only saved by a very enjoyable BBQ lunch and servicing afternoon at the roost of the Bad Angel. At least we got several issues with members planes sorted and hopefully they will be in the air today.
Well today the weather was great and we had a huge turn up of pilots today @ The Farm.
There were 3 Bixler 3’s, a Bixler 2, an AXN Cloud Surfer, a Skipper, a Drifter (FPV), a powered glider (old school construction), a home brew trainer & the Grand Tundra along with an assortment of DJI Mavic & Phantom multi rotors.
Much flying was done by all and there were only two minor mishaps, Hoppy parked his Drifter in long grass several paddocks away & couldn’t get airborne again so had to endure the rather long “Walk of Shame” to hand launch it & Bro, after numerous successful flights with his Bix 3, ventured a bit close to “the tree” and is now parked there waiting for a big wind to dislodge him. Other than that the day went off pretty much without a hitch.
We had a BBQ lunch break around 1:00 pm before Moose & Kermit took their DF65’s for a sail in the farm dam while Hoppy buzzed them with his Skipper seaplane & Uncle G and Predator gave their Swampy’s a workout.
A bit of video from my Grand Tundra(fitted with twin HD cameras.
