      And what a perfect Fly Day it was.  22Degrees, lovely sun & virtually no wind.

      We needed to relocate back to one of our older paddocks @ the Field today as sheep drenching was under way at the shearing shed paddock and we needed to keep clear.

      The old paddock was fine but many had forgotten how close some of the trees were and it didn’t take long before one of the trees jumped out in front of Mr Moose’s Razor. I’m sure it will come down ok with the next windy day.

      Moose was joined soon after by Ian with his EDF powered TrainStar, next door in an even bigger tree & right at the top.

      Even I noticed the limited space when trying to land the Excalibur V2 as we had a cross wind at the time so needed to be high enough to clear the trees then try & get on the ground before hitting the fence on the other side.  In the end I just flew over the fence & landed in the adjacent paddock as it was easier.

      Eventually the wind (what there was of it) swung round westerly which made landing a bit easier.

      There was a good turn up with 7 pilots today all getting airtime (even Ian today-be it short lived)

      I had the accompaniment of “Ralph” our resident eagle who joined in with some thermalling, tagging along behind (at times very closely behind) the Excalibur V2

      The V2 thermalled well today, as did the BumbleBee.  I still had 67% of the 4S 2200mAh 40C battery left after a good 15 minute flight with the V2.

      Also had a very close call with Andrew’s 3 metre glider & my BumbleBee, watch the video to see just how close it was (maybe a coat of dust separating the two but that would be about all !!).

      That’s All Folks !!

      Mike That was too close for comfort with the Bumble Bee. Glad we didn’t contact each other.

      Uncle G agrees with the honorable judge.
