      It was a balmy spring day @ the field today, 17 degrees, no rain & no wind.

      There were only 4 of us in attendance today, Kermit, Gerald, Ricky & yours truly & we all got some good flying in, even Kermit, who got off to a bad start with his Cloud Surfer, managed a couple of good flights with his Cub, till he ripped the wheels off.

      Ricky lost the wing off Limbo Dancer when the rubber bands failed but luckily no significant damage was done when the fuse & wing landed separately @ different ends of the field.

      At least his Heron Glider flew very nicely.

      Both Gerald & I got away incident free today.

      Once I got the V22 Osprey back on the workbench the gremlin that was stopping it flying today was quickly sorted & it is ready for our next outing.

      Glad you had no wind as here in Philippines there was a super typhoon (equivalent to a Cat 5 hurricane). Being a good skipper I left my wife home alone and went to my boat all night. Around midnight it was 40 to 50kts gusts on the boat with a lot of rain. So no drone footage today but here is brief clip from my phone. My boat had no damage but my phone got rain in it from taking this video which then puffed up the battery. Anyway phone now fixed with a new battery and glue.

      We’re back in Tassie and ready to fly little planes again – Sundays excepted.

      Brilliant videos one very scary and the other by Monsieur Kermit.  Chris’ video really capture the midnight fun.  I’m glad you, your boat, and more importantly, your wife survived the typhoon ok.  Our friends in Da Nang got a direct hit as well, but they didn’t have any serious damage either.

      During our last three weeks in the Bad Wunnenberg Germany we traveled around a little and found a a few of Kermit’s friends during our travels and he hit a few of the tourist spots as well but stayed out of sight.Kermit's home in Bad Wunnenberg

      Nice to know you made it home ok.

      With the forecast weather I don’t think we will be flying this week but hopefully it will all improve soon.

    • #12431

      Yes, Fingers crossed.  When we meet I can tell you all about flying on big planes these days.

        And to top it all off Bro straightened your motor shaft while you were away gallivanting around Europe with Le Frog.

    • #12450

      Now that is fantastic. All we need now is some flying weather 🙂

    • #12464

      Just found this, thought it may be of interest to some, especially those involved in the “Phantom Brick Incident”

    • #12465

      So now we know the truth of where the brick in my back yard came from.


    • #12466

      no no no  Mr sinker dearest mate cobber  the video you can see  was made way back in 2020 as a test for lifting power from a drone I assure you dear sinker its just a coincidence  that a brick was found imbedded  into your lawn
