Mr Scott recently brought my attention to an excellent hobbyking deal of the Catalina at £50 it was a bit of a bargain for a PNF. When it arrived it was made of polystyrene which is not the best, I did replace a couple of servos, they seemed a bit iffy, and changed the props since […]
Some great soaring views from above and around the Great Orme. Well worth making sure that you are viewing this one in HD Thank you very much again Mr Adrian
Pooh bear continuing on his mission to keep the sky’s of Britain safe has recently been spotted above the Great Orme at Llandudno Buy war bonds, keep him flying!

After learning the lessons of my previous flight (http://blog.smfc.co.uk/2014/07/fpv-on-a-new-glider-in-the-wind/) and with Scott kindly donating a Super Cub to the cause I have now fitted the FPV equipment, GPS and OSD.
