It is with great sadness that I have to report the loss of a truly amazing plane. The Blue Riot had flown many a sortie, it carried planes on piggyback, flew with smoke, rockets and even ribbons. On one occasion it even carried a banner for someones 40th, but we wont go into that. […]
Always wanting to try something new in this wonderful hobby I decided to get myself a Durafly auto G2 and try flying an autogyro. First I tried to find as many reviews and comments from people who had already flown one, the general consensus was easy to fly as long as there is a nice […]
Had the opportunity to have a fly in Hillfield park the other day, nice big area to fly in marred only by the fact the public can walk up to you.
Since I’ve had the Decathlon it has never really flown “right” for one reason or another, had to rebuild the motor mount twice, fix the battery bay, In the end the wing support struts gave up, and as that would mean stripping all the covering off the wings to fix I though why not fly […]
The general gist to how this came about was a small conversation between myself and Mr Chris one Tuesday not so long ago… Coming up the field tonight I asked? No said Mr Chris Not to worry then says I, hopefully catch you Sunday Great said Mr Chris, get some photos of plane silhouettes while […]
My poor old shark is falling apart so I thought I’d give it a last outing before the motor finally gives up, first flight was great as always, second flight was shorter as lo and behold the motor started making funny noises lol. Had a brownout while inverted too, thankfully it came back on before […]
Must thank Mr Chris for letting me have a go of his FPV goggles today, was brilliant fun and really enjoyed it. It gives a whole new perspective to the hobby… Apologies for the music it was free off you tube when I edited, saves a whole lot of prop noise.
Chris decided to put his electronic switch to the test. Not happy with the thrust from one rocket engine though, he decided to try two… And just in case you were wondering what happened…
The day of the maiden had finally arrived for Barry’s Spitfire, last seen in his biplane thread, I managed to take a couple pictures for posterity… And a pic of the lovely cockpit… Fantastic looking paint job Barry. Sorry I couldn’t get more of the flight on video but was struggling to see in the […]
Tried to keep up with the Viggen of Mr Chris so as to get it on film… Nearly had it as a hood ornament at one stage though lol And just in case you missed that fly-by…
