The Leicester Model Aero Club (LMAC) was founded in 1932, by a group of 14 to 16 year olds who flew rubber powered models on Leicester's Victoria Park. It was originally called the Stoneygate Model Aero Club after the area of the City where most of the members lived, but was renamed Leicester Model Aero Club as the membership grew. The first Secretary was Norrie Williams (sadly deceased), and the first Treasurer was the still active Reg Goadby.

Replaced the remaining links and swapped the head for one with new dampers. Had a few flights in the wind and called it a day.

Was going to go before work, but it started raining just as I was leaving. Had a lunchtime session instead.
It was pretty windy, useful for trying the routines. After 4 months of struggle with the Jack Sparrow flight to music, I've decided to ditch it for something else. I think I've found the music I'm replacing it with and now I have 8 days to plan the routine and practice it. I could skip the music round but I might as well try and put something together.

Wind in the face made things difficult, but good for practice. Had a visitor while I was there. Amazing to see him dropping below the treeline doing manoeuvres. There were 2 of them around and one came in really close.
Changed some links and stayed a few minutes extra to charge up the packs for tomorrow morning.

Awesome long weekend. Friday at Weston, lots of flying and watching the guys practice. Saturday at MK for a BBQ and more flying. Had a few thermal warnings in the afternoon, but I think being at Weston in the heat would have been too much for me. Sunday at Gumley. Not too busy, got lots of flying in. Took an afternoon break and went back for some evening flying to finish it off.

Had to increase the negative pitch to make the collective even. For some reason it isn't reaching the endpoints in any of the flight modes. I may need to redo the setup.
One of of the flights I managed to exit out of battery selection. That meant no warnings and the ESC went into LVC and shut down. Fortunately it was giving a bit of power and I managed to get it back to the field. Never done that before, very odd.
Eventually got too windy to fly.
