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.

A quick blast with Scott in the morning before the wind picked up. Then home to service the genny and replace the motor on the A machine. A few more flights in the evening as the wind dropped.

Windy when I arrived so did some cleaning and checking while I waited for it to drop. Turned out to be a lovely evening for it, even found a blackberry bush to munch on.

Decent evening of flying with Tom. Last flight of the day and I was messing around with autos. I did an inverted delayed bailout, and flicked the switch the wrong way, thereby cutting the motor instead of powering it up. I flicked it back immediately but fast spool-up had been cancelled and I knew I couldn't save it. It plopped onto the grass inverted and fell over. After a brief checkover, it was flying again. The boom had shifted up a few mm, but that was fixed easily enough, so I'm not counting it as a crash. Lucky escape!

A couple of flights in the murk and occasional drizzle. Tom was doing some range testing after his 1.5k Typhoon crash yesterday.

Larcs first to get some heli flights in before 9 o'clock. Then to Gumley for gala day and some fixed wing flying. Was hoping to get some of the BBQ and then go to MK, but the food was taking too long so I ended up going without.
A nice session at MK with Mike and the 2 Daves. I finished flying at 6 because of the dark skies, but stayed another hour to fly the Dave's helis and fiddle with their settings.

The forecast for the next 3 days was rain, so naturally I storage charged the packs this morning. Of course this evening turned out to be flyable, which meant a mad rush to pick Tom up and charge everything on one charger.
No wind meant lots of midges and spiders but nice to be out anyway.

Up early at Larcs. Was intending to stay a while but the genny died and refused to start again. Went to Gumley for a couple of hours before it got too busy. Went through to MK and had a great afternoon. It was pretty windy, but I think I'm getting better and the wind doesn't seem to affect me as much.
Sold a PSU and charger to David, so I need to order a 2nd iCharger.
