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.

Took the day off work to take advantage of the decent weather. Cloudy and grey most of the day. Set up the external sensor first thing and had a reasonable session. Quite a few fixed wingers out but not enough to get in the way.

I was getting some jerkiness in the cyclic so I've replaced and greased the dampers.

Was having some weird issues with IU1 that weren't apparent in IU2. Went through the all flight modes and the only difference was the optimizer setting. Set them all to the lowest setting and all is good. No idea what it does though.
Finished early due to bad visibility.

The A is working great again. Got some good flights and I can see I'm making some progress.

OWB failed on the A on the first spool-up. Took the B out, but it needed quite a bit of work to get it flying nicely.
It was too dark for sunglasses and the cold air was making my eyes water so I didn't stay long. It was probably a better evening for the foamies.
OWB has been replaced ready for tomorrow.

Wasn't expecting to fly with such a bad forecast but the rain held off. Some good windy practice.
