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.

Got to MK by 7 and flew for 2 hours before Bob and others started arriving. Got to listen to Andy's interesting observations on IRCHA. Gary put his Logo into the ground in a big way. It almost reached my car and Allessio had to run from a blade that went spinning off. Only a few minutes later Andy had a lockout and crashed his nitro 600. Not too bad, but Gary's is a rekit.
Got loads of flying in, had a nap around 5 0'clock and left at 6. Great day and banter with Bob, Mike and everyone else.

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.

Went out to MK early to get some flying in before the rain arrived. Did some work with Mike on getting his B. Was going nicely until the rain arrived. Went home for lunch, and then on to Gumley for a few more flights under blue skies.

Started off at Gumley. It never really got busy so I stayed until it was time to go to MK.
Efforts were made to retrieve Mike's Goblin bits from the tree using his gaffer taped waggler.
DO showed up later and we had a good conversation about set manoeuvres. He's still miles ahead of me, but at least I'm at a level where can speak about the same moves.
My FS routine is pretty much down. I need to refine some of the transitions, but at least I'm ready to move onto the new FTM.

A long morning doing BMFA tests at CMHC. Then through to MK for some SM and FS practice. Got to watch Duncan doing his prep for the World Champs and pick up some tips from him and Wayne. DavidS and I did some practice calling together. Hopefully we can make it a regular thing.
Mike put his Goblin in the big tree (again?) He managed to knock the body out but the canopy and boom are still up there.
Home at 8 for F1 qualifying.

Superb day at MK. Arrived early and got loads of FS and SM flights in before anyone arrived. Then had a decent afternoon of practicing bits and playing around. Finished with some fun/risky autos. Home for F1 and an adult beverage, another awesome day done.

Started off OK, occasional drizzle but generally flyable. After 12 it just got a little too windy, too cold and the visibility got worse, so I called it a day. I'm trying a slightly higher headspeed on the advice of Phil, we'll see if it pans out.
