Awesome! What a fantastic day.

I arrived expecting to fly in the usual spot but there were activities about to start involving a full-size heli, so perhaps heli rides or something like that.

After a good old chat in the café we made our way down the far end to fly, thankfully the sun (directly in front of us) was nicely obscured all morning. The cloud thinned at around midday and for the following two hours the sun was about half visible, nothing sunglasses didn't fix though.

The sky was quite busy with several gliders taking off and a few passing planes, but we had 4 spotters constantly looking out for traffic, so absolutely no problem whatsoever, and really nice to see them too as they flew by in front of us.

The Goblin 570 had its 2nd ever flight, or 1st really considering its only ever time in the air before now was just myself buddying Clare for a practice hovering around flight. Anyway it flies superb and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the Logo, but I didn't want to push my luck as I was feeling adventurous, so after only 1 flight I just left it standing pretty in the pits.

Leicester Model Aero Club

A nice session with blue skies and light wind. I had a eureka moment with the PWR when I realised why it had scored low and why DO does them different to me. I had thought it was a style thing, but I've realised I was just doing them wrong.

Home for the F1 and then started putting some music together for next year's FTM.

Practicing F3n set manoeuvres with Richard V and Dave S.Found out is ok being able to do manoeuvres any where in the sky but when you try and start them in a certain position and keep them centralized as required for F3n its a hole different ballgame.Much more practice required

Pretty good day at the field. Dad and I flew the Yellow trainer and Dad landed it. A little rough but nothing broke. I flew my Stryker for the first time in years and on an EDF 3700KV motor swinging a 4x4.5 prop. It was great and was about as fast as the stock motor. Time to put in the 4S next!!!

Leicester Model Aero Club 3D Champs, Loughborough

RichardV

23 flights

2 Early flights at Gumley to check the rebuild and also make sure the genny was OK before I drove through to Loughborough for the 3D Champs funfly. Initially it was a bit rubbish, with the rain, and carpark being a long way from the flightline. I didn't have any cover, so I just had to hide until the rain disappeared enough to get the table, genny and chargers set up. After that it went really well, got to fly with George and the blokes from WHFC. Met atomiccomp and Maria.

Kind of a mixed day. Dad and I went to the field and were the only ones there. It was very windy which wasn't fun on the planes. Dad's Yellow Trainer flew great and ran smooth. My little Red Trainer however, didn't run good at all. We struggled with the tune and the engine cut off in flight. We then decided to call it quits on that plane for the day. I was getting my nitro heli tuned very well and when I was running very low on fuel, I did one final auto. I then decided to do a skidding auto. But at about two feet off the ground, I realize that I had these massive rubber grommets on the skids and I knew the heli was just going to stop dead. So I pulled back but didn't have the head speed and botched the auto. A link popped off and one plastic servo horn stripped. I got very lucky!

Been struggling to do rolling loops, Richard V noticed a problem in my heli setup than could have been hindering my progress.I've improved the setup on the heli so hoping it will help me crack the rolling loop manoeuvre.Richard V was entertaining us with some risky autos at the end of the day, he rolled out of one really close to the ground but the wind had changed direction and the heli went in, luckily the damage wasn't too bad.

MK Heli Club

RichardV

32 flights

A long day at MK. I had intended to got to Jason's funfly in North Notts, but the forecast showed rain all day there and clear at MK for the morning. I didn't expect to be long so didn't bother taking lunch.
Woods was already there. He had a few flights and then crashed both his Goblins. Not much damage, but enough to end his day early.
I flew almost non-stop, getting some good practice in.
Having been at the field for 10 hours with no food, I got a bit tired, which turned out to be a problem. During a rolling auto, I just didn't have enough headspeed to complete it and the heli hit the deck. Not too hard, but enough to break the skids, blades, boom and a blade grip arm. It'll be a relatively cheap/quick fix, but shouldn't have happened.
At least tomorrow is too wet n windy for flying, so it's a build day for me.

Picked Tom up for some evening flying. I'm getting more confident in the dark, which is always dangerous. All the new moves I'm working on are taking a chunk out of my flight time. I think I was ending up just over 4 minutes on most of them.
