(8-12 mph) Gentle breeze

700e A
35 flights
Avg. flight time 00:05:00

I was aiming to be there really early, but got delayed a bit. I didn't miss anything because the drizzle only stopped at about 8 anyway. From there on it was endless flying for me. Quite a few people were out, including Baz who took his 700n out for a bit. I don't do nitro, but I can appreciate it when people know how to get it working Andy did over 2 hours on his 600n and that engine just goes flight after flight.
Alessio had his 700x go in after one of his servo screws came out in flight. It's not a bad crash, mostly boom, should be a quick fix.
After 2 weeks of struggling with weak side piro rainbows, it finally came together today, and I couldn't get enough of them, I think I flew more of right rudder piros than anything else.
Eventually it was just myself and David until it got to grey for me to fly any more. Home for a adult bev and a bit of F1 qualis. Perfect day!

Incredible flying today Rich, nose down inverted funnels into opposite circuits, inspired mate, never seen them before. The washbowl inverted waltzy thing, wonderful control 😃

Very cool indeed. 1:28 got very low, got me going watching on screen just now, would have been nice to be there in person. See you soon mate.
Edit: I'm assuming that was you flying.

Thanks Dave. They're not original moves unfortunately, straight out of Ben Storick and Kyle Dahl's book. It's nice to be at a level where I do that now 😀

It defo went lower than intended. Strange that the video looks fairly high and slow, while flying it felt pretty low and medium speed. You're still invited to MK when you stop working so hard 👍
