FAI!

Nice one Martyn. Now if only my flying abilities matched my models I'd be laughing. Top hats still defeat me and look more like I'm having a seizure.

Count me in.........Real Aeromodelling where you build your own model and fly it! But I am just a fly for fun pilot not a competition pilot. Concours d' elegance contest maybe.

I definitely fall into the club flyer category - I am trying to get my 'B' next year and loops and rolls and occassionally an '8' is my limit. However, I just love those models and something like this will help me (and I suspect others) to improve their skill level.

Persobally, I don't have a problem with electric as an alternative to 'proper' fuel nerd, the most important thing is to get people flying.

Is this type of pattern flying limited to certain model types then?

I think it's more centered around the models than the routine John, just an excuse to reminisce about and fly the models of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

at least that's how I see it - others may have different views. It helps that the flying style was smoooth and the models quite sturdy making them good sunday hacks.

I'm very interested, it suits me right down to the ground, retro models with retro gear.

Regarding the name, the real UKCAA will probably sort it by claiming the domain, I've seen that happen.

Cheers

Phil

Getting there.....................wink

Model in my possession (ARTF but hey, it fits the bill AND the spirit of FLYING these classics!) Period engine in storage............ (new in 1985, probably first avail early eighties).

Great idea, I look forward to "moving back in time" as a friend pointed out recently! Personally, I think the "ERA" ie pre-turnaround/ pre 1986, is spot-on. Turnaround brought huge developments and changes in design, performance and power requirements, and the original smooth-flying classics began to get lost in the development race. Power-wise, my (personal) opinion, is: ideally .61 2-stroke, OR same size case (ie modern .90-in-a-60-case) engines, for simplicity and cost. Leccy and 4-strokes shouldn't be banned outright as we're trying to get participation after all, but will be in the significant minority, and we're not really into a formalised competition environment.

Regards, Bill
