I can't remember the exact figure for the C.G on mine, started at 1/3 of chord and had no issues, still a pussy cat to fly, my own personal opinion is Ballerina Isn't likely to misbehave if you shift it back to suit you.

Clubs in my opinion are not informal, you organised, put things in place, run your own field, have rules and constitutions, we are not an informal gathering kicking a football about on the local field or park. We're subject to rules and have a National association.

Thread: Petrol or Glow?

I was at the flying field early the other day with a gallon of glow set for as much flying as I could get in [ Like Jon I have 35ml around trip so when there I go for the day ] When a chap said " that will cost you a lot " . I got in a good day's flying and burned half a gallon [ all my engines above 40's are four strokes ]

He burned very little petrol but that was because he could not get his motor to run until the day was nearly done.

Just an observation but petrol's under 25cc tend to give more problems.

Why do small petrols give more problems, mine don't, nor do the other numerous ones at our club. Noisy they may be until you correct it, unreliable ? We must be a lucky club.

Either choice is fine, each have there own pluses and minuses, reliable ? There's thousands of flyers using both with little or no trouble, then there's the fiddlers who're never sorted.

Event is still on, It's a big field with plenty of room, we cut the marquee out to stop gathering in enclosed spaces, hand wash and disinfectant on site, signs reminding folk of distancing, if anyone wants a mask we'll give you one, only been advertised on here and our website.

Choice is up to each person, field is immaculate wind down the strip, looking forward to it. smiley

Hoping for Sainz of improvement this weekend...

So, was qualifying 3rd enough of an improvement? smile d

No points for it John, would have preferred last place then finishing third though. wink

Edit, he does get 5 for beating his team mate.
