Thread: RCM&E 2019 Fly-In - pics etc,,
15/09/2019 21:22:30

Just moved the post here Chris 👍

We’ve had a great weekend, many thanks to all who came, flew and chatted. It was great to meet so many forumites too.

Congratulations to Chris too for his giant Renaissance that flew so well and won the Mass Build trophy.

Piccies in the magazine report to follow of course.

Arrived yesterday afternoon to a fine National Centre and good weather. The evening was fine and calm with clear skies as people started to arrive.


Today’s forecast looks good 👍😬

Hi. Is there any restriction on using 35Mhz at the Fly-In? If no do I assume that peg on system would be in place.



I doubt there's restriction on 35MHz Peter, it would be strange if there was.

Martin - it's not compulsory but give Buckminster a call on the above number should you wish.

Jet update - I've just spoken to Manny who tells me there are still standing crops in some surrounding field so, unfortunately, it's a 'no' to turbine flying because of this. The upcoming JMA meeting will, he thinks, be fine as the fields will be clear by then.

If anyone is intending to camp then please give Buckminster a call on 0116 244 1091 to let them know. Just so they can get a handle on numbers.

An enjoyable (if exhausting smile) weekend. Thanks to all who made it what it was.

It was good to see the FPV GP racing too. It may not be everyone's cuppa but was interesting and added to the mix. I dropped down to Buckminster yesterday to watch the DLG and F3J - again, well worth seeing.

Sad news, Brian Winch - RCM&E’s wizard of oz engine guru and much loved columnist passed away last Thursday. His monthly column, which ran for several decades, will be sorely missed and I know readers will join me in extending condolences to his family and friends around the world.

Paul - Tony is there both days and intends to judge on the Sunday.

John - No, but bear in mind it's a fly-in so, depending on how busy things are, jets may not have the sky to themselves.

Chris, if you're in the UK then yes.

Contacting subscriptions direct will get you a replacement.

Robert Chamberlain, I was responding to Robert Feltham’s post above. wink

Robert, changing (or trying to) your address on this website doesn’t inform subscriptions (an outsourced function). Just email or call subscriptions with the details and your instructions:

Thanks for the kind comments all.

I'm still looking after this site of course, writing for the mag' and helping Kevin with bits and bobs. I'm sure Graham will appear in print every now and then too.

That's the name of the version sold in the USA Nicky. It's the same otherwise. Assume you're in the UK? It might be worth giving subscriptions a call if you'd like a replacement with the UK title.

Nothing has changed as far as I’m aware, glad it’s ok now though.
