The weather wasn't too good, and I was feeling somewhat lazy, so what do you do? Well I read through the forums. A discovery that is invaluable was made, thanks to you good people.

I had never thought of it, but now I'm completely hooked! Bench flying!,, I'll try it I thought, it's completely addictive. In the space of an hour or two, I had flown nearly all of my planes. It was so uplifting. I did loops, knife edges, prop hanging and all manner of aerobatics. The sky, well ceiling was the limit, and amazingly, for me, I never crashed once! ( nearly took a wing tip off on the standard lamp, lucky I pulled up just in time )

Need a bit of advice though. Is it ok to run around the house from room to room, or even garden, with the model held high overhead making engine and gun noises? Should the house have no other occupants?

Your advice greatfully received.

Not unless you want a visit from men in white coats.

They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha
They're coming to take me away, Ho-ho
Hee-hee-haa-haa
To the flying field
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those
Nice young men in their clean white coats and
They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!

Glynn WARNING!!!!

Around one room - OK. But on no account go from room to room. The last time I did that as I chased an imaginary Messerschmitt I left the wings behind as I shot through a doorway. You have been warned.

BEB

PS Just humouring him chaps - God I hope the weather improves soon!

Ah cmon boys, I was even thinking of a club where could go to each other's houses with a couple of models to fly from a different bench. Sounds great for a winters day don't you agree?

It's great fun and surprisingly easy with a suitably lit model - but a timely warning...try to avoid flying a dimly lit model on bonfire night after the bonfire. You don't see the smoke until the model disappears into it. Flying by sound is not the easiest way...

Don't ask how I know!

Getting back to the spirit of the thread, you do realise that night flying is easy to simulate, either at the field or at home on the simulator. Simply place a stout brown paper bag over your head - or on the simulator, hit the monitor power switch.

You can even do night bench flying with the aid of a light switch...

It's probably better if you do it when no-one else is around - they just won't understand the subtle nuances of model fondling.
