Thanks Steve.

As for flaps, I have about half the time, a rather short and steep approach called for. Depends on wind direction, but, fairly tall hedges to come in over on one runway; at 90 deg the other direction can be as flat and long as required. Clean models (like these classic pattern types) that don't slow down quickly can be "interesting" in the direction with the hedges in the way...

Had hoped to go flying today, first this year, but it's raining. Must not swear.

Have you tried "spoilerons," very good at bleeding of speed on pattern models.

Takes a little setting up, but worth the effort.

Well what to do on a nice Summers Day.

I found it to be very windy on Saturday 20mph gusting to 35mph.

So i flew my converted Bolt glider .

Then it quickly got busy.
But we all stopped to watch this large Fox fly.
