Interesting that the rotor spin -up appears to be power assisted prior to taking off. Isn't that cheating?

I couldn't do that with my Atom.

Generally at our strip on Davidstow Airfield, we have dog walkers, kids on bicycles, hooligans drifting....oh, and the local police running about trying to turf them all off.

To be fair , the land agents and constabulary do a utterly brilliant job of trying to police it

It’s annoying though angry

We used to have drifters on our patch in Cyprus, a dried salt lake as you say annoying but funny when they got it wrong and hit the rough on the edge of the lake, over they went never did see anybody go help them laugh

We had some visitors "drop in" last weekend.

The (my) Wellingborough Club site is part of a large sports complex which accommodates several different sports, most of which have their own containers and/or huts to store equipment, etc.

About ten days ago, two well-known low-lifes were intercepted, three days running, as they were seen to be "checking out" the various containers on the pretext of "Looking for their horses". . The scumbags were given their marching orders but these people have no shame so they kept coming back. . They even came back late one evening (presumably, horses are easier to spot at night, eh..) but found a couple of us still on site, so we just heard them swearing before they scorched away in their truck.

Last weekend, two containers were burgled and various mowers and other pieces of equipment were stolen. angry 2

Now, I am not suggesting for one moment that these fine, upstanding, horse-lovers were responsible, but adding two-and-two together generally makes four. angry 2

I've massaged your post a little to avoid raised temperatures and potential trouble for us.

I can understand your frustration and anger but we live in different times now and I'd ask all members to rein in (see what I did there?smile) their descriptive prose - I'm sure we all know who you meant......wink 2

Thanks for everyone's cooperationthumbs up

He'll ride all over you and he never takes a day off, not even Sundays
