Hello everybody,

Well, I thought I should introduce myself. I have formerly been a member here, but I took some time out from the hobby for various reasons and recently started again in earnest.

I'm Matt, from Norfolk. Been flying RC for the last 25 years or so. I started with and mostly flew slope before I moved to Norfolk, but now fly mainly IC and a bit of Electric. I do much prefer IC I have to say, and enjoy traditional model building.

That's about it I suppose! I did post a few weeks ago but I may have out in in the wrong place, so I apologise for that if that is the case!

Cheers all,

Matt

Welcome back Matt.

Don't they do slope soaring in Norfolk ? devil

I did manage to find a cliff, but large lumps of it keep falling into the sea. Floatplanes are not a bad idea, but we're ready for sea level rise over here, the only footwear we have is wellies 🤪

There are cliffs at Happisburg (sp?) but they keep falling into the sea and there's some in Cromer. There's at least one very steep hill nr Holt because we had to use the granny ring on our tandem to climb it. So, despite what Noel Coward wrote, Norfolk isn't very flat

Welcome back from another Norfolk boy.

Not many hills around where I live either.

Welcome back Matt. Had my first slope session last week at Gunton cliffs near Corton with a friend's Talon, ok not very high but great fun and I am hooked. Norfolk is not as flat as Suffolk where I live.

Welcome back, Matt.

It's amazing how this hobby "grabs" you once you have experienced it. . . . there is no escape. devil

Have fun,

B.C.
