Here's a short write up from our 'clipped wing' event last weekend at the Lleyn peninsula...

PSSA at the Lleyn

Monday night and I'm still shattered after a fantastic weekend of non-stop PSS flying on the Great Orme - what a superb couple of days we've just enjoyed! - many thanks to everyone who attended. We flew from 8:30 am on the Saturday in good strength WSW winds. Everything flew - superb conditions with winds upto 35mph. On Sunday it was a little lighter and had moved round to the NW by midday, from there we flew on until 6pm in winds up to 18mph. As things slowly start to return to a new normal we even managed a meal on the Saturday night in town. Great social as always!

There was a huge number of new models on show and being tested for the first time, odd for this time of year - another sign of the strange late start season we find ourselves in maybe?

A full event review and photo album to follow as soon as I can edit.


In the meantime, here's a link to some photos on our FB page of maiden flight models seen over the weekend!

Fantastic pics Steve - really enjoy seeing the superb building talent on show. I was also intrigued to see the B&V 215 flying and the "triple nickle" (Arado E.555-2) hiding in the pack - hope it got some airtime.

Bit of a fan of PSSish flying wings.

Hi Daryl,

The Ar555 certainly got some airtime, I had three flights with it with the CG being adjusted backwards each time. It was built from a Chris Golds EDF plan, by Gordon Studley and looks most unusual in the sky. It is very easy to get confused as to which way it is flying!

I believe Phil Cooke might have taken a few photos of it in the air.

Yep - the AR-555 flew really nicely once the CoG was tweaked - really impressive! - some photos of it in the album Ive finished editing here

... and we hope to see you on the Orme too Chris!

May 2021 is the current 'target' date for our MB Sabre event... Covid allowing of course, we will continue to monitor and adjust as needed to ensure we get the very best from this event.
