I was absolutely astounded at how well that survived, a real testament to your design Tim!

Did I hear you say after the re-maiden - "still flies better than mine" sad

Cheers

Tim,

I have looked at my footage and I just couldn't keep up with your models! ok into wind but as soon as you turned down wind I couldn't catch up!

I almost captured Tim's first release but as I zoomed in it went out of focussad, the cloud cover didnt help (poor excuse I knowembarrassed)

Didnt realise Chris's Matty had two power plants? only saw it as an electric! by the time he had won his prize it had been put awaysad

The large TomBoy caught my eye and the young lad with the tri plane, what a cracking pilot.

How many crashes were there? I saw 3, one was a foamy jet that lost its wing on a down wind leg on the saturday.

Hi. great video that captured the weekend Richard, really peeved that I'm hospitalised and couldn't get there. It Looks like my Javahawk would have handled the conditions too.

Tim, I'm glad to hear the Clean Sweep was soon repaired. Cartwheels often are fairly terminal events. Such a pretty model static or flying.

Timbo Mackey Tim....or Tim Hooper ?

I'm suspecting it was me, as I was flying Jets / Grunau glider aerotow.

The Diesel Matty flight was great, I wish I'd had many more hours to get some more Matty flights in. Too much to do and too many people to chat to though Rich. The day just went so fast.

So, it seems I have to fly Matty with the Diesel engine again just for a video, (well just for the sound track really) what a shame

Hi all,

First posting on this forum, thought i'd join since I won the years subscription to the magazine at the fly in and thought i'd make the most of it. Plus there have been a couple of nice comments about how I flew with the DR1 over the weekend so it seems I've made some friends already! Joking aside though it was a really great weekend and I enjoyed many good flights and met some really great people.

Matt

ps. I hope Ian doesn't mind but i've submitted one of his pictures of me and the triplane as my avatar pic.
