mine is likely to be at my parents house. I will pick it up over the weekend.

Hopefully the wind will be kind but odds are its will be blowing a gale directly in our faces...like every year! If its deemed too windy to fly safely we should have a plan B, and if possible have plan A set so we can fly a bit closer together and put on a bit more of a show

On a different note I think that we should be allowed to fly standing by the runway rather than being herded back into a line way off. I found this unexpected, difficult and unnecessary last year particularly with my Spit. I noted that the star solo performers were not expected to do this. Also, why should we fly from right up one end of the field? If they want to do the same this year I shall take it up with the flightline director.

What was your motor doing after the replacement parts were fitted Pete? Same as before?

Flew my new Spit. again yesterday with lots more church roof up front and it is much better but a leg refused to come down. New servos for the retracts bought today but time for me is running out so may just take the old one.

You’re right about the position last year...not good. I thought that moving down towards the end of the runway ( towards the bring and buy) would be good. The poor old people down that end hardly got a look in, in my view.

I lapped all the carb surfaces. New carb parts. It became a paperweight. Just bought a dle 30

we normally have to go where we are told. I would like to fly closer to the runway edge myself but we get what we are given in many respects.

My plan A would essentially be a follow the leader job with aircraft 5-10 seconds apart flying at the speed of the slowest model so we dont end up trying to overtake. Circuits would be at no more than 20 feet. This leaves the space above for aerobatics and we can take it in turns to pop up on the downwind, do our thing, then drop back into the gap we left in the line on the next downwind. meanwhile whoever is next to show off their tricks starts climbing.

A great deal depends on the weather, but that should not be difficult to manage.
