david
closest one of any use is about a 60mile round trip and then you'd probably get nicked for flying off of that.
unfortunately andy we both live in an area where the locals can kick up a hell of a fuss if you're in the wrong field on the wrong day.let alone flying something out there!!!!

I agree with Andy - I was up the slope at 9am on New Years day - 30mph sure blows out the hangover! Strangely enough though, I was the only 'fool on the hill'!

Dave, I presume the boats and paddles are out at Headcorn right now?

They were at Redhill when we tried to fly my review Knight Sport 50 for RW last week too.

Perhaps we should ask our respective employers to let us emigrate and put ogether our magazines from - say - the Caribbean? (All in the line of duty, you understand...)

LOL

At least in the Carribean, when we write that old cliche "it was blowing a hoolie", during the hurricane season it probably would be!
