Missing Mini Jazz

Have you seen my Mini Jazz please?

Its all white profilm covered small 30 inch wingspan aerobatic plane, black canopy, carbon undercarriage, 5 mini servos, with a rare OS LA 15 engine which has a very distinctive blue finish.

Thanks in anticipation

Main Gate

Hi All Members,

Our landlord has brought to my attention, that members may be leaving the gate open, during flying times and at the end of the day.

I believe it's important that we do not upset our landlord by our actions, so I propose to remind members, that they should not pass through the gate without closing it behind them, even if they discovered it open when they arrive. Please take the responsibility to close the gate after you pass through it.

May I remind all members that the last member to leave the site is responsible for ensuring that if the gate lock is present that they should lock the gate. If the landlord doesn't require the gate to be locked, he will temporary remove the gate lock, therefore if the lock is present and you are the last to pass through the gate, the member is responsible for locking the gate.

Thank you for diligence

BMFA/CAA Consultation

I urge you all to go and read the BMFA publication dated 26th April 2019,  here

It suggests that model flying is about to get a little more expensive, looks likely that we'll be charged £16.50 per year to be registered as an owner of Remotely Piloted Vehicles and will also separately have to register and pass basic safety tests as a pilot.

We should all read the BMFA, and then follow the link to the consultation doc and have our say, and perhaps we and the BMFA can head this off, if not we'll be paying for it and I suspect it'll drive a few people away from the hobby, which may result in subsequent higher charges.

Enjoy

WWI Aircraft

Hi Folks.

I am creating a small static display for a WWI commemorative event to be held here in Welshampton on 10th November 2018. I have my Fokker EV as an example of the German forces but it would be good if there was a similar sized (6th scale) representative of the Allied forces. Has anyone got something they would be prepared to loan me for this event? It would of course be well looked after and much appreciated.
