B36 Maiden Flight

B36 Maiden Flight

Today, 13 October 2018 the B36 of Ivan & Kevin Chiselett & Andrew Smallridge with help from Paul Somerville had it's maiden flight. In fact it was so good, it had two flights. Pilot's for this were Dave Law and Neil Addicott

Some issues were discovered with the motor's surging which needs resolving before it takes to the air again, but two great flights.

Canberra Scale Rally 2014 by Roly

Canberra Scale Rally by Roly

Last week (29-30th Nov) I attended the CMAC Scale rally on my way back from Sydney where I visited Toby and Liesel. The flying facilities are simply superb and a credit to the guys up there. Check out the video clip to see what I talking about. Just the starting up and taxiing to the take off point are a heap of fun. Please also note one of the myths of hard runways being demolished, "you need brakes on your model otherwise you'll never stop!"
