Presenter Samples RC Aero

Philip Webster

Following on from Phil Coupe's suggestion to Radio Wimborne presenter Philip Webster to come to Cashmoor and have a trial flight, this offer was taken up more quickly than initially thought and hasty arrangements on a suitable date were put together.

Version 2.0.1. The latest version on the admin side is clean and tidy as per the Website's admin panel.  Simplicity the key and logical layouts.
