A fairly recent creation when flying is held off due to weather and stuck at home with idle fingers. Based on a JP 48 inch wing span slope soarer. Custom made fuselage to hold the ESC, flight battery and receiver. The extended nose balances out the weight of the motor. Power train is SK3 3536 1400kv, 60 amp Hobbywing ESC. Usual battery is a 4 cell 1800mah but will squeeze a 2200maH if compact.
Ferndown Fete on the Field 2019 was bigger than ever this year
Again Wimborne MAC was asked to support this annual event with static and model flying displays. With the gratefully accepted help and support from club members we had a good static display and flying displays from various types of aricraft the likes of sebart Wind 110's, Super Chipmunk, B25 Mitchell with Spitfire escort and a number of Korean War 50's MIG versus F86 Sabres EDF jet flight.
All this on the lower field meanwhile in the main arena club members had an Information Centre, Flight Simulator and more static displays. Here members of the public can use the flight sim and ask questions about our club and hobby.
