Dave Roger's Spitfire MKII by Hangar 9 (discontinued) fitted with inverted 120 four stroke, 15x8 prop. After some fuel problems it finally got a maiden on a wet, chilly, miserable day with low cloud in January 2018.
Jon Tappin took the maiden after "little" persuasion. After pairing his other Spitfire (unknown brand) to a spare TX it was time to give a formation flight attempt along with a small foamy Spitfire. All good fun! The Spitfire flew superbly and at half throttle just cruised along. Wished I had not sold it to him now ******** Lol
The annual Jet Day earlier was postponed due to poor weather conditions and was given the new date of September 23rd. Generally a bright blue sky but with a "breezy" crosswind howling in from the SSW. However, this time we were not to be beaten and all pilots got at least two flights in. Due to crosswind though some members decided to stay away so numbers were down a little. We had a few edf foamies of which only five flew, the classic F86 of Dave R burned out it's speed controller again, but we had the sight of two Me 163 Komets flying in formation - sort of!
Wimborne MAC member Dave Bright flies his Durafly Spitfire after sun down at our Cashmoor field. With no wind and good throttle control he got at least 8 mins flight time. The "position lights" come as standard fit. 1100 mm wing span. 3 blade prop. Split flaps. Servo-less retracts.
Sunday happened to be the final flight of Weston Park 2017. Jase says he has had a great time in the UK and hopes to come back! It was his first time at Weston Park and he was very impressed. It was a huge show with over 20,000 spectators. The event organizers did a fantastic job on this one he said. He was also honored to have received the "Best of Show" award.
