Jay's F5e comp semi scale sport jet, US Navy livery.  Not an ideal day in late November.  Light breeze down the field but grey skies and very cold.  But any dry day without a hurricane blowing will do for a few flights.

Fun Fly Foamies?

Aerial video with the Durafly Dynamic S and the Century UK MX2 at Wimborne Model Aero Club's field with a rolled grass runway. Filmed in July 2015 during a long spell of hot weather. Lot's of pilot's cars in the car park and many more models on the flight line. Advantages of electric foamies, especially if they are of decent quality is no fuss plug-in power and go. Albiet for their price sometimes you just have to junk some of the hardware for your favourite and known stuff. In saying that, some of the models from the Far East are quite good quality and well thought out.

Slope Soaring Fun Day 2010

Seems just like yesterday that over a dozen of us were at the exclusive to WMAC, Gourds Farm slope for a Club Slope Soaring Day. But in fact it was 2010! Planning ahead for a sunny day in Summer with favourable winds would appear doomed. But the Weather Gods looked down on us and granted our wish for a great fun day. Included was lots of laughter and skillful combat flying.

A Grand Day Out.  No sheep, penguins, rabbits, cheese or animations Gromit!

The following years the Slope Day Out was planned again but never came to fruition due to poor weather, good ol' English Summers!  

However, smaller "on the fly" trips out to this slope have been achieved and again great fun was had by all. Followed by a "debrief" over a beer at Compton Abbas Aerodrome Cafe.

This video was created before the cameraman had access to real camcorder.
