Bailey joined CCMAC less than four years ago at the age of ten.
As a student pilot he was extremely keen to learn from tutor Dennis and did not take
very long to achieve his Silver wings and go solo. From then he rapidly progressed to
become one of the most capable pilots in the Club, regardless of age! From the early
days he benefited from a series of planes gifted by the club's experienced pilots Soon
his collection grew rapidly to occupy a full room at his family home! The next challenge
was to start building, and he excelled by completing a superb 1800mm span electric
He then excelled yet again by being awarded his Gold wings, one of CCMAC's youngest
to achieve this level. In awarding Bailey Gold, instructor Warren commented that he
showed exceptional skills, and would be capable of doing the Club proud if he was to
consider competition as his next challenge!
Dennis was over the moon at the maiden of his
superb large scale Pilatus with G180 electric.
Another great big pussycat!

Dennis says that his new
Super Flying Models Cub J3,
2547mm span with Red Back
Racing 91 electric power is a
great big Pussy Cat!
Nice, smooth, and quiet, with
no fuss! And no mess!
Gunter loves his new
Black Horse Cub J3 ,
2380mm span, with Saito
150 four stroke nitro
Oh for the purr of a four
stroke, and the smell of
castor oil in the morning!
Also a great relaxed flyer.
Derek used Covid time to build a new 1340mm
span Seagull Challenger to replace a previously
written off favourite.
This time, no nitro, straight to electric, Turnigy SK3
4240 on 5S.
It's a goer!
Phil is extremely happy with his brand new
Hangar 9, 10cc Valiant.
Running on electric Turnigy Aero 5055 on 6S
gives it rapid performance and impressive
WELCOME TO CORNE
CCMAC is pleased to welcome new member Corne
to the Club. As an experienced flyer from the WRSC
at Belrose he has recently moved to The Entrance
and now looks forward to enjoying his flying at
Mannering Park. Initially he has been flying electric
with us to get a feel for the field, but he will very soon
be bringing some of his higher performance I.C.
Derek built this
1830mm span Super
Flying Models Falcon
Stick several months
ago with RCGF 20cc
gas, but was never
motivated to maiden it.
A decision to switch to
electric (Turnigy Air
5055 on 6s) was
followed by an
Pete V recently
maidened this renovated
1500mm span VQ Stick
with 46 two stroke nitro
It proved to be a very
Gunter was enjoying some aerobatics
with his large scale Cub and did not
notice a loose manifold until landing
when an observer noted smoke issuing
from inside the wings!
The exhaust had rotated, and burnt a
hole clean through the windscreen
singeing the pilots face!.
No worries says Gunter, I enjoy making
repairs like that!
Maurie tempted fate by declaring the
flight with his 15 year old gasser woud
be its last as he was going to retire its
tired airframe to dismantle it. No need!
The pilot misjudged the final approach
coming in THROUGH the trees rather
than over them. Oh well, job done!
Dennis has successfully maidened his birthday
present, a superb two meter span Seagull
Commanche. It is electric powered by the
components from his late lamented twinnie
CCMAC President Mike, has renovated a classic
Astro Hog, now re-covered in vivid yellow, and
Dave has gone for something out of the ordinairy
with this EPP foam "bird". Is it seagull, or an
eagle? Would you believe flys really well,
intriguing the local wild life.
Gunter is enthusiastic with his latest "Hog".
This time a biplane, built from a SIG kit.
Two stroke nitro powered, it is a nice classic
Dave B has already re-engined his nice new
SBach, this time with a Saito four stroke nitro. It
now performs to his high expectations!
Dave B also has a new Ripmax Bolero. This
one is electric powered with Turnigy 5055
motor running on 6s. This is also very high
performance plane in the Dave style!
