span, with DLE35 gasser. Only a few seconds
after his maiden take off he was right into flying it
in his normal manner. Loops, rolls, prop-hangs.

with the maiden of his VQ Dornier 27, 1600mm
span with ASP 61 four stroke engine.
Mike's latest maiden is his pre-loved refurbished

regularly in order to achieve his
multirotor "Wings" as soon as possible.
IT WENT THAT WAY!
The "mad professor" Gary, demonstrates his

device for flying wings. Powered my miles of
elastic, he was as surprised as anybody
when it actually worked!

Phil and Derek have
added to the fast
growing wing squadron

tricky to launch until
trimmed, and both were
very fast once flying!
Thursday January 3rd the first club flying day of 2019 brought a fine day and a large turnout
of pilots extremely keen to get back into the air after Christmas commitments!
Mal's Bush Mule, and Derek's Stick had a mid air collision.
The Bush Mule plunged into the trees but was recovered with
minor damage apart from a broken propellor, of which one
blade had pierced the cockpit . Poor pilot!
The Stick landed safely minus one aileron!
