Derek has replaced his recently deceased
Phoenix MXs with a new HK Goldwing MXSR70,
with electric power. Turnigy Aero 5055 600kv
on 5s battery. The colour may be a bit garish,
but the maiden performance was impressive
after 1" increase in prop size. Good power, and
Dave found the maiden of his new Black Horse
Speedair, 1600mm span, with G46 a bit too exciting
for his liking! But several adjustments of aileron and
elevator trim soon resulted in a huge improvement of
its handling. So much so that he is now really
enjoying the high performance of his new machine!
Chris invested a whole $70 in an HK Hawk kit to utilise
70mm EDF and all the electrics from a written off HK
The maiden performance amazed all including Chris!
Easy take off, predictable handing, and a reasonable
turn of speed.
He is so pleased with it, he has now even put on its
Keith was shocked at the maiden flight of his tiny nitro
900mm span, with an ASP 25 engine gave it amazing speed,
and extremely touchy handling until Keith managed to exert
enough control for a successful landing.
Flap throws were then reduced to almost half, resulting in a
much more predictable and enjoyable aerobatic second flight.
BAILEY GOES GOLD!
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 Spitfire.
Now he has 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!
Bailey is awarded his Gold Wings by his tutor Dennis
Brian P appreciates a good flyer!
So he is delighted with the performance of
this Wot 4 that now shares a hangar with
his Wot Trainer. (and a large assortment of
classic style models)
Rob now has a very neat EFlite P3 Revolution
in his squadron. Almost immediately he was
carving up the sky with his normal
exhuberance! Will be even better with a higher
capacity battery to enable longer flights!
Dennis was over the moon at the maiden of his
superb large scale Pilatus with G180 electric.
Another great big pussycat!
David B dug an AFR HK Spacewalker out of his
stack of unbuilt kits to put it together with a new
NGH 9cc gasser.
Unlike most Spacewalkers, it goes like frantic
dingbat in typical Dave style!
Peter M has also maidened a very nice
Spacewalker, with some very niced added
scale details. Powered by G46 on 5s. It
required some trimming but then quickly
settled down to become a good flyer.
