Larry recently became a student pilot flying electrics of
his own design, But now he has maidened a brand new
WOT Trainer, 1700mm span with Turnigy 4250 motor
He is delighted with its performance.
Dennis seems really chuffed with his new EFlite
Deuces Wild electric twinnie.
He could not resist it when offered by Daryl on
his move to WA. Dennis has upped the power
to 6s, and fitted retracts.Previously a good
performer, it is now a real goer!
Arthur has successfully maidened his latest
re-incarnation of his faithful RCM trainer. Long
ago converted to a carbon fibre rod fuselage,
it now sports a nice new wing modified by
Arthur, and recovered in crystal clear photo
laminate. Powered by G46, it is a real goer.

Also note the unusual pilot!
Mark had a successful maiden with this classic Astro Hog,
originally built by Gunter, Now powered by a 90 Tiger
nitro, recued from the Casey's shop fire a few years ago,
it performed extremely well indeed!
Congratulations to another
mature age student pilot who
has now gained his Silver
wings! Des who was been
tutored by Dennis, proved to
be a very enthusiastic
learner, interspersing his
regular lessons on his
trainer with constant practice
on his Tundra foamie. All this
paid off by recently gaining
his Silver wings.
Something a bit different! Myles has maidened this elegant
new 2 meter span powered glider. Built from a an

Having now moved to the Central Coast,
he has once more taken up flying having
joined CCMAC, with both an electric
trainer, and this Sonic with 46 nitro.
Welcome to the Club Peter.
DAVE AWARDED SILVER!
About a year ago Dave started bringing
his young son Lucas to CCMAC to learn
to fly. Lucas soon gained his wings. Dave
got hooked watching, and soon joined
himself to start lessons. He progressed
almost as fast as his son; and has now
gained his own Silver wings. In our pic
Dave (right) is congratulated by Dennis.
Long time a jet turbine enthusiast, Warren recently
brought his project to the Club for taxi trials.
The engine fired promptly and the wingless aircraft set
off for several high speed runs for the length of the runway.
It both sounded, smelt, and looked extremely impressive
seemingly close to take off point even without wings!
We look forward to a flight soon.
Lee has gone even

Spacewalker originally built
by Gunter from an HK
ply/balsa kit. The maiden
was a success, after serious
attention to the engine to
avoid a further dead stick!
LEE TIES IT DOWN
Lee was absolutely determined to ensure that his new large scale
Extra 51cc did not go anywhere before the maiden flight.
The first engine test run was carried out with the plane securely tied
to a substantial gum tree!
Mike recently completed a rebuild of his very nice Black
Horse Tornado including a stylish recover in new colour
Don't tell anyone, but he also re-powered the plane from
nitro to electric G46!
Chris C also carried out a restoration of this neat little
electric SIG high winger that he scored a a recent swap
Even better, it turned out to be an excellent flyer.
Robert has now rejoined
CCMAC after a year long trip
To celebrate his return he is
completing this new Ripmax

also aquired an electric Black
Horse 4D Stick to beat up the

An ongoing long time member of the
Gosford Club, he has now also joined us

GUNTER'S FIESELER STORCH
Gunter has spent many happy hours
building a lovely Storch from a
HobbyKing 1600mm ply and balsa kit.
The scale detail is superb down to the
adjustable wing slats; and check out the
tiny screws around the windscreen!
Gunter already has another high priority
project in mind, so has decided to sell;
ready for completion with 3s Turnigy SK3
