Come along and have a fly and see what pylon is all about on Saturday afternoon Come and have a go at Racing on Sunday!!

New pilots are always welcome and there's plenty of other ways to get involved. like being a caller or doing some time keeping in the cage. or just cheering on the Lads from PRCAC

It's an entertaining day and there's allways some good flying to watch as well

Hope to see you there !!

Just came across this from another forum which may be useful to us in future..

http://earth.nullschool.net/

You can track the current system that is causing this Winter Wonderland. The near real time data and the amount of data that it processes is staggering! It does not yet zoom in to the level we need as rc pilots.

I'm down sizing my workshop so have decided to sell.

I have an AL-320G lathe brought from Hare and Forbes about 5 years ago but have never turned it on. It sits on a wooded stand I built for it.

I'm keen to sell it so was looking at accepting less than half price.

Cheers
Kevin

I just got my self a kit for one of these gizmos, It's taken a while but I finished it the other day and it seems to work nicely
I've been a CAD user at work for quite some time so I thought it might be fun to have a machine that can make some bits and pieces

Here's a look at a CAD model for a Rocket airframe I drew up a while back.

Smuzz Kindly gave me a few rocket engines last year and I thought I'd better build an airframe to try some of them out.

Here's the first attempt Hopefully it will fly OK

I think there are strong parallels between that video and the world of RC flight Smile

For me personally, every major flying milestone so far has been a repeat of that same "I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't... oh wait, now I can" experience. Sometimes the transition to "I can" happened when I was demoralized and least expecting it.

Has anyone else experienced that same feeling?
