My wife bought me a half hour flight in a Tiger Moth which I did last weekend. Had hands on flying for about 20-25 mins, such a beautiful bird to fly. I highly recommend this Company. Here are a few pics.

While we suffer in soggy fields, power lines, dirt bikes etc I thought I'd share this pic of another field.
Some of you know my mate David, from Canberra. Thought I would share this pic of their field. Fake grass, Clubrooms with toilet facilities, coffee making.....lucky bastards. I call them the "Chardonnay Flyers".

Hi guys,
I know it's not electric but, here it is anyway.

I'm off to Cowra this weekend for the Oily Hand Weekend, where you can fly anything from FF, CL and RC but, it MUST be powered by diesel or small unmuffled glow engines. More of a social weekend with a few low key events thrown in to bring back some nostalgia, and an excuse to build something that you normally wouldn't.

Being shamed by a couple of mates for the last couple of years for not going to Cowra, I decided it was time to go.

Each year they have a model of the meet, this years is the Hearns Hobbies Sportster. I only decided about 4 weeks ago that I would build it as it is simple enough. Although the plan states 2-2.5cc sized engine, I have a Mills 1.3 and built lite enough will provide ample power.

A bit of history, Hearns Hobbies was established in Melbourne in 1947, the Sportster was designed and kitted by them I think in the early to mid 1950's as Free Flight, or rudder only RC. The Mills 1.3 was built between 1946-1964. My model and others I've seen so far will be rudder/elevator control to make it more flyable.

Model specs, wingspan is 50", chord is 10". The size of a basic 40 sized trainer. My model balanced and ready to fly is 20 ounces, or 575 grams. Not that much considering the size of it.

I will post some pics of the weekend if people are interested.

Some of you might recall I bought a Spitfire from Rob. My mate David has a Club member in Canberra who loves painting planes. Here is the result of the Spitty from start to finish.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and i thought id start off with a question.
Although i am new and only at simulator stage with flying RC planes i have always liked a plane hanging on the roof in Hobbies in the hills at Castle Hill. I have asked them before and the person i asked didnt know what it was... I was wondering if anyone here did.

I have put a picture of it in an attachment to this thread.

Thanks guys,
