Anyone know what the field’s like at the moment? Pretty heavy rain a few days ago. Wondering how soggy it is.

So Sydney is in lockdown for the next 2 weeks. Maybe see you guys sometime after that. Work on those planes at home in the mean time.

Ah well, flying will have to wait until another weekend for me. If it's not extreme heat, it's flooding and rain!

I piked out. Looked windier than I expected. I hope those who went down had fun.

Looks like it’s going to be very windy tomorrow. Sunday will be the better day - wind up to around 25kph. I’ll probably be down Sunday morning.

Yeah. Can’t unlock first gate but second is open. You can drive around the first gate, just be careful, some obstacles to go around. Keep left against the big log and watch the plumbing to your right...

Although forecast says 40 k/hr wind around midday. Sunday is supposed to be a bit calmer. I might come down Sunday morning.

I’d better charge some batteries. Was thinking Sunday the better weather day. But tomorrow now looks ok too. Will probably pop down mid morning.

Home from work at 2am, so might have a sleep in Saturday morning but plan to come down maybe around lunchtime.

...and yet, I’m looking out my back door this morning, the sun is shining and not a breath of wind! Just to tease us I think. I’m sure the field is saturated and there is meant to be wind and rain on...

I suspect flying not likely again this weekend. Maybe some building or repairs at home.

Hmm, I’m free tomorrow but looks like a fair bit of rain over the weekend. Will make a judgement in the morning and charge batteries then if I make the go decision.

Actually could be my fault (the rain). I've taken the coming week off and generally it rains when I do that. We can at least share the blame Kieran.

Hmm... pretty windy tomorrow. Sunday not as bad but still not good.
3,015,611
It’s going to be pretty windy Saturday & Sunday. Will give flying a miss this weekend.
3,015,611
I'll be down maybe around 10 (after a sleepin!)
3,015,611
I'll be down before 10. Weather looks good.

Damn... trying not to spend money, but too much of a bargain. Plus many of the blade parts are interchangeable with my 450x. (I also have an unfinished HK450). So I'll take it thanks Simon. Will c...

Weather forecast is a bit iffy. Some wind and possible showers. I'll make a judgement call in the morning and come down if the weather's agreeable.
3,015,611
I’ll be heading down after 9am or so.

Hmm, maybe what happened to my 540T on Saturday when I lost control and pulverised the front end (again). Not fixable this time. Brownout makes sense - 60A Plush ESC in mine has only 3A BEC, and 4 dig...

Pretty windy the next few days.

They finally realized that I'm on annual leave (3rd week out of three). More often than not it rains when I take a week off. Maybe they only allocate a weeks rain for me and saved it for the end.

A few of us have been down at the field mid week as well. Met Pete & Ron on Tuesday for a few hours of flying (& mugs of tea). I also went down Thurs for another few hours (on leave at the moment), an...

It didn't help that the weather forecast for last Fri & Sat was for heavy rain - expected the field to be washed out, so made other plans. Should learn by now not to trust forecasts too much.

I've got this plane although mine is in need of repairs due to a mishap. It's a great plane. I have a SK3 800kv 500W motor in mine which runs on 3 or 4s and has plenty of power. I also got my plane on...

Probably a bit late to head down now ? Ah well, maybe next week.

I verbally said I was coming last weekend but forgot to post here. I'll try not to eat much (if allowed at all!) ?

I'm also doing Sunday. Wind 20-25k. Tomorrow's forecast is 30-45k wind.

The guys mowed a couple of days ago, so they must have braved the heat. Damn hot now, even after midnight, still over 30 deg in Cherrybrook. Going to sleep on the couch with air con. Bedroom aircon is...

Stopped by the field around 5pm, lots of water on the runways. Sorry, took some good photos but couldn't work out how to attach them. Except for pools of water at the bottom of the driveway, the gro...

I will come (just me), but I suspect that it will be washed out - fair bit of rain next couple of days, although less rain forecast for Saturday. I guess we'll see. P.S. Hi Andre, havent run into you...

Have fun guys, both days look good. I've got a pretty busy weekend. If I can find time I'll pop down. Also, If you find you have an extra set of gum boots in the flight box, they'll be mine. I lent...

Sunday is looking to be the better flying day. Good weather and light winds. Saturday is fine weather but 20-30k wind.

Just thinking the same thing Andre (decent weather), hasn't been that much rain but seems to be windy all the time. Haven't had a decent day at the field in ages. Popped down last weekend but 2 flight...

I'll take the Skyfun please Jason. They are fun and mine isn't in the best shape at the moment. Could catch up with you on Saturday for bush care, although weather forecast looks bleak.

Medium chance of showers both days and moderate winds across the weekend, slightly more wind on Sunday.

Rain and wind forecast for the weekend... Sigh... haven't been flying for ages.
3,015,611
Yes, watching the trees here in Cherrybrook - definitely too windy for reasonable flying enjoyment. Haven't been down to the field in weeks, for various reasons, weather included (mainly wind). Just l...

Good to hear you're keen and look forward to seeing you down at the field. I always refer RC Heli flying as a love/hate relationship. Depends on your state of mind, tiredness etc, as to your flying ...

Hopefully another member is opening up this morning. Sorry for late notice, I've slept in (up too late), will be down a bit later - 10ish.

Must have been a top day at the field. Tomorrow's forecast is also ideal - Sunny & light winds & 27deg max. I expect to arrive at the field around 9am (oncall for work - if can't make it will post...
