Just saw my favourite plane OV-10-Bronco (well one of) at Motion RC https://www.motionrc.com/collections/new...1400mm-pnp

I was thinking of building one of these from balsa but now....

I hope someone in Oz brings these in.

Looks interesting...

Gravity sucks, or should I say, is the downfall of all things flying. It's the way it's controlled that makes the end memorable or not.

Hi guys, on Wednesday because of all the heavy rain we’ve had, it may be advisable to walk in only.

This weekends forecast is looking rather hot for both days, if you intend on doiong some flying, get your flying done early so as not to be out there in the heat, take extra fluids, wear sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat and happy flying.

I went to the field today for a fly I was surprised no one was there. I tried to get in with no luck. The padlock was not unlocking.
Is anyone going down tomorrow for a fly?

Cheers,

Andrew

After a phone call with Jason during the week, this Saturday 13th Feb will be Bush Care down at the field. I believe it will be held from 9-12 and also there will be a BBQ after for everyone to enjoy.

That's Right Gentlemen,

This Saturday (13/02) is our first scheduled Bushcare Workday since before Covid. We have a heap of Coral trees to get through and a new Bushcare Coordinator to get acquainted with, so I very much hope to see many of us attend to lend a hand.

As mentioned by Stephen and Todd, we have decided to slightly push the timing of our work period from the previous 08:00-11:00 to the new time of 09:00-12:00.  This should suit members a little better, allowing a slightly longer sleep-in on affected Saturdays moving forward.

Our Bushcare efforts will be followed by a BBQ starting sometime after 12:00, so the more the merrier.

Please come in suitable attire and bring as many cordless drills and ~10mm drill bits as we can muster. Our focus will be exclusively on treating as many Coral trees as we can in the allotted time.

Thank you all,

Jason B
