Sticky: Flying this Week/Weekend 2022...

It's wet.
I had one fly over the field (or water) of my small FRsky g-rx6 receiver with a XM+ attached as a satellite. No problems at all. Then the rain started again.

Field is still closed due to Wednesdays rain.
Some of us had a look today and its not much better than the above pictures and the grass is much longer. No mowing of the strip was done.
Will keep you updated.

Have you decided on a venue & time for the AGM. I might bring some more donation planes.

With no more rain forecast for Parramatta I'm hoping we can walk in to Mccoy and have some flying before and after the AGM.
The AGM is at 11am. The agenda is -
-Presidents report
-Treasures report
-Election of new committee
-Safety talk by our club flying instructor Jason Vanajek

Many will be glad to see you again Wayne. With the planes and gear you are donating we were thinking of selling some of it to members and then using the money to buy fire extinguishers and first aid kits to be kept in members cars. The PA ultimate you left me has got to be at least $300. I'll bring it along.

The AGM is tomorrow July 16 at 11am. Due to the condition of the lower drive way in it will be walk-in only. Please do not open the gate.

See you then.

Hi guys, Below is a link to some fire extinguishers Bunnings they started $19 and upwards. I think having one of them in your car is a good idea?.

We had moderate rain yesterday. I expect it to be no better than when we walked in last week. We will be having a committee meeting at 11am.

Car park and strip have been cut and its good for members to open the gate to drive in. Just be careful of holes near the bottom of the ramp.

Hello Ignacio, I don't know if anyone had contacted you about flying today, but just letting you know that we had a thunderstorm go throught Blacktown around 9am with the rain falling well into the day, so there wouldn't have been any flying today.
Hopefully, next weekend will fair much better weather.

Regards Todd

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.

Thanks for you reply Todd. I will definitely be joining next weekend Biggrin

Hi Ignacio
Good to meet up with you today. You are keen.
Hopefully we can team you up with a mode 2 member next week. You can look at some guides on setting up a trainer tx and we can fly it that way. Pete has a cable.

Thank you so much for your warm welcome! It felt pretty good to find such friendly and helpful folks. I'm already preparing for next weekend but I need to find a way to balance the propeller. Anyway, happy to meet you all!

Hello Jason!
I am using a Taranis x9d+ and I'm using mode 2. I look forward to seeing you there next weekend.


Btw, I found a small battery inside my fixed-wing, it is a 2s nano-tech 850mah that is not mine, I will return it next weekend.
Thanks again for helping me out, I'll try to get my quads ready as well.
