Our helicopter competition takes place tomorrow night at 7pm (30th June). Expect a very relaxed and fun event and likely carbon fibre carnage at some stage!!

The format is as per jpeg below. It’s the KISS method so should work fine.


Matthew (helping Kees’ on this one as whirrly whirrly shankboner things aren’t his area of expertise, plus he can have a chance to relax and enjoy the comp too!)

heli-invertedReminder: Tuesday evening 30th June we have a Heli competition scheduled.

Matthew has offered to run it, since yours truly is likely to be engaged elsewhere. Details are still being worked on as they say.
Location is at our own field, starting time: seven-ish?

The weather was less then perfect shall we say, but the competition was held. Given that so many have been cancelled this year due to bad weather, this in itself is worth prize.

The question is always on the mind. Luckily it’s getting easier to see the good (or bad) weather coming. I noticed Meteogroup have a longer range forecast on their website.

The forecasts can be found on this page. Select what you want to see in the top half of the page (temp for instance) and go down to the bottom half of the page and select the date/time.

For coming Saturday (the aerafunfly) it looks like this, as in good weather!

I needed to figure out what the wind-symbols mean: here’s the answer.

Better get busy to get that competition sorted!

As in flunfly with classic planes. Given that we are possibly running out of classic planes, any plane will do. But the rules might change.
