Well!

arrived at pole cot around 9.30 am in blazing sun and very light wind. 

Flew the Shinto wind was a little crossed and light.

then it went foggy. 

Then the wind blew more From the south. 

Then it drizzled. 

Then it rained

then the wind blew just about right - but it was hissing down. 

I went home to put some ointment on my boils.

Next ones Eva. We had Desmond over last weekend. He was a right drip. Hopefully Eva will be nothing but hot air. 

I am getting a little sick of them keep popping in over weekends. I'd be much happier to see them if they worked Monday to Friday like the rest of us.

Sorry Guys, I'm calling the comp off.

We have a decent wind and direction early in the day but with the wind swinging and giving a poor direction later .

I could live with that but;

Early in the day the liklyhood of rain is high with it dropping off later

Doh!

 

I have looked and considered running it on Sunday when the sun will be beaming down - but the wind has very low speed that may be in and out of legal.

So carry on with your Grouting...

I trust it will be ready before spring but I keep finding I need to get this n that.  Nothing to stop the Gulp emerging is there? 

I found the Rx I got for it has been put in another little plane. I'm waiting on getting brass ballast and now I find the battery supplied with it is physically too large  :(  (800mAh AAA)

I shall have to get a 400mAh 2/3 AAA from Component shop.  Also a 3.5mm jack and socket for switching/charging from RS.

.......  oh dear!!  a lot off topic, sorry.

I looked on Maplins website but could not see the socket I wanted,  RS have it and they are much nearer than Maplin  ;)
