Great day today. Good turnout and some exciting flying on view! Thanks to CDs JP, Mark. Pete and Graeme and Pete for buzzer duties.  Sun came out too and got a bit burnt but much better than the usual clag we've had lately!

A grand day out :)

Big thanks to JP for the good call on which slope & making the wind blow on it all day. Thanks to the centre men & buzzer supremo for keeping us moving. 

Wales - and not a single drop of rain - very odd

Phil.

What an amazing days flying, thanks to all who put it together and sat in the centre. Looking forward to seeing the final results. 

For those that are interested here is the only video (I think) from the day. Was my slowest time but as Murphys law would have it, its the only run I had recorded.

Nice video Brett, shame you didn't get your SUB 40 on camera! Great to watch your round by round improvement too.

A very enjoyable day with a decent wind on the back of the wrecker. All the better once I worked out where to land (thanks Andy!).

The drive home doesn't get any easier, needed 40 winks at Gretna but home by 2am.

Oh and smart motorways are not that smart, I much prefer the ordinary 70 (ish) mph type.

I know, when I was driving home I was thinking its such a pity I don't have that on video. After I got the 43.xx and the wind seemed to drop off when we had the break I thought that was going to be my PB. I couldn't believe it when Mark called out 39.63 (i think it was .63). 

I think it was all the encouragement from everyone as the rounds went on that helped my confidence. If anyone out there is thinking of taking up F3F, just do it. You will get loads of support from everyone, its a great sport and a great bunch of guys.

'Cracking flying' Brett, congrats on achieving a sub 40 so early on in your F3f racing :).

Thanks Grommit

Well done Joel, Mark and Peter on the podium positions. Greg was only just pipped to the post there but what an amazing display of flying you guys all put on.  

Looking forward to seeing the full round by round times and results.

Yes, the video above was my first flight. Because I had never flown there before and I was so nervous I decided to take it easy and so for the first two flights I flew it empty. After that I stuck a little over 600 grams ballast in and flew it like that for the rest of the comp. That was 8 out of 12 slugs, next time I will try with full ballast if the conditions are right.

Great start to the league. Thanks to all who came, flew, launched, buzzed and ran the event. Highlight of the day was seeing Brett go from a bag of nerves to flying his first sub 40, turning confidently and keeping on track throughout the run.

looking forward to the nationals in 2 weeks time in Scotland!

Wow that didn't take you long to break the sub 40.  Well done!
