Silent flight at the BMFA AGM.


Recommended Posts

Dick Whitehead brought an F5B model and had a set of innards available for inspection,  Ozzy Osbourne brought F5J and F3J models and Mike Fantham  had an F3K model for the table.

In the picture, F1B Free- Flight Team Member Phil Ball, discusses props with Dick (on left of group).

It was a very good and informative display with (I think) 3 laptops running with rolling presentations. I wish I had brought a F3-RES to make it confusing.  :)

Thanks to all of you who made the effort to put on this display, it all helps to raise the profile of silent flight and BARCS with the BMFA

It's a Tragi 801 Cluster designed primarily for F3J competition use.

Sadly the designer/builder Heino Korvel from Estonia retired a year or so ago so they are no longer made but the are examples available on the second hand market.
