    World Cup

    I enjoyed the video coverage of this comp, particularly with the excellent commentary from Lana. From the videos, the comp looked to be well run with lots of helpers from the local community. Well done to all involved. The low starts attempted and often capitalised upon were something of a revelation to this newbie to F5J, I may even come down from my usual 140m+ start height in future comps...

    Frsky Taranis X9D Pluse special edition/T9hobbysport

    You raised some good points there EssexBOF, thanks. I see what you mean about the prices of the Jeti receivers... I saved up for a MPX 3030 back in the day (must be about 20 years ago)...Bought it new along with a pretty high tech F3B 3m glider (forgot the name)...Got married not long after purchase and ended up selling both to raise funds for other priorities...Never even got to use them... I am happy to say I am now single, so things are looking up (no disrespect ment to my X) If I had the spare cash I think I would go for the Jeti D12 as it seems to tick all the boxes for me (lightweight, quality build, solid software and the coolest of designs).

    Thanks Stu Yeas, it was certainly an "excellent & rewarding" comp for me. I think I say this after every comp but I really enjoyed it and I really liked the challenge of the "all blow, no go" aspect of the slope. Its easy to fly on slopes that produce massive amounts of lift, this was a completely different challenge. But is still gave a number of sub 40's so there is a bit of go in it, haha. I will definitely be back again for more. Brett

    Frsky Taranis X9D Pluse special edition/T9hobbysport

    Don't know if I missed something but the original Taranis/Plus uses a plastic case in the form of an old JR design. I have used a Taranis X9D for 4 years now and apart from a problem with the stick units has been faultless. I did upgrade to a Horus but like previous comment , I find it to heavy without a harness, flying Mode 1. Flew MPX 3030 for over 20 years which was great gear, but the electric powered glider innovation, needed a slider switch on the side to operate the motor when launching, which I could not find a way of fitting to the 3030. Most of my fellow flyers use Jeti, but cannot justify the outlay at my age now. You have to withstand the all the comments of flying an expensive model with gear that costs a tenth of the price. Another plus is receivers for approx £25 each as opposed to Jeti ones at 4 times that amount
