Oh No!! a wheel caught in a hole...
James is back in the hobby
Grumm bought this Nieuport 28 last year. This photo taken Summer 2013
Grumm has done some research, and it now sports the colour scheme of Eddie Rickenbacker

Note the posters for War Bonds
Some gentle aerobatics
Alan with his HobbyKing Vampire..
Launched by Graham
And... Safely down
Now... Here's Stuart with his first kit built plane, a Sig Kadet..
Stuart has modified it by adding ailerons, and reducing the dihedral
A new OS46LA is the power source..
We always take a pic before the flight.. (just in case..)
After the takeoff by KiwiBob, and trimming up, of both the master and the slave (thanks, Linda), Stuart has a "Stir of the sticks" watched anxiously by Veronica
You can watch a Youtube video of this momentous occasion, here..
Thanks to Mike and Linda..
A successful maiden flight and everyone is happy..
Another maiden flight of Malcolm's kit built Mystic..
Powered by a SC 1.09 2-stroke
John is the test pilot today. He has plenty of experience with his similar Phoenix (Trike U/C)
Looks good, so far..
And.. we're orf..
Flies very nicely, and very stable..
And.. safely down..
Here's Grumm's HobbyKing Yak 54
A composite fuse, and a great price.. Grumm has powered it with a .52 2-stroke
Never got off the ground today, due to rx problems...
OK.. all sorted a few days later.. looks good
Flies very nicely
And back to Mother Earth...
Now.. here we have John's Fokker D8, built from a kit designed for IC, but converted to Leccy
John has had one "less than completely successful" flight, due to the CG being too far back..
Yes.. everything working as it should..
Here we goooo..
A bit of trimming, and looks very good..
Decals, pilot and other suchlike will soon be added
Power seemed to be waning.. but could have been due to the strong wind..
Slightly bumpy, but no damage
Now.. here we have nice pair of bipes namely the Sebarts Miss Wind 50E.....
A Maiden flight by KiwiBob, assisted by Linda who has flown hers two or three times
