Flight Testing my 3D Printed Bomb Mechanism

Wildthing with Bomb Dropping MechanismFinally the wind changed to SW & I tested my radio controlled bomb dropping mechanism at our local slope in Winchelsea. I tested it using my old faithful SAS Wildthing, a model I am used to and don’t mind sacrificing in the name of foolishness (not that I was expecting anything bad to happen!?!) Continue reading

My flying buddies really are the best in the world! Continue reading
