My son Levi & I went to join the fun on Butts Lane, Eastbourne. NE wind of what 25-30 mph, Ffffing freezing but the turnout was great! Continue reading
Yeah yeah, these 2.4Ghz radio sets are definitely the future but not yet OK? What with everyone on 2.4Ghz now, 35mhz frequency clashes are darned rare! All of our lot are living in the 35Mhz past, blissfully unaware or what the cool kids are up to! Continue reading
I wanted to get my son in radio controlled flying and after looking at a couple of other options I was eventually talked into buying a quadcopter (cheers Nick @ Soar Ahead Sailplanes) – begrudgingly, as I’m not really into helicopters, being a slope ‘purest’. After a quick look I found this on Ebay for about £40 inc. p&p. Continue reading
I took my son out for his first glider outing on Saturday.
We went to Winchelsea with bro Robus (Brobus!), the wind was a variable 10-15mph SW, barely enough but barely was enough! Continue reading
Man needs hobby…
(this is one of those “he’s cured” moments)
Once you’ve got past the whole procreation thing you need a purpose. What’s the point in going to work if you don’t enjoy yourself? So I rediscovered my hobby (after a break of a decade) & am much more happy.It’s something to focus on, obsess over, another way to ignore the pain & impending doom of MS.
I bought a Luggie Scooter a few weeks ago to enable me to get to the hills without breaking the back of the friend who pushed me up there (I have MS & really struggle with the walking / staying upright thing).
I think I’ve used it enough to share my findings to those wanting to go flying / slope soaring independently.
I fly radio controlled epp combat slope soarers (the Wildthing is my weapon of choice!) around the Hastings / Eastbourne area, at Fairlight (nice and flat maintained footpath) and Butts Lane (not maintained, grazed land, plenty of mud / poo). Continue reading
The Luggie Scooter is a folding scooter that can fit in a case (hence called Luggie = luggage)
I bought a Luggie Scooter a few weeks ago and feel I’m now ready to review it having used it a few times for different purposes and experienced their repair service (I broke the charging port!)
Note that there were no other people in the park before you start moaning H&S people!
A bit of skills flying through the obstacles, and then the pilot (my boy) joined me on my scooter for some round the park driven flying!
Amazing quick kids pick up this sort of thing, I’m sure Dad said that about me in the old days too…
