I took my son to Wyntercon at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne today. I hadn’t looked at their website so didn’t know what to expect, I’d heard a lot of great things about it & decided to just turn up and see what happens. Continue reading
It occurred to me that I haven’t reviewed ‘old faithful’ – my folding walking stick. For starters, it’s called a Kensington Switch Stick (link goes to the search page eBay), these come in a variety of colours with an optional strap – which I didn’t go for myself as I figured I’d switch hands regularly (which I do as it turns out!).

I bought this unbranded (Q5?) mini camera a couple of weeks back for a spot of aerial photography and have taken it out a couple of times now so think it’s time for a quick review. Continue reading

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!)
