OK so it’s been a while since I’ve posted, have been out to the slopes – just haven’t quite felt inspired to write about it for a few outings. I’ve added up the inspiration from the last 4 outings and it’s enough for a writing sessions!
We headed over for a fly at Butts Brow, ’twas a light SE wind, just enough lift for good pilots like the others, not quite enough for me to fly comfortably. My SAS Wildthing needed a bit more blow, my son’s SAS Venom did well though.
Anyway the best thing was Mat with 1 T’s little free-flight conversion. Conversion what? It’s a free-flight (no radio gear ‘chucky’ type glider) converted to radio controlled using micro sized radio gear and a bit of ingenuity. It flew brilliantly, zipping around the sky like a beautiful rocket!
Apart from Mat’s glider there wasn’t much to report, apart from fishing my SAS Wildthing out of a tree (the Eastbourne lads leave a very long stick made from long sticks taped together, in the trees for such an occasion.
