Test flying the YT-LA7

Lawrence Stretton test flew his magnificent 80 inch wingspan Lavochkin LA 7 yesterday built from the YT International kit. The plane needed a 30cc engine but Lawrence went the extra mile and installed a superb Saito FG 60R3 60cc three cylinder radial petrol engine up front which sounded amazing. After running the engine for over 10 minutes on the ground and checking everything over carefully, Lawrence opened up the throttle and took off into the brisk wind. Once airborne the plane looked and sounded fantastic eating up the sky with all that power. Ten minutes later, time to land and using the flaps the plane slowed down to a walking pace and Lawrence produced the perfect touch down. Lovely plane.... and so it should be at that price. The cost.....eye watering expensive!

121 Squadron, Nuneaton ATC

Following the sad demise of their minibus, 121 Squadron, Nuneaton ATC are raising funds for a replacement vehicle. Given the connection between NAC and 121 Squadron, the club decided to donate the proceeds of the sale of a number of modelling items to the Squadron to contribute towards the replacement vehicle. A total of 160 was donated and Graham Barber gratefully received a cheque on behalf of the ATC presented to him by Chairman, Roger Price. All this would not have been possible without the efforts of David Playfair, who did a sterling job in selling the items.

As ever, Angie laid on a good spread which couldn't have been possible without the help of Nigel, Harry, and Peter Kobrin. Well done to all those who got involved and those who took the time to support the club and contribute to the evening.

SE5a Takes to the skies

On a bright day with light winds Chris Berry flew his 1/4 scale 80" span, SE5a. The model needed very little trimming and flew on rails. The aircraft is built from a DB Sport and Scale kit and construction began around 10 years ago. The model is powered by a direct drive Zenoah 38, weighs 21lbs and is fitted with twin switches and 6v NIMH receiver batteries and 4x Hitec 645mg servos. Congratulations to Chris on completing this model, very nicely done look forward to seeing this in the skies.

Powered Gilding Day Event 

What a great day up the field for the Powered Gilding day competition. Members were greeted with some superb flying and great food.
20 members turned up for this years event with 14 of those members taking up the gauntlet & flying 2 rounds with a 3rd round to determine the overall winner. 25 seconds powered run followed by up to a maximum of 6 minutes score in flying time and 10 seconds bonus for landing on the runway. 
The first round started off really well with 3 strong contenders: Andy Rowley, Ian Hammerton & Peter Kobrin all putting strong times down from the outset.
The weather was a little challenging at times causing some pilots to overshoot the runway, and others just to lose lift when only feet from the ground and arriving rather than landing. 
Round 2 saw some impressive times, but again Andy Rowley, Gordon  Brown and Ian Hammerton all shone through.

Round 3 was the fly off to determine an overall winner.

The scores on the doors were as follows:

1st place   Andy Rowley     12.20 secs
2nd place Gordon Brown    12.18 secs
3rd place  Ian Hammerton  11.30 secs

A big thank you to John Smith and Peter Kobrin for the time keeping, Angie and John Corkill for the cakes, sandwiches and sausage rolls, & also a big thank you to everyone that turned up and made it a great event.
