January 11th - Grandview Public School

 
A small group this week. The highlight was Earl's micro R/C semi-scale Spitfire with monocoque "high speed" fuselage. After we increased the tailplane area a bit by taping on some card extensions, it flew surprisingly well. Click on the photo (right) for the video!

January 18th - Grandview Public School

 
Chris adapted his BoldClash BWhoop B-03 Pro quad to look like "Thunderbird 2" and learned that other aeromodellers either remember the Thunderbirds with great fondness (filmed in fabulous Supermarionation!), or have absolutely no clue regarding the origins of this famous prototype. It's an "age" thing, I guess. The model flies well, and looks very cool in the air. Yes, we know it is supposed to be green...  FAB!
 
Earls' Coke bottle semi-scale micro Spitfire was back, and flies even better with enlarged tail feathers and appropriate markings!

January 25th - Grandview Public School

 
Chris' cleverly disquised Tiny Whoop (as Thunderbird 2) and Earl's Coke bottle Spitfire
were back!
 
Chris also brought his fancy new camera, and recorded a "test video" of Peter flying his foamies. Click on Peter's "vintage" EZ-3D Trainer (left) to watch the video.

January 29th - Northern Community Centre

 
A handful of aeromodellers braved the bitter cold outdoor temperatures to enjoy two hours of indoor flying fun! Two visitors were also in attendance - to watch us fly. We need a trainer to get them started!
