Jan 14th - Indoor flying at bildøyhallen (Norway)

 
It's a bigger hall than ours, but the sights and sounds very familiar to indoor flyers here in the Soo, despite being on the other side of the Atlantic! Like us, they seem quite adept at "net shots". Humourous ending. Enjoy!

Jan 7th - Hand Launch Glider - F1N Ludbreg (Croatia)

 
Hand launch gliders (HLG) predate all other forms of flying models. Here is a modern competition version, referred to nowadays as F1N. This is an example of a model built, trimmed, and flown by an expert. Many years of dedication are required to achieve this level of performance!
