Well- we tried!

  The weather forecast had suggested that we would just escape the worst of the British spring and race the champion of champions this weekend.  but with snow, Baltic winds and sub zero temperatures it just wasn’t to be.  Thanks to AJ and all those who helped organise the race weekend.
  The enthusiasm of the racers to even get to Wales in such conditions shows haw well established and regarded the race is.  I’ll start looking for some free weekends in the calendar to try again but it’s a busy old summer!

Traplet Support the Champion on Champions race

Those lovely people at Traplet are supporting this years Champion of Champions race, ensuring that there will be a little something for each pilot.

  Best get your entries in if you have  qualified already!

What an amaizing day!

After coming away from the Crest 2 weeks ago thinking that I was lucky enough to have been at a race that probably wouldn't be repeated for a few years, the race this weekend delivered record time after record time.  Conditions were'bigger' and tougher to even be on the hill.  Although I have to say I didn't fly it as well as 2 weeks ago Frank and the other Willow pilots demonstraighted just how fast they can go.  The willow could certainly handle the air better than I could.

Congratulations have to go the the sub 30 club pilots and especially to Martin for his 26second flight.  Just 2 hundredths of a second outside the record- thats about 6 inches at the speeds he was flying.

2 weeks to get ready for the champion of champions race- get your entries in- I will start to update the entry list this week.

The Trophy's coming on!

With a huge thasnk you to Adam for his help and the picture curtesy of Frank the Champion of Champions trophy is here!

3 weeks to the final!

airtronics servos and arms

Air tronics servos
  I’ve received my latest batch of airtronics servos.  They’re certainly my choice for the Willow wings.  I also have some spare carbon servo arms with this shipment.  As with most things you don’t need lots of these at any time so I’m selling them in pairs- £2 per pair.
  I’ll add a spare arm to each servo whilst I have them. So a servo plus spare arm is £40.
