full circle flying

  It’s been a heck of a 2 years but to show that things go full circle I’m back on Whitesheet hill in light air with a Merlin and an SOR and a big old grin.  Flying has been sparse since returning to the UK but it’s still a joy to fly good models in a beautify place- wherever that is in the world.  My return to the slopes with an SOR was delayed by my dropping my TX- you can take it all around the world safely but drop the dam thing in the garage!  Thanks to Mike Ridley, top service as always.

  I’ve been contacted by a couple of old friends with some pictures.  Milan Janek’s leaner Wizard compact fuselage looks really nice- you know that it’s going to be built to a great standard- I remember something about the first Compact fuselages being really slim.

  The Willow builder Zhou has sent me some building pictures to wet my appetite, I always like to see building pictures!  The Merlin I’ve been flying on my travels  proved itself to be a bullet proof top performer, which has flown in so many places and conditions that gives you a real trust and confidence in your model.
