Traditionally our quietest launch month for the year, this January was no exception with a small turnout of passionate members managing 23 flights, an improvement of 3 on this time last year.
Windy conditions led to a predominately low powered day with impulse ranges being 1xA, 2xB, 11xC, 2xD, 2xF, 2xG, 2xH and 1xI. It was also quite warm with the temperature peaking at 38’C and complimentary bottled water was supplied for attendees.
Some notable launches include Stuart’s “Nerf” flying on a G76 to 2000ft. Jim launched his “Katana 2” on an I566 to 3500ft with a picture-perfect dual deploy flight, landing within 100 metres of the pad. Simon flew his unique looking “Red Rock” to 570ft on a D15 and Matthew launched his awesome looking “Magnum” on a C6-5 to 1000ft.
