This Sunday is a Fly day, will this be the last time we will ever fly off the Drag strip, every sad, I have enjoyed the tar runway but not the Armco, the facility has been good for our club, but now time to move on, I guess.

It's not the distance that puts us off Dando, it's needing to use the snow-plow on the strip before every flyng day that's the problem...


Check out the new video in the Recent Video's section... Looks cool, but I don't think that they're RC models... definitely not foamies anyway...

Sorry Pete, we are running a Bunnings BBQ on Saturday to raise money for the bus fare to Stanthorpe, no seriously we need to raise funds for the club as the new airfield requires a lot of work to get up to flying stage.

These are a list of prices John Peric has sent me for anyone interested in having a go with silk or similar cloth. The prices are per litre. I will be getting some probably in April when it co incides with John flying near Amberley.

Butyrate silver $30

Butyrate clear $18

Nitrate clear tautening $18

Butyrate thinner $9 (with 10% retarder) thinner in the dopes evapourate quickly and you will need to top up to maintain consistency. Wash brushes in acetone. Use acetone as a thinner for the nitrate dope.

Question. The new model I bought has JST connectors on the ESC and battery. Does anyone have an old female JST plug they want to part with. I need to make up a patch lead for my charger so I can charge the batteries. Cheers

Bring a lead on Sunday Grumpy. I have ends and a tool for crimping on new ends, if that's easier than finding a female plug and soldering it on.
