Well we had a good day at the slope today at Skinningrove a couple of great gliders got chucked off the slope daves big ASK8 and johns discus both flew great [img][/img]
harvey struggling to lift the big bugger Laughing

I flew my thrush which was great fun until i decided to watch pauls blizard big mistake as i lost total sight of it affraid anyway after an hour and a big effort by everyone Big thanks, I,d just about given up when harvey gave me a call to say an old guy had found it thew i will learn. clown




johns discus 2-5mtr another good flyer maybe it would have benefitted from a bit more lift as paul had to make Impromptu Landing
well done m8 Smile

Hi Phil,
Many thanks for the video and for you putting this up on our site and for the video link.
I think you will all agree we had a great time, and for me the bonus was you getting your model back, that will teach you to fly Paul L's plane when your supposed to be flying your own Very Happy
I really liked your video of the K8 many thanks for that, and yes she did fly well, cheers mate. I know your bum twitched when you flew her, but honestly mate just relax with her and she flys her self. I really hope you enjoyed the experience of a 1/4 scale glider.

Big thanks to Dave for letting me re-maiden it

Glad you got the Thrush back Phil.
