This group one is of all the winners for Masters. The Pic from behind the chairs is for BC Championship for 2014.
Jerry won the contest for Masters, in Victoria this past weekend Sept 6 & 7thand for the year 2014 he won the Championship.
Pattern is consists of 5 classes (sportsman, intermediate, Advanced, Masters and FAI )..
Jerry thanked RCFCBC and the executive for our perfect field in 2013-14, with well trimmed grass and understanding pilots, when we needed to practice our sequences we usually flew alone.
The planes that we fly in pattern these days are Electric with a 10 cell 5000mah packs to run the power for the motor and ESC. Plus we have a separate 1200mah pack to run all control surfaces.
Jerry says “These planes fly straight as an arrow and are under 11lbs.”
Many of us that fly or flew R.C. started at Fry’s Corner. Instructed by someone that lay on the grass looking like he was sleeping until you got in the Sh*t and he was there like an arrow. George was always there to help. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to George & Gay, this lovely couple that dedicated many many years of their lives to helping us all learn to fly, cutting the grass and looking after Fry’s Corner and on and on. I know they are enjoying retirement and keeping busy all the time however not forgotten.
Just to let you know we still appreciate what you did for us all. Big Hugs. CJ and many of the RCers.
Dave C and Bill P. flew the Old Timers for the members last weekend. It was the slowest fly past I have ever seen. This weekend was a workday for a select few to paint 4 tables kindly provided by Don Wadella. Big thanks Don. Painting was carried out today by Bill, Iain, Rick, Collis & your truly. Nice job chaps. Flying commenced at 10.00 a.m. and then off to the pub for a laugh, lunch and a pint. as the rain started to come down pretty good. Flying entertainment was provide by Bill P test flying a rather tail heavy bipe of Waynes and Sparky put his Falcon into a spin and after 3 turns neutralized the controls. The plane continued spinning and spinning, finally coming out after applying some opposite rudder, power and down elevator. Another foot and a bag and a shovel would have been needed, lol. Dave flew his Bee Gee like it was on rails. Good time had by all. Thank you Alan Cheng for the pictures
Big thanks to the Grindrod flying club for putting on another great fun event and retrieving all the dead planes out on the lake. The weather was great with only a couple of rain events and we all seemed to have a good time. It was unfortunate that two pilots from Seachelt ending up putting there Beavers in the tree. I missed that. I hope they get well soon! Thanks again Grindrod for a fun well organized safe event.
The header shows the progress of Alan Cheng’s SE5 build.Kit from Duncan Hutson from U.K, wingspan 73″,length 53″, will have O.S.120 4 stoke for power, weight suppose to be 15lbs, let see. Looks great Alan and a lot of work. Look forward to watching your progress.
I have been to this event and it is quite fantastic. Worth the time if you are over there for a visit. It is held at Cosford and the Museum behind the model flying area is one of the best you can ever see. Enjoy. Sparks
I gather the cows have now have decided to make some holes in our field to add to the trench. Rick asked me to post a work party for May the 4th Sunday 9.00 a.m. Maybe a good idea to bring things like shovels, gloves, rakes, wheel barrows etc so we can get the field back and up and running. I am informed that top soil and other material will be on hand. Cheers Chris
