Duke's got some new slope devices to test
and rounds up the ground crew

'I need one volunteer...you'll do nicely'

'Let's get this down on film......it's all
looking a bit dark though'

'Ray, keep an eye on those paragliders'

away she goes!

lost sight of him....

fossin' 'ell that was close !!



  1. Hello Paul - I am sorry to have missed you guys up at the hill yesterday. Philip and I were chasing the setting sun to get up to Detling before the light failed. You guys were making a chilly retreat while we geared up with the prospect of early night flying! Hope you had a good session. Good to see Duke has been busy in his shed creating some more designs. We managed a couple of flights each under electric power and a couple of nice landings to prove we had not lost the 'gift' before turning home. cheers to all!

  2. Oh crikey Steve, sorry we missed you, I would have held on if I'd known.

    Never mind, the weather is slowly improving and the evenings are strating to draw out again, hope to see you both soon
