tossing off.....big time

Last season was all about large scale glass....looks like this year's trend
is going to be 1:1 scale vintage ships...

fe fe fe fe fe fridaaaay!

Team Turnigy in attendance...

Eric takes up the challenge of 'Man vs Glider' with a sprint
down the strip to see if he can beat a full size from Challock
on a low pass. Full size just pips him to the line as shown in this photo-finish. 

Foxy coming in for a touchdown

Charlie, a little worried it may scamper off into the bushes, shuffle steps up
to the Fox hoping it won't notice him getting closer

meanwhile Alan tests out his flap servo mounts against air resistance....

....and ground resistance

Simon's mid size ASG on finals....


and a instant, feline pounce is his favoured capture approach.

Here comes Eric.....or at least here come his ASH 26. Let's see how this
seasoned citizen of the slope prefers to immobilise his roosting aironautical

ahhh! the ASH 26 is a carnivore, so with the wisdom of age Eric takes a wide tangential
line prior to swiftly getting the muzzle on it from the rear.

a year further on....

From the archives, a day from this time last year. Can't quite remember what happened, so feel free to make up your own story line involving grown men, rubber and long stiff things.... 

a higher calibre of rubberiness


The TVSF chaps brought some nice kit along....

 pristine Ellipse

pristine Luna

Gulp DS 2 (just in-case you were wondering)

Wabbit tucked up and toasty in its survival blanket.
It didn't think much of the choppy air atop Castle Hill.

 '28 went well though

 Jim (blue overalls, wetsuit and snorkel) waits expectantly for the forecast rain,
meanwhile Eric (right) sports a fur lined willy warmer to help stave off the chill.

Happy New Year

An inauspicious start to the New Year sees the Goodwind data banks infected with a virus.

As a result, there now follows a short intermission....

It is hoped that normal service will be resumed shortly.
Failing that, volunteers will be required to help launch my PC off Beachy Head.
