Usually every week, but just the last month I've been teaching some friends to fly powered so we've been flying out at the airfield instead. Winter is for flying power, and summer for slope soarers ;) I will let you know when we go out to the cliff next.

You're also welcome to come out to the powered field too if you are interested. They have a airshow on there in a couple of weeks.

I just finished strapping a 10 CC glow jobby into an old plane that I bought at auction for $40. Might go for a jolly this arvo. :)

Ooooh.... oooohhh.... I've had the purchase approved :) I guess all that washing and housekeeping has paid off :eek:

Look for a demo on the next club run at lunch time :)

I must admit when I saw the title of the thread it left me wondering if there were any 2 dimensional model aeroplanes !

Interesting clip. Cheaper to replace if (when) they crash too, I would think.

I have all the bits now.. should have it together in the next couple of weeks.

Yes, 3d reffers to the style of flying :p

It's not control-line... it's full 4 channel remote control. It's wild fun. :)

I was flying it around in front of Bill's last night until I hit the powerlines and decided to wait until morning :o
