Indoor flying on Sunday and as a help for those using electric power click for a link to some information about the various commercial connectors available.

MicronWings from Australia, who get a mention in the above, also have a very useful set of tutorials showing skills and techniques for micro RC building.

Just put the above on the web when I received the latest FAI bulletin and discovered there is an "Indoor Skydiving Championship". Can we adapt this for Bushfield?


21st October
Thanks to Bryan for a reminder of the Gildings sale. Click the logo for the catalogue and details of over 500 motors....
(There are some non motor items mixed in, starting at page 5.)

The latest Aeromodeller mentions the sale and adds:- "including around 200 lots from the collection of the late Arni Ohlsson of Sweden plus a similar quantity from UK collector David Price and some from Dick Roberts, the curator of recent sales."

The club meeting at Peakirk on the previous evening (November 3rd) has Brian Lever talking about his engine collection, with many stories and technical information.


19th October
Indoor flying dates at Bushfield are now at the top of this page. For further information and location try Meetings/Events on the left.

John reminded us yesterday that:-
"This Friday is the first Peakirk clubnight of the year (Peakirk Village Hall, 7.30pm.) And it will get us off to a good start with the Stan Spencer auction. I understand that there will be a lot of models and materials to auction and, knowing our late friend Stan, they will be of very good quality. (These evenings are roughly fortnightly, remember, so that each one should be well worth attending.)"


17th October
Still plenty going on outdoors this Autumn.
Mon 23rd. October Final C/L meet of the year.
Sat 28th. October Midland Gala, Luffenham.
Sun 12th. November, Buckminster Free Flight Gala.

ClustrMaps was first set up in October 2012, in March 2015 their
system stopped working but if you click the icon you will see the
results for that two and a half year period.


I was curious about the accuracy of the free stats programs,
so started both of these on 29th May 2015 and will see if the results coincide.
