Christians club in Canada, Soo Modellers, hold indoor meetings every Saturday during the Winter and he does an e-mail "catch-up" after each meeting. I am now on the mailing list and what follows are some items that might have particular appeal to PMFC members.

My "Bee" also made it's first flights in the gym this week - well sort of. So far, it appears to have neither stability nor control... and seems underpowered as well. Not a good start, but will be back again next week with some design changes. After several attempts, it did make a full circuit after all, and is certainly eye-catching. Some have suggested that it's actually a bumblebee - behaving in a scale manner and clearly demonstrating the well known scientific theory that bumblebees can't fly.
No... I did not dream up the "bee" on my own... and accept no responsibility whatsoever for the design! It is the product of some devious minds over in the UK - this photo courtesy of the PMFC website:

This next photo shows your worst nightmare realized... being pulled over by the Airbug police! Driving too slowly, perhaps? A special "no-prize" is being offered this week to anyone who can identify the esteemed RCMP officer involved.
Back for it's second appearance - now with Depron wings and rudder/elevator control - the "Bumble" was back... and demonstrated that it is quite capable of flight, but does not like being told what to do. Clearly, it is quite annoyed by any attempt to control it - such as moving the sticks on the transmitter.
