Another cracking job Brian!

Being surrounded by flat terrain only relieved by volcanoes which are covered in trees or vineyards, and so un-flyable, I'm very envious of your slope - what a wonderful view.

Thanks Stephen. Yes it is a super slope with a great view down the River Tay valley. Its the only and best Easterly slope in a 60 mile radius of where I live and only 10 minutes drive from my house. It curves round to the West where it becomes a southerly slope as well. The only problem with most Scottish hills is that they also involve a 15 to 20 minute walk, usually uphill. Hey Ho, it keeps me fit.

Thanks Roo. I lost (quite literally! ) my 2.00m electric thermal model quite recently. This was my go-to model for relaxed flying from my garden so it had to be replaced asap. A nice new semi kit from the Czech Rep. is now taking shape on the workbench and should be operational by early December. After that I have another scale job lined up - one that I have never modelled before!
Brian. :)
