Things do go wrong as this sequence of images show. Shortly after the last picture I left the scene heading North at a rapid rate. The ASK18 model inverted and came down where I had been standing. Happily, just a little damage to the nose.

Due to stubborn non-compliance by the weather forecasters, tomorrow's scale fly-in is OFF... attention moves to the backup date June 2nd

(At the risk of unpopularity).

Perfect, that means I don't have to dash to Mere early and leave part way through so I can watch the F1. Even better, there’s no race on June 2nd either! Every cloud as they say!

Tomorrow's Scale Fly-In is OFF, due to the Scale Sec's dislike of getting wet...!

Does this sound familiar...? Due to non-compliant forecasts, Sunday's Scale Fly-In is OFF

Not long to wait for the backup, though...It's next Sunday the 30th

Unlucky Chris & All,

Fingers crossed next Sunday will be a 'Cracking' day.

Hopefully I'l be coming along myself with my HF 5mtr Ventus.
