Hi Ally,
Is overnight camping allowed, and if so, at what time on the Friday could someone turn up, and is Sunday also available for flying?

Count me in: H9 300X and Sebart 62" electric Edge.

cheers
Tom

Hi Tom,

There are excellent camping facilities in the caravan park in the village which is literally one or two minutes away, no camping on flying field itself.

Anybody can come and fly Fri and Sun as well to make a weekend of it if they want. The site is open all the time, every day.

Hi Ally,
That's the cobwebs blown off the 300X ready for next weekend. F3a mode to big petrol mode is about 3 flights :)
I hope you've booked the usual excellent weather.
cheers

Hi Simon,

We had a look on Wed and it was fine but a bit sort. Should be drier now with few days of dry and wind.

See you tomorrow!

We had an excellent day today at our fly in. The weather was the best it has been in ages with a light northerly breeze straight down the runway. It wasn't too cold and the rain held off apart from the odd spit later in the afternoon.

We had a good turn out from local clubs with people also travelling from Ayr and West Calder.

There was a decent mix of club models, petrol aerobats and jets. The flying was to a high standard with good jet and aerobatic / 3D flying and displays.
Simon McNeil was enjoying his day with great flights of his H9 Extras , 111 size and 60 size electric. Simon also flew his Eurosport several times with some great flights and on the money landings.
Richard Copeland gave his AD Phoenix an airing and it was soon tearing up the sky.
Murray Young flew his 50cc Pilot Extra 260 whilst dad flew his Pilot 107 Edge. Tom Laird flew his H9 Extra 300 ZDZ 90 powered and a lovely composite F3A machine. James Stewart from Ayr flew a YS powered Angel's Shadow. There were several glow and electric powered club models also with one guy from Ayr doing his SAA bronze test successfully.

As is now traditional, we stopped for bacon rolls and tea and coffee mid morning. That always goes down well!
Thanks to Murray and Richard for cooking and keeping everyone well catered for.

Here are a few static shots from the day. Some folk had great flying pics and hopefully some can get posted here.
