Phoenix Model Aircraft club has over the years found it necessary to limit the number of members within the club. We are pleased to announce that this year, we can now accept applications for new members. Should you wish to see what Phoenix Model Aircraft Club (PMAC) can do for you, please use the ‘Contact PMAC’ form (Tab above) and we will be pleased to tell you more about the club and even arrange a site visit.
Grass cutting at the field starts at the end of March, because the weather has been mild the grass is growing earlier so a few of us went down today to give the strip and pitts a trim.
As you can see the field looks pretty good.
Grass cutters are Terry, Charles , Rick and Mike
Nice sunny day, temp got up to 12 c by 1pm. Charles was flying his lovely Great planes Stearman with OS 120 four stroke great flyer.
Rick was flying his Flair Harvard goes and sounds great with the RCV 58 four stroke purring away. Good turn out again even Ray turned up.
Great day at the field today.
From the top group photo, Paul Stinger 2 Great Planes, Glyns bargain from last years swap meet its a Swift and only cost £35. Tims Pulse XT 40. Charles Toledo Special doing a low pass down the strip. Anup with his Radian glider. Mike SE5A from the Flair kit. Charles beating up the strip with his Sabre EDF model. Tim again with his Pulse
With all the trouble going on at Gatwick anyone flying at our club must be aware more than ever to stay within our perimeter, and the fpv flyers must not fly unless you have a partner with you to warn you if you are getting too far away.this is a bmfa rule also.
happy flying Mike Gowland
1st what is this off?
2nd did he make it back? if so how.
Can anybody help identify this glider purchased from the last PMAC swapmeet please. Wingspan is 151inches, the servo positions have a bespoke plastic housing. The whole fuselage is built from planked balsa and so a lot of manhours have gone into making this – the builder is believed to be Pete Wilson (RIP). It has electric power provision. Ailerons/rudder/elevator. Kit or plan?
I hope someone can help identify it. Any info would be welcome and can be provided by the ‘contact PMAC form’ – link above, or add comment if a member. TIA.
