Anyway today we ventured out to Devizes as the wind direction was a steady westerly with the threat of the odd swing to the south of west. I took the Breta Models Tanga F3B,what a machine, I have convinced myself at least for the next couple of days anyway that this will be the glider I take to the BWLCH January 22nd. It bounces out of the corners and I am convinced it exits faster than it enters, this is nothing to do with anything I am doing it is purely the model
|TANGA F3B and a 21st century Transmitter - Rob!!|
|This resulted in a beautiful catch, like picking fruit from a tree|

Spot the Ocelot..
We also had Malcolm with his trusty Multiplex ASW27B and the ever popular Blade, nowadays sporting a newly painted blue nose cone which apparently make it 100x easier to see. Today Malcolm also became a member of the 2.4ghz club, he had bought a conversion set for the tranny and 2 receivers - 50 quid!!!.... Go on Rob, do it!!
Unfortunately Paul from the bottom of the hill was just leaving as we arrived .

It was decided at the end of the day we had all had a jolly good time, and to be honest 12 degrees centigrade and a gentle westerly in the first week of January is not to be sniffed at. Global warming anyone??
