Sunday 29th October 2017

Well the field has been rolled for the summer and the ground is slowly drying out.
Chris had his new Hanger 9 90″ Carbon Cub out for a engine run in, very nice. It was a bit windy for it’s maiden, maybe next weekend.

Saturday 7th Oct. HAM members visit to Airsail

On Saturday Antony & Malcolm visited Airsail for a fly and a catch up with John.
The day had a strong northeastly blowing across the strip.
And there were a couple of mishaps.
Antony’s large 20cc Extra had an elevator servo horn let go/come loose on its second flight of the day (possibly to do with all the vibration thru the model).
So it came down some 600m out and broke the nose off (got to have a ride on the farm quadbike).

Sunday the 18 of Sept. 2017

Well the weather hasn’t turn yet with the HAM runway still boggy making the take off runs very long and the landing tricky.

There were a few people out running in new engines.
A Lochheed Sirius with a DLE 60 twin & Antony has put a 91 APS four stroke in his Porter.

Saturday 26th August 2017 – Is winter over yet?

Well Malcolm was finally able to get the John Deere onto the field after a month & half of wet weather. Bring on the spring.

Antony had his 260 twins down for a fly. Which is best electric or petrol?

Also, the upcoming events page has been update.
Something to note is the Scale Comp coming up down at Matamata on the 14th of October. There was a good HAM member turn at this event in April.
