Sunday 30th of July – Auckland winter

Yes it is winter down at the HAM flying field with boggey conditions making the take off & landings a bit tricky.

On Sunday Antony was down running in a new 20cc engine on his larger Aeroworks ProX 260, a RCGF, seems to run alright.

Also the club has a new trainer, an electric`Valiant’ from Steve at Firebrand.

“Brian vampire on display”

A group of Highbrook member and other notable New Zealand model flyers were at Brian Borlands funeral this afternoon  paying their respects to a fellow HAM member and one of the founders of the Roskill club. It was a great moving service / tribute. Our thoughts are with this family. Keep flying high Brian, you will be missed.

HAM Mini Scale Comp-coaching Day 29032017

Well the weather did not play its part in the HAM Mini Scale Comp-coaching Day 29032017. We did get a good turn out with Gwyn Avenell giving a talk on all thing to do with scale.  The weather then packed in so things were called off.
A thinks must go out to Gwyn and also to Arjen for organizing the event, hopefully this event can be rescheduled for later in the year.
