Peter - I'm currently out of the country on holiday and back on the 13 June. If you email me jegibson1952@gmail.com I will send you my mobile number and we can arrange things that way. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Jeff

Jeff. I will be at Poulshot mid morning if you are about. Grass was cut and rolled again yesterday morning so should be no problem for your cub if you want to give it a go.

Hi Peter - That’s very kind of you to offer just let me know when it’s convenient for you. I’m happy to go to Poulshot

At half scale the new build begins, cutting timber by the end of the day.
PeterH
Jeff - I still have your trainer settings saved in my transmitter and am happy to help. I am tending to fly at Poulshot these days as the track is better and it avoids the no solo flying restrictions of Keevil.

Taube flying well now, New project underway
Steve Perry
Keevil is mown, no military activity for 2 weeks, gliding club and grass cutting.
Richard Holloway
it has now been sold
Richard Holloway
Spektrum DX9 for sale sensible offers only
Jeff Gibson
Sorry sent my last before I had finished. I have a Cub Sport aircraft and a Spektrum DX6 which is capable of connecting to a similar device thus producing a buddy system, I am free most of the time through the week and at weekends and can go to either Keevil or Poulsot. Any help would be gratefully appreciated to get me flying
Jeff Gibson
As a complete novice I am seeking the help of a member or members who would be willing to give up little of their time to get me a standard where I can fly my model aircraft solo.
Richard Holloway
why go to Keevil when we have Poulshot ?
gotha
Keevil was really quiet on Sunday, where was everyone.
Roy packer
The pup now has a name
Roy packer
Lovely day at keevil, not many here ??
Steve Perry
Keevil is mown, grass is short but clippings are deep, going to use the rake in the morning smile
Steve Perry
Does someone have some free time Mon morning to do some striming and use the small red mower, fingers crossed I should be able to get the patch usable with a second cut after a little fettling to tighten the belts on the mower. I should be there about 10am
gotha
Latest mods to Taube have improved my flying skills no end. Actually landed on the patch. Roy’s maiden flight with new Pup was excellent, the Schlundt reduction drive working well
Steve Perry
Keevil is 2/3 mown but with a very large amount of grass clipings on the patch, those who want to fly on Sunday should bring rakes !

For those not familier with notam's, they are publicly posted info via the CAA for the use of everyone, want to fly a kite above the permited height then file a notam.
Steve Perry
Currently there are 3 NOTAM's for Keevil, 21st april to 1st may about large military aircraft, same but until 3rd may about helicopters, and high power radio E band from 22 april 3 may.

Poulshot was mostly dry yesterday and certainly not too boggy. The grass has started growing and is getting a bit long if flying anything with small wheels.
Roger Sidwell
