Jart with SMOKE!!

OK!, so we will go off the Migs just for a short post about smoke. We have been trying some methods of making our own, but have not got the formulae right yet. Bakkie imported some and we fixed it to a Jart. It looked AWESOME!!

Welcome Bretton.

We have another member, Bretton! Welcome, hope you have many hours flying with us! Bretton built his Mig to the original size Dave West designed for a 25 size glo engine. Looks great Bretton, well done!!

OoooPs Barry!

Barry had a great fly on the slope with his electric Mig untill he lost orientation for a second. He went down and hit the only guy in the bush, who was busy recovering his own plane, Shaun. Well Shaun did'nt seem to have taken the hit to bad. However Barry's Mig snapped in half!

Bakkie giving a good launch!

First stop at a cellphone tower above Patensie.

Bakkie and I went on a road trip to Patensie to look for inland slopes. We did plenty kilo's and flew less. In the end we landed up at Maitlands.
