"Hi Hi Hi Ho" of to Slipper we go

Team Mig, the Slope Rebels and some newbie’s had a great days flying on Slipper yesterday. The wind was strong and blew straight up the slope. A real mixes of crafts were flown on the day. We had a couple of maidens and unfortunately a couple of crashes too.

So Ulrich, from Strand, Cape town, South Africa, says he is building the biggest correx, or corroplast, Mig-7 in the world. Would you like to prove him wrong? Drop us a mail if you know somebody building a Mig larger than 3000mm span!......anywhere in the world!! He is building it for the Hermanus Slope event at the end of November, Cape Town. He does not want to give too much away, that is why he has only sent one pic. Boooo Ulrich!!

BTW, we have had our forensic experts look at the pic and declare it has not been tampered with :-)

How to?

Below is before. Above is after!

How do you go from hero to DORK in 2 seconds? Lesson number one: Do not switch off the TX when you are placing the clip fom your neck strap, on the transmitter. This may damage your plane, especially if it is 800 feet high!! :-) OH well, I shall just have to build another!! Watch this space.
