Job well done.

Too windy to fly....

but lots of action around the club house.

 

Note - The Helicopter Bronze wings still went ahead today and three out of three members got their wings in 15-20 knot winds. 

Thanks to Lindsay Henderson (MAAA Helicopter Instructor) for doing the assessment.

One of our club members had a misfortune (or skill) of landing his model near the top of the largest tree on the field.  The model was safely retrieved thanks to David from "Down Under Tree Stump Removals, phone 0411 667 034. There's a yellow card with this number on the clubhouse notice board.
