Winded into submission....
Bar a few of the brave who headed to Red Hill for and early slope session on Saturday, notably Alan and Schalk, the rest of us simply cowered inside ignoring the howl of the raging South Easter beast at our doors and got on with some civilized building of this and that.
Below are a few pics of a few projects on the go, that saw a lot of attention this weekend due to the fact that mother nature took a decent Saturday and Sunday and added a great dollop of 60km/h winds. With St. James a now banned site we are unfortunately one site short for those really thumping days. Hence the building blog.
The Friday evening wind meter already off the scales. That tree is not shaped like that by fluke.
Vulcaine gets a ballast tube for 500grams of slugs to help with a bit more inertia on the outside moves
Marcel pulling a Shongolola from the molds. He will be making a V-Tail version as well off the same mold while Hans is busy with the wings so as to create a fully composite glider.
Georg acquires a new glassy for aerobatics
A nice new toy addition to the fleet. Fully composite for slope and aero towing.
Picked up this hint off the web for joining servo leads in places you are unlikely to go looking for them again, notably a long way down the boom of a scale glider. This pretty much ensures that no matter what, this joint will stay intact.
