Basil's new Ava E. It drew many admiring glances. And when it flew all were impressed.

Here's a clip of its first launch, Francois doing the honours.

Model helicopters are works of miniature engineering art.

Here's Gerald's Cabrinha, now with a four cell battery.

I lost my glider at the field today. I'd just come off the top of a bungee launch when I was dazzled by the sun and lost sight of it. I never saw it again. It was at about 50 M over the car park heading East into the wind.

With the help of several other JOMAC members, and many thanks to them all, I searched all around, but no luck.

If you came across a 2,5 M glider, with a V tail and yellow and black wings, give me a shout. It may be mine.

Jon does not like ARTF aircraft. Someone once said, (I think it was Andrew), that he even dislikes ARTF tea. He prefers to brew up at the flying field.
