Aye it was certainly a good day, good fireworks and great flying. Next time though, hopefully somebody will remind Jamie to refuel between night flying flights

Was a shame to see that machine cut out and hit the deck.
Did not look to bad. Never found out why.. Fuel??? dear oh dear.. I bet he is anoyed with himself.

Otherwise no incidents if I remember right, other than "mad Collin" flying that Zaggie in the dark.
Or was it flying him?

It landed in other fields nearly the pits and hedges..

All good fun.

Those zagi's were very impressive. I loved those lights on them, very easy to see. I think I'm going to give that a go with my combat wing and see how it looks, I tried it with glow wires last time but the gear was too heavy. LED's look the way to go

Talking to jamie afterwards it looks like he only broke the landing gear so it doesn't sound to bad. I didn't see him drinking the glow fluid

The site worked much better once the flight line was moved round the other way, the space was a bit tight originally.

It was great fun, some super night flying heli's, I was very impressed with Andy Fell's performance.
As for the zagi's I have never flown one in daylight so mabe I need some practice, but what the hell, I was having fun and giving everyone else a laugh at the same time. One thing about em, they can take some hammer. Do you think they will let me try again at Goole???

It's tough on a builder when he sees his creation splatted again...and again....and again...and......

Death by a thousand cuts.


MKII is under way. This one involves more channels, some more electronics, some piezos, more electronics, more LEDs and more holes in the wing.
