By the lack of response not that well
Darren Swailes (main organiser) did not show up on the Saturday, and arrived late on the Sunday so the competition was delayed by a couple of hours, so some would be entrants left early (hearsay)
Who won what,
Allan Parrish got a first
John Copleston, got a second
,anyone got any photos
I saw some on another forum, but just of the Saturday, we will have to wait for the Model Helicopter World Mag

Dave, Thanks for the congratulations
We can both say we had a first at the LHC
That makes mine a full set 1st, 2nd, 3rd and a fourth, all with different models at the LHC, over 6 years
Don't forget John Copleston, he had the 1st for static scale,
I think Alan Matthews, came second (static) with his R22
The young lads name is Lee Matthews, son of Alan, certainly a name to watch after see his performance today, in fact over the whole weekend, really good to see a 9 year old in a competition, albeit he only did the set manouvers
And then he went and upset me by not going for the famous full size heli ride with Sean Brown, (owner and organiser of the LHC event) that being the prize for winning the overall event
I have some photo's but too tired to post

i did forget johns first in the static

with the 2nd i can only repeat what sean said but he does get things mixed up at times and alans r22 is a nice model

i think lee with a well set up model will do very well

Dave, Lee is moving on, he started with a little quad last year, then on to I think it is a 130, the Huey fuselage is on I think a 400, this was so he could enter the competition for the practice
I have already got a scale machine for him, but until he get's his 'A' cert, it will stay in the hanger, I have also promised him a Vario petrol acrobat to practice on, but Alan is sorting his petrol Preditor for Lee
Will be interesting to see how he progresses next time you see him at a fly-in
I know he would pass the flying part for his 'A' cert, but he must be able to answer the questions asked from the handbook I know he is reading the handbook, but his recall let's him down ( he is only 9)

Would love to get to one of these events especially seeing as I have more time now since retiring 6 months ago. I don't have an A or B cert but have been flying r/c heli's for 30 years now.

I have some nice scale machines on the go so am looking forwards to getting them finished and out there.

I'm only here coz I'm not all there !!

Would love to get to one of these events
Mark, The EYNSFORD, event is next Sunday down near London, if the weather is fair it would be a good event to attend,
After that is Brett's fly-in again nearer to you still London area, this is a 2 day event this time
Follow that with the traditional last of the season weekend at CHARMOUTH, down in Dorset, special weekend Rates at Newlands Holiday camp
The 'A' and 'B' cert are not compulsory, But it just shows the organisers that you have obtained a BFMA level of compadance
BMFA insurance, is the minimum level of entry,
Without an 'A' cert at a BMFA event (Charmouth)you will require a 'B' cert flyer to stand as your caller
It really is a safety issue more than anything else, one thing less for the organisers to worry about
So get the cobwebs dusted off and turn up, would be good to see new faces,

Won't be ready in time for those events but definitely next year. I have my Bell 222 UT to finish off first (See Pic) and then my MH6 (MD500E) is up for the next build.

BMFA Insurance is no problem as I have my own cover with them too.

Some photo's
Just a couple of photo's although the cameras were popping for the 2 days
This was a pretty little Breitling

Dave Payne's Bell47, the first to take off from the ARK (it is that old)

Sean Browns full size, a ride in this machine is the prize for coming first overall in the LHC Cup

Charmouth
Traditionally Charmouth has been the last National Open Meet of the season
Last year at this time at one point there were 10mm hail laying on the ground,
This time we could not have asked for better weather, Saturday warm low wind, Sunday so hot, and Sunny, I came home with a top up tan
Attendances were down on previous years, there was a big Continental meet in Switzerland,
On Saturday at lunchtime 55 transmitters had been booked in, so not that quiet
Sunday slightly more pilots, but the scale fraternity had more flight stations, this ment there was always some scale in the air
I took just a few photo's so if any body wants to post please do, there were a lot of video cameras both days, any footage will be appreciated
This Quad is the smallest I have seen

Misinformed as usual.

1. I was there both days
2. I was not late on Sunday, there were no delays

It went very well and a usually wonderful group of modellers had a fabulous and friendly time
He who dies with the most toys is the winner!

I was there both days
That was 8 weeks ago, by now you should have a list of winners, or is that another secret
We have not seen you at many of the fly-in's, I suppose you have other priorities now, must be difficult getting baby sitters these days, like me and my driver

Gee's Robertson you really are an absolute scumbag, the lowest of low.

I don't recall seeing you at all the flyins this year, but then of course thats because your not welcome at them, but you choose to use the excuse of not having a driver, even though by your own admission "he's at my beck and call".

Why you choose to use this forum and emails as a way of bullying people who are having personal problems in there lives completely baffles me. What this has to do with model helicopters I do not know, this isn't the first time this has happened.

This post is by no means in Darren's defence as I know he is big enough and wise enough to look after himself, but probably has better things to turn his time to than bother with your crap, for God's sake man grow up !

Nick, So what has it to do with you, until you know all the answers, zip it
Now he has entered the real world, he needs to go back and read some of his own post,
He was warned, now they have come to bite him in the ass
