2010 BMFA League 1
18th April 2010
Nice sun , shame about the wind...
Just fourteen pilots turned up for the first league event of 2010. No doubt some absentees were put off by the poor wind forecast (and the alternative prospect of watching the Chinese Grand Prix while tucked up in bed).
Unfortunately the forecast was correct. There was no breeeze until after lunch, and then just one round was completed before the wind died again (which happened while I was flying - the tip of my Skorpi has the marks to prove it!).
Most of us still had some fun - there are worse places than the Wrecker to twiddle your thumbs on a sunny spring day, especially if you have a toy to play with. In fact, DLG's and electric helicopters are rapidly becoming essential kit for F3F events!
Our thanks to Andrzej, Kevin and helpers. Let's hope for better luck at the Hole of Horcum.
