Recently Wednesday

Ian is building a very large Waco biplane, they were originally radial engined, so Ian has a lovely 7 cylinder radial to be installed.
A very long time ago we saw and heard it run in a test setup.
Since then it refused to start again, so it was sent off to agents and has been returned, so let us keep everything crossed for Ian.
Yes.... that is a smile during setting up.

Looking so nonchalant, or COOL in todays vernacular, we knew it would perform.
The sound is FABULOUS.

Looking good.

Very good.

Me too.

Sunday scene

Sunday was much better wind-wise than Willy predicted, which was just as well, because a BBQ lunch was organised to be followed by an auction of "Stuff" donated by various people.
Nice weather meant a good turn-up.
Brian has been at it again.
Flies nicely.

Apprentice cruising piloted by Rob K.
Welcome back Darcy and Tony W. -  Ralph and Andy catch up.
Teddy and Tom.

The Auction.

 About one million magazines, quite a lot of infernal combustion engines, many of them new-in-box and loads of bits and pieces which we have ALL accumulated over the years.

 All in all, a friendly and successful day, which raised a very nice amount of money for the club.

Weird Wednesday

Well, weird is probably most descriptive of this model, which David aquired and has tuned up.

He has no idea of its name, only that it is completely asymmetrical.
The engines are both 4 stroke, of different capacity, swinging different size props. The wings are swept forward, of different span and take a look at the tail feathers.
It flies rather well and is quite fast, the sound is like nothing else, we think that's because of the prop overlap .......maybe.
