Quite unbelievably I’ve managed to get over to the flats three times in 7 days! I fully expect this to not continue, but while the weather is at least passable and while the family are doing other things, I’m happy to take any opportunities that come my way.
Took three models over there this evening, the Wot 4, the Mini Tyro and the Merlin, which I’d not flown over there before.
Spent a good while (most of two 15-20 min flights) with the Wotty, practising slow rolls, stall turns and landing approaches. All are showing improvement. I even managed a couple of full inverted circuits!
The Tyro still needs a bit more down thrust but other than that it flew as beautifully as ever.
Bashing the Merlin about a flat field with no wind is a bit of a different experience, it’s normally flung off the top of a big hill in a gale. Was fun though, will likely take it again in future.
