Thermal A –  2 February 2017

Nice flying conditions out at the club here today. Hot and steamy. 

We flew club ALES with 8 entries then 3 of us carried on and flew Thermal A.

There was much debate about winch direction so we put out 2 in opposite directions. Keith got it right. Pete flew first with his Maxa as he needed to get away. Keith had his model flutter an aileron and break a servo arm so DNFed. That left me flying my very old home made Alchemist; a bit heavy but tough and reliable. I can’t seem to land it though.

Lets hope we get more flying days like this one.

ALES – 13 November 2016

Intermitant rain showers did not deter the hardy ALES flyes with some rounds flown with the rain falling around us. Good lift was evident at the front of the rain bands with many making use of this phenomenon.

Heavy rain on Saturday created puddles in the landing area with Keith Belworthy unlucky to land in one of them.

Peter Williams flew consistently with his home built electric Supra for the contest win.

NDC F3K – 13 October 2016

The weather here this long weekend has been fantastic which in Wellington means it wasn’t blowing a gale.
Pete G had a really good day with his recently built Snipe and started as he meant to continue with back to back 4 minute flights in the first round to Max. He Maxed the ladder next and did well in the next two round as well finishing up with 2067 which is actually a new National Record. Well done Pete.
Keith and I were left a long way back but then Keith’s job was extra tough with an aileron drive failed and the aileron taped up. I flew my old Stobel V3 that started life with Joe W I think but every one else has owned it since. No excuses though, the glider is still better than me.

Vintage Open Texaco – 16 October 2016

Hi Des, I flew ALES 123 in conjunction with club ALES today then Ian Munro and I took a shot at Vintage Open Texaco.

The gliding went well with some handy lift about. Open Tex is always really tough. The small tank means you have to go high then look for lift on the long glide out to the 15 minute target. I know I lost sight of the Lancer a number of times at altitude and needed cloud background to see it properly. It was seriously high. Still not enough for 15 minutes though.

ALES – 16 October 2016

We had good flying conditions today with a brisk and chilly nor’easter turning nor west during the course of the morning.

A close fought contest at the top of the table saw Allan just taking the overall win from Warren in second place. Keith rounded out the podium with a well deserved third placing.  This was a very commendable performance from Allan as his first three rounds were flown off a 123 metre motor run as he was simultaneously entering the NDC ALES 123 comp too!!

Thanks to Stephen for assisting with timing duties today.
