Bill did a great job repairing his Mustang after an unfortunate hard landing a few weeks back. You can hardly tell the difference,
It turned out to be a great morning to come to the field at Manoah to get in some RC flying. Winds were calm and field conditions were pretty darn good considering that there were some soggy days in the past weeks around here.
Our normal hanger has been put under repair due to a vandalism fire that occurred back in December.
Brent brought out his scratch built Grumman Goose after performing a few repairs .
Here is some nice footage of Brent performing some test pilot flight manoeuvres.
The 2017 flying season is off to an early start at the Manoah Steve’s field. The young flyers from St. George’s were our guests on a cool but calm Sunday morning February 26, 2017.
Students from St. George’s School fabricated some very interesting aircraft
Conditions were perfect on that day for flying, even the geese stayed away! The students from St. George’s spent some long hours over the winter constructing some well designed flying models. It such a great thing when all the hard work pays off with a successful flight.
Although the field is still a little soft from the snowy days recently, the group was able to enjoy a fine day of flying. The field is open for flying electric airplanes and helicopters to RRCFC members during the weekends and after 5:00 P.M. on school days.
It was a very nice calm Saturday morning, a little cool, foggy and damp but hardly any wind, ENE at 6 Km. We had a small group show up at the field at 8 AM flying the Apprentice 15E, the Trojan T-38, Corsair F4U S and Jack also brought out his Edge 3D Sport Flyer.
It seemed to be a great day for a maiden flight of the brand new E-flite Night VisionAire.
The initial setup on the plane had way too much up elevator, it was sure great to have Jack standing by close to help trim back the elevator to a flyable state. After a few clevis adjustments we finally got her flying real fine. It is going to be a great 3D aerobatic flyer! Can’t wait to give it a try in the dark.
