How have i got three small pictures and one big? and how do i change it?
No idea Jamie...but if you click on it, it reverts to 'normal' size!

Another three from today...2 of Jamie's new aquisition ('my' F-117...which hasn't flown for about 8 years!) and one of 'Trapper's' F5!

Gorgeous day today, if a tad chilly. I put another four on my Velox, bringing it up to 180 flights total.

Looking fwd to a lie-in tomorrow ( because, Geoff, I don't go back 'till the 11th...did I mention that?!!).

Cheers,

Dick

A typical grey British winter's day at Wroughton. Geoff flew his F-5 with the usual aplomb, and I had the maiden flighst of my AD F-100 at long last.

I had 2 flights, I stopped when the light began to fade early due to the very thick cloud with low cloudbase. Apart from that the conditions were very nice for testing, with a steady light wind along the runway and in the direction I prefer at Wroughton.

Hey Harry, don't use big words like aplomb! I had to look up what it meant

Good to see everybody again at Wroughton, took the camera to photo Harry's new Sabre, but that was grounded so just a few pics from the Day.

Lets just say it was flown very slowly and gently.

At the debrief the pilot claimed that he had one hand on the stick, one on the throttle and the other holding down the errant canopy.

Spent the afternoon at Wroughton with Geoff and his Ultra iLightning. Bloody impressive model...ideally powered with a 160SX. Geoff said it is one of the nicest models he's ever flown...not bad, as today's were only his 2nd-4th flights on the model!

First time I've been to Wtn for ever...forgot how cold it is! A few pics...

Cheers,

Dick


Help...what do I have to do to get the page and attachments to look 'normal' size? Posted attachments as usual...what's changed?!

Dick,

there is some sort of picture sizing bug with RCU at the moment which is why your piccies are enormous. I am not sure but I think I read somewhere if you edit your post and add one piccy at a time they all get correctly sized(can anyone confirm this)..

Geoff.

LOL Dave,

Its been ready to fly for a month or so but a combination of me being poorly and rubbish weather has delayed me flying it.

If the stickers wind you up that much I might just have to put more on the model

Very nice Geoff. Does very much look like a big version of my Inspiration which I absolutely love flying these days, it even makes my landings look good!!

Dave....I reckon that large area of white on the fin is crying out for a big Futaba decal

There must be quite a few of the experienced guys flying around with 'ticking bombs'
