Tuesday 6th November 2012 – Doughnuts

We were lucky with the weather up to a point today. We knew it was going to rain in the early afternoon, it was just a case of when. We did manage to make a fairly early start and were flying just after 10am. The rain did not start until 12-45 so we got nearly 3 hours of flying in.

Launches were good with most people getting around 1700′ to 1800′. If the rain had held off a little longer and with the slowly increasing wind I am sure we would have seen 2000′.

So it was worth opening if only for half a day, the details are below.

Total Launches……………….17
Longest Flight…………………11mins. Well done to MartinC in the K18. There were 5 people hot on his heels with 10min. each.
Average Flight time…………..8mins.
Total Flight Time……………..2hr. 26min.

Many thanks to everyone who helped get everything ready nice and early. And especially to Allan who spent a very frustrating hour sitting in a traffic jam after a car crash blocked the roads out of Bromsgrove.

See you soon, Steve P.
