Great weather, 25 degrees, overcast, no wind, for our first comp for 3
months, good POWER weather as well.
Good turnout as only speed was flown, the other comps were cancelled.
I flew my newer Nova Rossi 21 Class 5 model which finally turned the
potential it has. Noel flew his Nova as well, needs more testing? He
also flew his monoline OS 30 Class 2, but clipped ground just, and
then next flight seemed short of fuel. I flew my 2 line Nova 21 class
2 but was a bit slow today.
Andrew Nugent flew his class 1 Nova (is there anything else), but
still not going as fast and reliable as it should, got me stumped.
I then got out the old Profi FAI model, had not flown FAI for 12+?
months, did a very satisfying 12.59 / 286 kph.
With some of the fast models FAI, Class 1, I am having trouble due to
various health problems and old age. I flew my slower Nova 12, Class 1
to see if I could keep up, did 14.47 which is 6/10ths slower than the
good one. At the end of 10 laps it was getting a bit tiring, the legs
Only 2 Perky today and Noel had trouble with his so Vern wins with his
ED2.46, he also flew midge powered by a Philteck, did ok, will be
better with proper tune and Prop.
Noel had a new Vintage Proto a Keil Kraft DEMON powered by a OS 25 LA,
but had a few problems so better next comp.
Thanks again to our timekeepers especially Ron Savage who helps us,
but is not even a member.
Our next ClAMF comp is MARCH 20th, so please come, we hope to see Noel
fly his little NIPPER!!!!????.
