Speed was run in ideal conditions in contrast to the weather that we
were supposed to fly the week before.
A disappointing entry, I don't know what to do, I personally can't be
bothered to build gear to fly with only a few people entering.
The Perky of Paul's finally reached the potential of the super tigre
motor, it now holds the ''unofficial fastest Perky title.'' My old
Enya decided it did not want to run properly so we did not have enough
to get an Average speed, need a minimum of 3, we started of with 6??
another event dwindling.?!!
The next SPEED comp is at KNOX this Sunday 25th, Peter Koch is getting
the field mown short, so please support it or they may not bother
again, there is also the Stuntmasters trophy on.
MERLIN glow plugs are available in Australia now, I am going to find
out who in Melbourne stocks them, you may have to order them in as
there are 57 varieties available from std type to Nelson style, Glo
Bee in all heat ranges. These are made in the USA by Al Kelly, who
used to make c/l props years ago, he is now flying FAI Speed in the
US. Go to the MERLIN web site and check them out. The Aussie agent is
DYNAMIC HOBBIES in Melb if your local Hobby Shop does not know.
Also the following week on 1/2 October is another speed comp if you
want a drive to Albury, nothing for months then everything.
See you at Knox. Robin Hiern
