speed class at the Nats to be flown was FAI , at the MAAA concrete
circle at Albury, in windy and dusty conditions, and a temperature of
Many people trouble getting settings in the conditions, as the
pressure was low as well.
I only managed 4th, the first time I have not placed in the top 3
since Goulburn Nats 1979?, but was my own fault after doing 284kph
lately I enlarged the carb to hope to go quicker, but did not test it
before going to Nats and could not get a setting on the day, so shot
myself in the foot.
had even less luck as he could not get a setting at all, also he had
to get Richard to fly the model as he is having a few health problems,
so could not fly it himself, but was able to start and tune.
Every competitor used various model of PROFI motor and all except mine
were the profi arf. My model continues to fly low on one side of the
circle, despite attempts to rectify it.
