    It should be possible to set it up so you can drop water bombs on anyone looking for arrows that missed.

    Saturday was a no go due to visibility less than 150yds clearing to strong winds & showers

    However Sunday was stunning and 3 flights averaging 10-12 mins were successfully completed - launching from hand into a light breeze and nice floaty landings. Managed a few gentle gentle aerobatic manoeuvres on the last flight - loops are large as are rolls (even with an aileron wing) and managed an Immelmann too.

    Currently have rates and throws set to 'mild' but I think if I open them up a bit then these moves should tighten quite a bit - may even throw in a few stall turns and Cuban 8's.

    Nowhere near the mad stuff I did back in the day with my Sukhoi but very rewarding and relaxing on a nice day.


    It's cool that the BMFA do a half price/half year subs offer too which is very helpful.

    I meant to do that - honest ! !
