Un an plus tard... mais sur le plan du MQ, Je mesure 594mm pour une demi-aile, donc je crois que c'était OK :D

Thanks Ralph!

Yes I'm aware of the seasonality. Our club bring out the bashers in winter 🤣
Hoping to meet a few fellow slopers in the new year!


Slope Soaring / Back at it - north Dublin
« on: October 04, 2020, 09:18:03 AM »

After years of fretting and contemplating I finally got back into the game (thanks COVID Fridays). Joined fingal model flying club just north of where I live (Donabate), and they have a lovely but tiny slope that works perfect for small smaller aircraft but depends on easterlies which are rare enough.

So I finally built the BLH Tito that I bought in 2013 back when I lived in Toulouse waiting for the winds to turn - should work really well there.

Anyone else flying north of Dublin?
Where do you fly? It's a bit flat out here 🤦🏻♂️.

Would love to join a meet up wherever is doable from here.

Hi Jim,

thanks for that. i heard about this but didn't know the details.

I have no serviceable models at the moment so I will probably drop by some Saturday to chat with a few flyers.
i was supposed to drive out to Mt Leinster today, but a sick baby intervened.
isn't there also an insurance requirement in Ireland?

looking forward to meeting you and the other flyers on the slopes soon.

i was in bed with a flu the last few days so didn't even get to my PC.

I've always flown gliders. i like the purity of it, no mess no noise. i had a few prop planes early on but never really appreciated it.

where is the flying spot exactly?
is it near the hell fire club?

Hi Fred,

We're just above phénix Park. There is a club in the park but I haven't been able to catch them :)

I'll be there this weekend.
looking forward to it

we've recently moved to Ireland (Dublin) from France and are all unpacked now. ready to prepare a few gliders now that the weather starts picking up.

thought I'd introduce myself and see where i could meet some fellow amateurs.

I saw that the sites discussions are quite old.
where is a man still allowed to fly these days?
can we still get by with 35MHz gear or is 2.4GHz obligatory?
Looking forward to getting out there again.
