« on: June 15, 2020, 10:04:34 AM »
NIMSA got out flying again yesterday for the first time in many months. Most people were flying PuRES with a few electric PuRES and other electric soarers.

Was nice just to get out flying again!

Any interest in a 2m span kit for a C130 Hercules? Looks like it might make a decent PSS model. Craig Kane in the Ards club is selling it. Looking for £80 airframe only or £125 with motors and esc's : http://www.rcfly.cz/elektry/herkules.htm  If anyone's interested contact me and I'll put you in touch with Craig

Thermal / Flat field / 2m PuRES Event
« on: November 03, 2019, 17:29:29 PM »
NIMSA ran a 2m PuRES event today at which we had 7 competitors and that's with acouple still to be built. One design class evens the playing field and stops it being a financial race! Some great flying in what looked very much like a dead sky and in the final round everyone just flew on. Longest flight time was 23.5 minutes!!

PSS / PSSA Mass Build?
« on: August 15, 2018, 10:37:00 AM »
Suggestion for next year.
Maybe we should take part in the PSSA Mass Build? This years model was the Hurricane. We could set the completion and flying date for our Sept 2019 event? Next years design will probably be decided in the Spring

Radios / Multiplex module.
« on: May 04, 2018, 19:01:15 PM »
AT the last ISR at Mt Leinster I got talking to one of the fliers with a 3030. Mentioned I had a module and he could have it if he wanted as I wasn't using it. He did email me his details, but I seem to have deleted the email :-[ I've dug it out of the garage and it's only the module in the box, no aerial or base plate. If you still want it pm me on here.

Misceleanous / EASA
« on: March 18, 2018, 18:33:09 PM »
Reading RCM&E last night and I got to the "EASA Speaks" article. Reading through it and I'm thinking , yep all looks good. Until - "There will be a default height limit on model aircraft operations of 120m (approx 400ft).

As a glider flyer that rang alarm bells. We start at around that height and hope to go higher! On the continent scale aerotowing is huge and I can't see them being too pleased with a 120m limit.

Anybody know if there are exceptions to the 120m?

Slope Soaring / T-Shirts
« on: September 05, 2017, 21:04:06 PM »
Was doing my ironing tonight and one of the items was my ISR T-Shirt. Must be at least 5 years old now and starting to look a little worse for wear  :(

Is there any interest in another run of these? Original? New design?

Slope Soaring / Mt Leinster 23-24 Sept?
« on: July 30, 2017, 19:08:55 PM »
Mt Leinster 23-24 Sept?
Is this date definite? Know there has been some talk that it's very close to Falaise and possibly pushing it back a bit

Just checking as I've other things to organise around the same time and don't want to clash.
