Slope Soaring / Re: Quark 2M - Back to cutting innocent trees!
« Last post by Ezratic on May 20, 2019, 19:02:00 PM »
Lots of things getting in the way but still working on it. Been getting in some flying, working on other planes, etc.
Got the ailerons done, cutting out some ribs still and currently getting the sides of the fuse finished. Took 2 months for some of the wood to come from my supplier, they had to find some trees to cut down :)
Got all the carbon, just got to get cracking and pull my fingers out.
 
Airplanes on the slope: Le Fish, Madslide variation, Flying wing/Madslide creation. At Sheba crater Northern AZ

Well, I ended up not going as I decided to do yet another mod on the tail of the glider.

Just received my MACI membership card, so I am now insured, so will be doing the maiden with peace of mind in that regard.
Still need to receive the IAA sticker.....

Regards
Sandi

Anyone flying this weekend?

I believe that my Phoenix 2000 should be ready by this weekend for it's maiden flight, but I do not trust myself to fly it alone.  ;D

The wind should be a mild 8 - 9 knots northerly...

Slope Soaring / Re: RIP Noel

I remember Noel from his days in the St. Finbar's Flying Club (1951)  which amalgamated with Cork MAC about 1953.
Noel and his teammate Sammy Lake were the top C/L Team Race fliers  of the time and were always head to head with the late Stan Cussen and Alastair McConnell. 
Around 1955 The Cork Gliding Club was formed and Noel backed away from model flying to become one of its leading members.  He later returned to model flying and quickly  established himself as an international expert.
I learned a lot from him back in the early days. His witty humour and friendship I will always treasure.

This is with great sadness that I just learned of the passing of Noel Barrett, aged 84.
Noel was a true gentleman, an RC legend and his good advices, craics and experience will be greatly missed and create a hole in our little community.
Condolences to all the family,
Good winds and blue skies Noel!
