Indoor Fly in Wexford

Yes,…..at the pub (Ballycarney Inn) go straight ahead. I haven’t been on that road for some time and as I remember it there are a couple of ambiguous junctions where the signs can’t be relied upon.
You will pass through the village of Balindaggan before you get to Kiltealy
Coming from that direction the little Post Office in Kiltealy will be on your left, just after the village school which will also be on your left.

Your GPS will, hopefully, get you there.
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Hi Richard,

Sound like a plan !
Just come back from the midlands, sorry for the late reply !

Anyway, Give me a call when you pass the M50 toll bridge on 00353 87 620 48 26. That will be the time to leave the house for me to meet you.

On the M50, take exit 15, direction Kilternan / Carrickmines and follow the direction to the race track (Take the first left on the roundabout) and you should see a looonnngggg straight road, park somewhere here, not far from the roundabout. I will certainly be there before you anyway, I have a blue scenic.

See map, really easy  :D



See you tomorrow !

Hurray!
After many problems I think I have somethign ready to fly. (I think)

Thanks K. for the directions... I'm still a bit puzzled about what goes in the head and what goes in the feet... but eventually I'll sorted it out.  8)

No Nando, .........It goes ON your head, not in it!!! :roll:  

(Never mind, it won't make much difference to your flying)

See you tomorrow.

You can see my Tensor... Before.. And after !  :lol:  :P

Good plane, but the depron is waaaayyy too brittle ! Break like glass... I guess is that is due to the paint they use on it... I even managed to break a few parts during the building  :evil:

Anyway, after 2 flight for setup outside, and 3 flights inside, first encounter with a wall lead to this result !  Exploded !

I will not repair it, but will re-use the electronic to build a Pilatus and a glider, to do indoor aerotowing ! More fun !  :P

I check the coordinates in Google Maps and unfortunately the area doesn't have good resolution, I saw it points to with not too many houses around is that correct?

I know you guys are giving more precise locations but for me... I'd get lost very very easy. Smile
