Scale / Check This Out
« on: April 15, 2009, 20:25:37 PM »
Some of you may have seen this already. But check this out. It's a 1/2 scale Austria Elephant made by some Swiss guys. I think the full size Austria had a 30m wingspan. So that would give this Model a 15m wingspan. Big or what.

Hi All,

Hi all,
I know I have already posted this in miscellaneous but I though I would post it again in scale so more poeple might see it ( It was Joe's idea so its his fault  :P  :P )
Around the same time you guys were having your Kerry flyin the Dublin Gliding Club were flying from Fermoyle Strand in Kerry (launching using an auto-tow). Here is a link to some videos taken on the day. Enjoy

Misceleanous / Avitars

Hi Fred.
There appears to be something wrong with the avitars, I think. I can't upload any and the one I had before has disappeared.

Slope Soaring / Crystals
« on: May 31, 2007, 14:25:16 PM »
Hi All. I'm looking for a website that sells Hitec/Multiplex crystals and that can deliver to Ireland in a week or two. Looking for some crystals before the ISR Fly-In. Do any of you guys know of such a website.
I have already tried going to Green Hobby and Models but they very rarely have the crystals I need and when they do they only have one or two of them.

Slope Soaring / Longshot
« on: May 02, 2007, 17:49:11 PM »
Hi. I thought I'd show a few pics of my Discus HLG. Its not working properly at the moment. I am having reception problems, maybe caused by a faulty servo. I'll have to work on it a bit more.

Slope Sites in Ireland / Winds from The East
« on: April 26, 2007, 11:16:43 AM »
Looks like the wind is going to come from the east again this weekend  :roll: . We are going to have to find a good east slope some day Fred. I guess I will do some flat field soaring then. At least that is not dependent on wind direction.

Scale / DGC Ka8b
« on: November 24, 2006, 14:56:39 PM »
I hope to start my Ka8b in the next week or 2. I ordered the wood yesterday which will take a week or 2 to arrive. Hope to model one of the Ka8b's at the Dublin Gliding Club (DGC). Here's one of the colour schemes to whet your appetite.

Club Talk / New ISR Website.
« on: August 21, 2006, 15:01:01 PM »
I like the new website. I persume it is still under construction because there is a lot of blahh blahh blahh and gsgscg aabdbvc acbfuvb on the web site  :D. So I take it our club is offcial now.

Slope Soaring / RC Soaring DVD's
« on: August 18, 2006, 09:24:06 AM »
I have a number of DVD's at home about RC soaring. I get them from this website, , its an american website. They are great for a rainy day, or when the wind is coming from the wrong direction, or both  :roll: . If you are considering getting one I would suggest get the DVD "Just Want To Fly" (the first one). It has a good selection of footage in it from Scale soaring in America, Scale soaring in the Swiss Alps, Dynamic Soaring ect. And because of the exchange rate between the Euro and the Doller we can get them cheaper to.
Just thought you would like to know.

« on: June 16, 2006, 12:38:54 PM »
I have been working on this glider since Autum last year. Here are a few pitures of it I took about a month ago. I have made some more progress on it since. I'll post some more photo of it in a few days. Hope the photos come out. This is my first time posting photo's.
