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!!

I see Mr Wallace is cheating, One model event!!!


Great to see so many RES models

Spots or no Spots?

Unfortunately I crashed my model due to the 90° bend I put on the push rod it broke at the servo and didn't use it for the photo
I was allowed to fly the fresh in the last 2 rounds and I had no advantage in any way as both flights were trimming flights and getting the tow hook position correct
But must say the fresh was easier flew 😁😁

What about a postal event come the spring? Would allow an All Ireland competition without the travel?

Another great day with e 2m PuRES today, 6 of us out just for a bit of fun flying. Despite the cold there was some lift but times were still well down on last week. Hopefully we'll get out a few time sthrough the Winter and try to find some frozen thermals  8) 8)

Happy Days

Ah, it warms the cockles of me heart to see guys braving this weather for a spot of flying. Well done lads. :)
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Hi all.

I am looking forward to getting out and about again very soon this year.
I really enjoy flying my PuRES V2.
I have just finished  building a second fuse for E-power.
These models are a very nice build and I look forward to the day we can all get together for some PuRES fun.

Chat soon.

Adrian.
