Your Chairman’s report on today’s event.
I arrived at 8.30 and there were a few cars setting up, but not many. Within an hour the field and car park was pretty packed. As usual there were plenty of bargains to be had. Many were determined to sell. One person said to me “if I don’t sell these models I’m going to […]
Inner Gate Event Management

It’s easy to forget but vital that all models be suitably restrained and/or props/blades removed before changing failsafe/throttle cut/servo reverse or any other setting that could create an […]
Field Closed 12th April for field maintenance.
The field will be closed all day this Wednesday for lane maintenance. Rain and wind is forecast for that day so it shouldn’t impact any flying anyway. Please spread the word to any and all members. Regards BMFC committee
Bob Ryan’s L’il Plank
Here is Bob Ryan’s latest iteration of the L’il Plank. In his own words: “This one is electric powered, has a slightly wider cord and a roomier fuselage.
