Slope Flying  


Another day of light winds on Lesley.
There was enough slope lift to stay in the air with a steady series of light thermals, by following them back to the car park  I was just in time to pick up the next one when I got back to the slope
I have had about 10 hours with the Supra and hope  to use it in a thermal contest on Sunday

Light lift at Haresfield


The mist failed to clear today, I flew in the morning there was plenty lift but I was limited to about 300 feet 


Good lift at Haresfield

This vintage model belonged to a Visitor from Birmingham

Crimping pliers with crimps

The specially designed Crimping Tool securely crimps the pins to servo leads creating a permanent, reliable connection. The pins are then inserted into the plastic housing. Wire leads from 28 through 20 swg can be used. Just cut the leads to length, strip off the insulation, crimp the pins on and install the appropriate plastic housing. It takes about five minutes per connector and can even be done in the field
