I tried to speck out my Wild Thing, I failed but got it to a dot, I also crashed
it into a tree twice
A good afternoon on Selsley
Mr Sparky and I headed to Malvern and flew some scale ships, one of which was the HP18 Ben purchased for £61 at the SCSA auction. After some extensive work and lots of time the finished result is incredible
The maiden was an event, not because of any incident, but because of the way
the Sparkster flew her. I was thoroughly impressed at the fact that this was
his first attempt at flying such a large model and on a 'new' slope, yet he
was throwing her around the skies with the confidence of someone that had
flown her on many occasions. Easily the best (re) maiden I've witnessed -
check out the maiden landing video below. A great and very memorable day.
