Indoor flying  
 Jamie's Trex 250 video clips  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik9R61WRCbU 1 minute and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajuobzfY7O8  2 minutes

In the last couple of months we have had quite a few new faces flying indoors, not new to the hobby but trying the 'light' side of things for the first time. Mike Whittard, Richard Jordan and Paul Leyton are all well known local fliers who have been flying for many years, Paul in particular is an extremely accomplished display normally seen piloting several thousand pounds worth of fast jet. All have taken easily to indoor flying but have the discipline of keeping within fixed boundaries a challenge.
