It is with the deepest sadness that I have to inform you all that Reggie sadly passed away last night.

Our condolences and sympathy goes out to his family circle.

Reggie was known to many in the modelling Community and to all of us who flew gliders, he was a character and a great modeler, he will be missed by us all.

Rest in Peace Reggie.

As Autumn/Winter is here, John and Richard spent the last of the light evenings on the slope.
The video was made with a head mount camera, it was just a test video of Richard’s New Le Fish.

A great chance to pick up a bargain and to dispose of your unwanted planes and equipement.
Weather is looking poor for flying so why not go alone and support the local club and enjoy the mornings craic with fellow model flyers.

Hello All,

With just over a week to go until the Horizon Hobby UK “Come & Fly” evening I thought I’d drop you all a mail to firstly remind you about the night and secondly to let you know a little of what’s planned!!

I have received the product for the evening, let me tell you there is some great stuff! We have also received a number of other raffle prizes from Horizon Hobby which include a DX8, Blade 450 3D, Phoenix Flight Sim, the all new Spitfire BNF & lots lots more! A big thanks to Horizon Hobby for sponsoring the event, this event is totally unique and the first of it’s kind in the UK, nowhere else will you get the chance to sample such an array of products.

Come along for a good nights craic and to support the great work that Epilepsy Action do, every penny raised in our raffle goes to this charity, a very worthy cause.

The time to remember is 7pm at Lisburn Lesiureplex (beside the Omniplex Cinema) next Friday night (4th November), really looking forward to seeing you all there.
