A few weeks back George, Chris,Donald, Billy, John and myself headed to the Scottish Model Airshow, unfortunately it turned out a very very cold wet windy day and only a few models flew in the morning.
We booked on a early boat and headed back home wet, tired yet happy. The craic was good even though we saw very little flying.

PLANES AND TRAINS AT MOUNT STEWART
ON
SUNDAY 8 MAY 2011

The second Area Scale Judging will be held at Mount Stewart, the National Trust property on the Portaferry Road from Newtownards, on Sunday 8 May, starting at 11.30 am.
This is the first time this has been held on Sunday, and it should be an excellent venue for us to show off our models, including all types as well as Scale. The NT have invited a Railway Club to join in, so there will be many new faces along if the North Down Model Railway exhibition is a guide. There will be a marquee on the lawn, which will be available to us, but which will inevitable cramp the space for the Flying Display. We run this every hour from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, 20 minutes each time, alternating Control Line and Radio Control Aerobatics.

COME AND JOIN US – THIS WILL BE A GREAT DAY OUT

Hi all , well our Slope event has passed and what an amazing weekends fun was had by the pilots that attended.
The weather was beautiful but it lacked the winds that would have given us a thrilling time on Slieve Gallion.
Saturday , we had 6 visiting pilots. Not alot but with forecast winds of 2mph the vast majority of travelling friends from all over Ireland decided to give it a miss. The cost of fuel sure is taking its toal on travelling pilots.
Sunday again was beautiful and the winds just were enough to get us up for some cruising along the Southerly slope.
We had 12 visiting pilots and everyone got to fly !
Hot Dogs went down a treat with everyone and over 60 were served during the 2 day event.
Next years event will be aptly named Hot Dog Slope Bash !
I put together a small video of the event.
I am still learning about my camera and the editing programme.
Well I think its improving.
I will upload fotos once I get them of the camera.
In the mean time enjoy the video.
Thanks to all the pilots that travelled to our event.
Please vote on this video if you like it !
