Stanley is happy to be able to join the contest but as usual - no wind!

Guys, it is a good exercise to walk up to the hill

Image
Contest equipment - look very complicated but its function is not necessarily better than CM's version

Image
Antenna impounded and ready for the contest

Image
Pilot briefing, listen carefully: the local rule is to drop the wind speed to 1 m/s in order to run the contest - just joking!

After watching these movies, I guess you will see the difference between the world top F3F pilots and our HK pilots. We still have a long way to catch up in term of accuracy, not just the flying style, cheers!

阿麥﹐ Stanley, 做咩唔寫信返黎呀 ﹖


Hi YC,

Just call in to say hello!
There are no internet access or telephone line in the holiday park, and you know how expensive it is to use GPRS !

Anyway, weather was poor in Scotland. It had been raining or no wind for most of the time !
However, I stil enjoyed it very much.
We spend some good time in the local atractions during the no flying days.

F-Fai, Ah Kin and Ah Sang are on their way back to HK now. While Angus and me will return on next Sunday and Monday.

I have some good pictures and movies of the Viking race, and will share it with you after editing by Angus.

See you soon.

Mak

Welcome home, HK Viking team!

Ah Mak, have you discovered where about your missing Aris is? Did you insure your cargo?
Don't worry, I am sure it will fly back home itself somedays. Will you fancy about having another new model shown up in VR2006, may be a Scorpion, Freestyler, Ceres, Victor, NYX Furio V-tail, or even a Viking?

You call it a landing !
His wing tip catch a grass on leg-8, and end up with a broken wing join-box after a spin. :(

Hi Stanley,
I'm still in the UK. Will return to HK on Monday.
My Aris is still missing. The worse thing is I didn't have insurance on it :(

Another Model ?
I would like to have a Scorpion, a Freestyler, a Viking, and may be a NYX Furio too.
However, it have to be after winning a Mark-six. :lol:

嘩。。。十足十我隻 Pike 係德國維京賽咁渦。。。分別係我 kick 樹枝﹐唔係 kick 草﹐隻機又係入 spin. 不過無斷 wing join. 點解我無呢個 title 架 ﹖

Hi all

I am now producing a DVD with all flights recorded by Mak, Stanley and me, including all detail information, such as pilot, round, time, wind condition, etc. Please let me know if you are interested and I'll send you a copy.

PS: My Aris hits grass in front of my feet and makes a 360 degree turn. Then it landed safely which is considered as high-difficult landing! It is fine now. The wing-joint is OK but just get a crack in the D-box. It can be fixed in a couple of hours.
