new toys arrived today

Heading out of the door, so my stroking was limited but the new air one 3m is now finished. it might have taken 2 years from prototype and to production but it's definately worth it.

Pics and a build to come

2 possitive moves

Working with Tony at Sloperacer and actally flying Willows, means that we have lengthened the Ballast tubes in all Willows.

With Tony's help we have also found a way for the Willow to make a possitive difference.

The Bristol Neonatal intensive Care Unit is a cause very close to me.  The Willow started as a project and has grown beyond anything that we could expect.  With the help of Tony at Sloperacer half of the proceeds to Willow f3f will be given to the Neonatal care Unit.

A little bit of fun with a wing

Now we've all heard the stories about how strong wings are- right?

So here's the plan, wait till the missus goes out then get your son to sit on a spare wing and see what happens.....

Not much flex at all.

So how about giving your camera to the boy and sitting on the wing yourself?

So a 17stone prop hands his camera over (feeling more nervous about the camera than the wing) and.....

yeah, the wing bent more this time! but not bad going and not a bad pic with a 4 year old on the camera!

I recon we'll be ready for thhe bigger ballast tubes and winter winds!
