I am stunned by the astounding quality of models built by members, and the advances in 3D printed planes.

I have dusted my gliders and flew on the slope my Wicked Wing at full ballast in 25-30 knots. I would have preferred less wind for my first flight, but the weather forecast was so bad for the next week, I took a deep breath and launched her with more nerves than usual.

I have flown my Easyglider once at the club, in less than ideal conditions for thermal soaring (thick fog, then wind and very cool temps).

I am building a 3D aerobatic slope glider (Vagabond XL from Hacker) but temps are so low in my house (15ºC or 60ºF) that glues don't work well (hair dryer used).

I have been training with a slope soaring simulator (CRRCSim), free and very good (additional slopes available in the french alps , those included by default are very poor). At first I was unable to fly an aerobatic 3D glider (Wasabi, kind of Fish), but with patience I improved.

Sample flight with the sim at col de Faisse.

A new member came to our club, he said he had built a WWII fighter, and had no previous experience nor in flying RC planes nor in building, so I advised him to build a parkjet and redirected him directly to this site.

Happy flying to all of us.

Cheers.

The models built by members are simply amazing and its a joy to watch the flight vids,i went flying yesterday for the first time this year and my nerves were caused by the fields with 3 ft tall crops that surrounded me,i tested some mods on my multis [ about 7 flights ] and then gave up for the day. I have put puller and pusher motors on 2 of my quads and they are darned quick in level flight ,just gota get my head around having 2 throttles on TX oh the joys.

Those thumbs have to be busy.

yes they have,am using left ratchet slider on TX for puller/pusher motor throttle,on the big quad its pretty easy but the smaller quad is proving challenging due to its quicker reaction time,great fun but a bit nerve tingling.
