This Saturday (14 July) is a day of action at Langar. We have had the runway swept and the tarmac has arrived. Lots of holes to fill which should be simple and a lot easier than last time as the weather is not minus one! Up there from ten o’clock. Anyone with an extra wheelbarrow and shovel is good, we have brushes and one barrow. Getting a lightweight wacker to flatten it and a tar boiler for the cracks. More the merrier and the easier it will be!
NEXT FLYIN! the next Langar Flyin will be the weekend of 4-5 August- arrival from the Thursday as usual til Tuesday.
Our friends at Trent Model Club have invited us up to their Fun Fly day, Sat 21 July. Please take your BMFA card with you. And a sausage or two for the barbie!
Here is an interesting story from a US guy who visited Seagull Models factory. Bit of an eye opener, far from the sweat shop impression most of us get of far eastern model suppliers, this is a very professional organisation! Click here
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE!
A Riding for Disabled school is now operating at the far corner of the hedge at the back of the South field. Models doing reversals etc have been drifting over this area (and the road) and this has to stop. Please end all southerly circuits halfway down the field AT LEAST.
This is especially for large, fast aerobats and turbine powered models. This map shows the new NO FLY ZONE. Drifting over that area will cause problems for our neighbours and eventually the club. There is an abundance of room further North and East.
If the problem continues, we will have no choice but to move the pilots box further to the North, which inconveniences everyone, so please take notice, and also make sure anyone else flying is aware.

The UK Freestyle Masters
Just back after clearing a mountain of cans, bottles and other stuff from an amazing weekend for Langar. Talk about partying hard and flying hard… I was simply an observer and I’m knackered. Lovely people and very professional attitude from all concerned. So proud of our (shared) juniors who flew so well and took the banter thrown at them so well. Sorry to poor old (young) Luke Oliver for picking him out of the hat for first flight. That must have been daunting. A quick thanks to sponsors here, I will write about those in more detail later, but for now, thank you to : Nexus Models Nexus Bob, Global RC Paul Clarke, AZ Aerosports Azza Stephens, Michael Donnelly MWM Warbirds, Propguy Jeti UK Bernie Jones and just hope I’m not missing someone.
