The UK and Europe's Control-line Carrier-Deck Site!
The Herenthals meeting looks like one for the diary next year! Here’s a report from Max Uttien: “We all enjoyed a great contest and fly-in at Herentals Belgium, featuring F2B stunt and BCD. On Saturday, we had good flying weather, cloudy, almost no wind and dry. On Sunday, there was more wind and occasional rain. There were 18 participants from Belgium, UK, Germany and Netherlands, with Jan Odeyn just edging a win from Mickal Svododa by 262.9 points to 257.6. Have a look at the scoreboard – to get a top six placing you needed to score over 230 points – wow! Despite Jan’s success with his electrically-powered models, many contenders (such as the 2nd and 3rd placed pilots here) are staying with I/C,The organisers provided camping facilities at the event for tents and camper-vans, and as always, there was a good atmosphere and facilities through the weekend, including Belgian beer and an excellent barbecue with friendly club members behind the bar. Everything was VERY well organized – thank you!!
Thanks are also due to Max for his pix and report and also to Robert Schulze for sharing his excellent photo album with us (link above) – that BBQ looks yummy!
