The UK and Europe's Control-line Carrier-Deck Site!
Hello all – here are the results from the de Peel meeting in Holland, courtesy of Robert, and some pix from Jan. Bart has made a lot of progress in taming his twin-engined ‘Beast’, and might even have won but for a poor landing. Jan also began a rather nice standing joke based upon Bart’s Picnic Fork that he left in Jan’s caravan – you’ll see some of the banter in the following pictures!
Tuning a Local Musical Instrument!
An interesting collection!
Bart’s Beast on the slow laps
Heavy Landing? Never mind, that will polish out nicely!
No-one knows why Bart’s fork was left in Jan’s loo…
…but it came in useful for keeping some undercarriage parts in place…
..and who could resist a toasted LiPo for supper!
…the Fork impressed a German Judge…
…and so it eventually flew back to it’s rightful owner!
Two young fliers made a good impession on their first attempts at Carrier – Bas Olijve notched up 180.7 points for 5th place, while Diego Holtermann-Garcia scored 138 for 6th place, both with Jan’s OS40-powered Guardian – well done chaps:
Bas catches the first two wires…
…while Diego heads for the deck for a good landing too!
It sounds as if Carrier is alive and well on the continent with some talented young fliers coming along nicely!
