TVSF will publish on the TVSF.co.uk web site as to what location will be likely suitable for the 3 way club get together.. and hope fully see you there.

Scratchbuilt 1/4 scale Bergdfalke Mk 4
4.3m wingspan comes complete with all 7 servos .
This highly accurate model took 18 months to design and build and is is for sale along with the original scale documentation folder. It features the proven HQ 35 airfoil section, scissor action airbrakes and is a superb model to fly. In its day it won a number of national scale competitions.
The model has been stored for a little over 10 years since it last flew, as I turned to flying paraglides. There is some superficial discolouring on some of the surfaces but no more so than a full size glider would have, so actually looks quite realistic.

Fly-in Event This Weekend (July 9th 2017)
Please come along to Whitesheet hill this Sunday and have a fly with like-minded pilots at the first of the 2017 social fly-ins.
All are welcome!
A weather call will be made on Saturday around noon, with the decision being posted both here and on BARCS: www.barcs.co.ukThe club has recently altered its rules with respect to power assist models – this means that only a gale or rain will prevent us from flying – just remember to pack an electric assisted model (motors are now permissible for altitude gain at the hill).
Please note that these events are taking the place this year from our usual competitions – the idea is just to get people together to enjoy the beautiful site.
The club and the hill looks forward to seeing you!
