Here’s an advert from one of our regular fliers, Richard Williams:
Advertised on 28/5/2019
Reluctantly selling my Tanga 3m F3B full carbon glider due to little use and needing funds towards more camera gear.
It has a few very minor marks but overall in excellent condition. Flies incredibly well in both really light wind/lift to big wind days.
Comes with hi-tec servos and brand new 2500 mah NiMH flight pack. 4 strips of lead ballast approximately 300g each that fit in to the wing joiner.
Also comes with wing bags and a holdall for it all that is actually a snow board bag but fits perfectly. Can’t post due to size but willing to meet up if required.
Price is £450 ONO
Please contact Richard on 07843 231790

Hello, fellow static aviators…
Hopefully you have all enjoyed a fabulous year flying in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside up on White Sheet Down.
<—Open Slopes events were very successful—>
Fortunately we were blessed with fabulous weather this year
2018 was a great year for “F3F” at White Sheet
Practising, competitions or just for the sheer enjoyment of flying the pinnacle of sailplane technology
Piloting skills are superb and the accompanying soundtrack of an
F3F airframe howling across the sky is quite exhilarating
Organised events have all run very successfully in 2018,
with one exception…. You knew it was coming…
These guys don’t know…
When all the sky gods cooperate and scale birds get airborne,
it is always a marvellous sight to see.
No! this gentleman is not relaxing.
Contrary to what this photo may suggest, actually, this gentleman is navigating for a fellow pilot.
A very important job and proof that, yes, pictures do lie. Honest…
We all wish you better luck with your scale events next year Chris
TO BUSINESS, LADIES AND GENTLEMAN.
2019 is fast approaching, and the winter season will soon be upon us again.
