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
The event was held despite an adverse forecast. A DLG day accompanied by brave F3F launches.
Fabulous butties and cake courtesy of Mike.
Oh, and Russell achieved both land-out and catch of the day with his DLG
