I did load the Impala in the car but as I approached Cardiff I realised that in my haste to get out the door, I had forgotten the wing bands and dowels for holding the wing on. Doh!
I did enjoy the 20 minute walk along the track to the long, lush, grassy, westerly slope and set up the Signal.
I gave it the old heave ho and off it went, and it rose up and up and up, with the spectacular lift that Mickey's is so well known for.
I could perform all the usual aerobatics with ease, with huge loops from level flight, and pulling up to do a stall turn the model just seemed to go on and on vertically for ages before eventually running out of steam and I kicked in full rudder. I also had a couple of goes at performing the rolling circle, which went well until the very last bit, when turning towards me from the left when I bottled out. So I'm about 80% there. Next time eh!
I had a few good long flights, without seeing another soul up there before packing away, as I was beginning to feel cold.
My next two weekends are fun packed doing other things but I may be able to sneak in the odd flying hour on the Meio.
So until next time, happy flying.
P.S. Here's a pic of my completed correx Impala.
