The Great Orme is a brilliant site for slope soaring but it must be treated with respect. There is supposed to be no power flying, but the odd bit of quiet flight power assist doesn't attract attention. Just please don't spoil the place with whining Zagis or you'll spoil it for everyone. Here's a...

From what I have discerned so far is the MFNZ, CAA and the district council have asked the members of SWMAC to have written safety Bylaws that would bring them in line with the rest of the R/C clubs. The legal nature of today’s society demands that we “dot the I’s and cross the T’s or in lay...

There's a slope site just a couple of miles from me, it's only a small slope & not a patch on the Great Orme but it's handy for trying out a new model. It's even got a wooden bench overlooking the slope .....must put my name on it. :lol: Polyphilla....[image]
