Gday guys, only found this thread by accident.. Great idea, though the feedback from the other "Overseas" experts is bloody helpful. . I'm only new to this gig, though I've been around for over half a century, bought a Twister Chinook a few weeks back, and became hooked on all things RC Electric. Spend have my down time at home surfin looking at new merchandise , and reading the posts on this site to compare...Anyway, Happy Easter and may the Easter Bilby bring you happy hours in the air..

Cheers and Beers,

Mike

Hi Jaskel (Jason?)

Thanks for posting the videos!

Don't know if you have already done this, but I have emailed everyone on my contact list at PEMAC a link to your post so they can have a look at the videos.

Regards,
BILL!

Default found this forum

Hi all, been posting in the U.S forum for about a year when I found this one about 5 minutes ago. Been flying in Tassie for a few years now, and there is not much here in terms of resources or backup. Had to import 99% of everything from the mainland or OS, and be basically self sufficient. Had great support from Geoff at S& B, where I bought the Me 163 Komet and Me 262, Mark at Extreme r/c, Peter at Wowings, Shane at Canterbury sailplanes in NZ, and the staff at Wattsuprc for all their motors and ESC's. There are some fliers around the northwest where I live, but mostly glo stuff. My glow engines are in storage for quite some time now. Exclusively electric now for 5 years; edf, epp and coreflute have taken firm root. Able to fly from my back door, with lots of space around me, but the weather dictates my planes. lots of wind here!!!!!!!!!. Look forward to hearing from anyone.... Most of my planes are scratchbuilt luftwaffe experimental jets and pushers. Nothing from plans, all from drawings or photo's. And they are all used as full contact combat planes

Posted on here about 4 weeks ago, and nothing but silence lots of replies from the U.S and elsewhere, but nothing on this one. Is there something I should know.......?

Psst! Michael, they are intimidated by your planes. And as we all know, England sent the worst of their convicts to Tasmania!

Default oh well, keep trying......

You might be right Bob; they made a "B" grade horror flick last year called "Dying Breed", set in the Central highlands. Some Tiger hunters ( a supposedly extinct marsupial wolf still shows up here from time to time) stumble across a village inhabited by descendents of the "Pieman", a notorious Irish convict. This charming fellow murdered and ate his fellow convicts..... you can guess the rest. Maybe everyone saw the movie and decided to shun us. When Australians are not making Kiwi jokes, they make Tasmanian ones. Oh well....... I actually rang the secretary of the local model aero club last week, which flies from a field about 110 klm's from here. I was enquiring about getting insurance to cover any mishaps during a planned display at " Steam fest ", a local, annual, historical machinery fair. The organisers approached me about it last year, and my sons were really keen on doing it. While the club people were approachable about it, they openly discouraged the Idea. Seems you have to join the club ( about $240.00 for three of us, annually) then "earn" our bronze wings etc, then put a submission into the club, then have it approved, and then maybe the insurance people will come to the party. No combat of course. I can see their point- no-one wants to be hit by anything, but it really took the gloss off it. When I can fly for free, whenever I like, 10 metres from my back door, paying hundreds of dollars to travel 220 klm's to wait my turn among the glo planes just doesn't do it for me. I'm sure they are a good bunch of blokes, but I prefer the sheer simplicity of how things are. I have enough rules and regulations in my life; flying is my escape. Anyway, the only avenue I have to voice these things is through the Wattflyer forums, so maybe somebody in Australia will read this and talk about their experiences. How do people in the cities, who fly their parkflyers at local sporting fields, get on? Does anyone out there know of a public liablity/ indemnity that protects everyone? I can get unlimited information about the U.S system, but bugger all about ours. Any advice would be appreciated..... cheers.

Smile It's okay to fly by yourself.

Michael, there is absolutely nothing wrong with flying alone! I fly by myself while my son sits in the car reading/listening to the radio. Clubs: they are great if you need to learn how to fly but the dues and restrictions (I know safety is important- no arguement there) take all the fun out of it for me. Well, I never joined a club and taught myself to fly. I don't think teaching oneself to fly is the way to go, but it can be done. It is called "preparation". We see many people who are interested but don't put an iota of effort into looking up how to do it. Forums like WattFlyer make that much easier, but you have to do some comparison "shopping" on posters' advice.

Bob

Hi galant and pattern14,

This forum does not get a lot of traffic as you have noticed, and I am not sure why, but there is a very active Australian Regional Forum over on RCGroups that may be of interest.
