Once a year we give over the fixed wing field to our helicopter enthusiasts to show off their prowess and magnificent machines. This year the day dawned with clear blue skies and warm sunshine and light winds. What more could we ask for.
We welcomed visitors from clubs all around the area and were rewarded with some fantastic 3D flying displays from some of the UK's top pilots.
Thanks must go to the "Caterers" Dave Wilson and Family Durkin for sterling work in feeding and watering the masses and grateful thanks for the donation of some spectacular burgers from Abbeywood Care Home!
Rob Tomlin did a fantastic job in ensuring us the best pitch at the show, right alongside the runway’ In fact any closer and we would have been right on the landing strip itself! Not only that but we were scheduled to open the show with a flying display!

LARGE SCALE RC Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) Vampire JET Schubeler DS77HST
Amazing sound from this Schubeler EDF system. Sounds like a gas turbine engine due to the high number of blades in the fan.
