The 2012-13 CL Stunt Series got under way yesterday with the HBRF club's round at Taupo. Rob Wallace was running the contest and had done a great job to get a circle hewn into the rugged terrain of the Centennial Park in-field paddock. It was a busy weekend with motorcycle and scooter racing over the fence, a pair of Piper Pawnee aircraft towing full size gliders into the fine, thermal filled air beside us and lots of RC models at the 436 Fun Fly strip behind us.

F2B had five entrants - low, but better than expected. Victory went to Kim Webby flying his beautiful green and white Aotearoa model.

Rob Wallace was the only entrant in Sportsman and his two flights were duly rewarded with the maximum 1000 points. The next round in Auckland should see a few more Sportsman entrants, but we do need to do some work in recruiting new competitors into Sportsman Aerobatics. Anyone young, old or retread who wants to have a crack at CL aerobatics can contact me for advice, assistance, gear and contacts for CL flying.

Many thanks to Rob Wallace for organisation and mowing. Wynn Robins for judging F2B. Dave Wright for Judging Sportsman.

The next round is at Whenuapai Primary School in West Auckland on the 24th of November: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=43

Great weather for the competition; not too windy.

I had hoped to have a model to fly but it was not to be... certainly I had a model but no ESC or prop.

Attached is the stunt lineup.
