Only 8 days to go now.

Hope to test fly the new Comp-Arf 3M 260 tommorow. Just the tank to assemble, run the fuel lines and it's ready to fire up the DA. Then an inspection and double check everything before the test flight, looking forward to flying this one.

Don't worry Chrisby, we also have the 3M Red Bull 330 as a back up and for you to do some freestyle demos as it has a smoke system.

Can't wait till next Thursday!!!

Seeing as you can't spell 'junior' I'm sure the boss will let you away with a $40 junior entry fee...

If you are a junior member of the NZMAA (ie. under 18) then yes you're a junior and will likely get a $40 refund if you ask nicely.

Test flew the 260 today after the certification inspection. 5 flights and I'm just starting to teach it how to fly properly, might have to get Bogan to give it a couple of lessons . It came out at 17kg and flies well with the DA 150, BMB Cannisters, Smartfly EQ6-Turbo Power System and a Mejzlik 28 x 12, 3 Blade. I just know Chrisby is gonna love flying this one!!

Roll on the Rumble 2009!!!

Thanks for the phone call Al - man that plane looks sensational - job well done mate - hope Chrisby is able to teach it some "Aussie" manners

Just got back from a weekend competition in Toowoomba - excellent comp with 25 fliers - windy weather but temps in low to mid 30's.

Must have the same scales in NZ that they have in the USA, all weigh 4-5lbs light.
