Easter Monday March 6, 2015 saw the maiden flight of Steve K’s 50cc Spitfire. Built by me and piloted by Connor Stephenson, we watched with great expectation along with a fair number of members, enjoying the Easter sunshine. The flight was spectacular! The only adjustment to trim was two clicks of down elevator.

As the clouds parted and the sun shone a few brave flyers ventured out for a bit of fun, there were quite a few laughts, some very innovative tech and a lesson in blended waterfalls !

I didn't get into model flying until 1993, when I joined the Wortley club and started a long hard road of learning to fly. There were no ready to fly planes those days so I built from kits at the back of my garage. My first large kit was a T240 with a 28cc petrol engine. I even had to apply to the CAA for an exemption certificate. This was 1995 and I had joined the RAMS club flying off concrete runways at Acaster near York. I also join the LMA and went to Withernsea meeting where Ian Turney-White took my T240 up for its first flight. He let me land it on the second flight, and I bust the prop, but I was pleased to have got it down in one piece.
