OCTOBER 2022 PLANE OF THE MONTH
This plane of the month has an interesting history!
Originally built by Maurie, completed and maidened with Saito nitro, by Gunter. Then purchased after only one flight and now being converted to electric by Dennis! It is a superb Seagull Stearman, of 1810mm span, in striking Red Baron colour scheme.
Power is to be Tomcat G160 motor, 80 amp plus ESC, 10s battery.
It looks magnificent in flight, and is a perfect hangar mate for Dennis's large scale Gipsy Moth biplane.
GLENN AND GREG AWARDED CCMAC CLUB WINGS!.
Glenn and Greg are both fairly new members, and both were new to RC plane flying, although Greg had flown a few drones! And Glenn took up the hobby whilst recovering from a shocking industrial accident. Both were keen and quick learners. And both have now been awarded CCMAC Club Wings, and are now enjoying flying solo!
Glenn recently brought along his sister Kim for a trial flight with Dennis. It would be great to see some lady pilots in the Club!
The Club has been running regular working bees to repair field damage caused by railbike vandals and ongoing wet weather.
Gary's foam electric Airbus really looked the part on a recent touchdown on our main runway!
What was this mystery object dug out of the field? It turned out to be the motor from Larry's plane after it plummeted into the ground fom a great height!
Converting $10 K Mart gliders to rc power is a current Club "challenge"! Here are some of them. Phil's conventional nose mounted motor, and Guys swinging pylon motor, and his twin engine version!
Security cameras have been installed at the field to catch trailbike vandals; but they have also captured some other feral intruders!

Gunter seemed happy with the maiden of his new Stearman bipe, but then decided to sell it!
