WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS, WARREN AND ALLAN

Warren B has now rejoined CCMAC. He originally belonged to the Club more than 20 years ago when he was involved with building the Club house. It seems as if he has lost none of his flying skills, and has several nice planes including the four stroke nitro powered Sig Fourstar ARF.

Allan moved to Bateau Bay a few years ago, and looking for a hobby decided to get into Rc with  a new ParkZone Carbon Cub. His previous experience many years ago with gliders, has stood him in good stead, and it seems that it will not be long before he gains his "Wings"

Arthur's lovely scratch built electric powered Liberty biplane, June "Plane of The Month", was recently maidened by Gary. After only minor elevator trimming it performed superbly with two flights, and smooth landings. Gary was relieved after being entrusted with a valued model, and Arthur (pic) was more than happy!

The plane is 1460mm span. Built from Sig balsa kit, despite parts missing! Cowl made from scratch, wire cabane struts replaced with aluminium strip for accuracy. Motor Turnigy G60, ESC Turnigy AE80A, battery 5s.

Gunter has finally maidened his classic Seagull Gypsy Moth biplane powered by Saito four stroke nitro. He even bought a new covered trailer to transport it, and his Cub!

It joins Dennis's similar electric powered Gypsy Moth at CCMAC once again renewing the ongoing debate between I.C. and electric power. But one thing is certain, they both look fantastic in flight!

Bob F of the CCMAC Control Line Group has been fortunate to have recently acquired a beautifully built and truly classic plane.

It is a "Classic B Team Racer" of the type that was very popular for racing in the sixties. Apparently, at the time, one of the engine manufacturers claimed "100mph for 50 laps"!

Derek has successfully remaidened his OS46 powered Scanner, rebuilt after its earlier incident on its original maiden. Possibly something to do with reversed ailerons?

The lower field has been slashed again, to remove the summer's rapid regrowth.

In view of the success; early removal of the large wattle patch, by traxcavator, has now also been approved by members.
