F3B Practice at BERG

Lionel and Michelle about to launch a Deon’s F3B glider.

On Sunday morning the weather did not look promising for a good thermal activity and RC gliding at all, but I needed my flying fix for the week and also to go and help BERG newest member Chris to maiden his 3 meter electricship.

Deon concentrating on landing after a speed run.

Take that!!! ( Lionel with a strong right hand launch)
I did not expect many members to turn up. To my surprise and as I turned into the gate at the Berg field there were 4 cars ahead of me heading for the parking spot. It turned out to be the SA F3B team all geared up and ready for practicing for not so far away upcoming world F3B championships later on this year.
BERG's newest members Johan and Chris with their keen youngsters.

Apart from a light to moderate wind (that started out somewhat southerly and then turned NW) the flying we did turned out okay.

Later on Stefan arrived and had us all amazed with his latest discus launch glider demonstrating some good launching heights
