Needless to say it didn’t work out like that. By 9.30 it was overcast and the wind was already freshening but rigidly staying from the South. Grey clouds loomed but as usual this didn’t stop us. After helping the sorcerer and his apprentice (Colin and Dave) de- rig DMX the very small Wednesday crew of Steve Raine, Phil Hardwick, Mike Sloggett and myself set up the field and took HXP to the launch point.

Best flight of the day was 7mins by Mike, hovering with minimal control inputs which I tried and failed to emulate!
