Entry to our flying site can only be gained by using the steel gate marked on the map Above by a Green arrow.There is another gate nearby but this does not allow you to gain access to our strip and must not be used. It is now essential that no aircraft is flown in the ‘No Fly Zone’ AT ANY TIME. For those of you still unsure where the ‘No Fly Zone’ is please see the map Above clearly showing Area Marked With RED where you must not fly. ( featured image )
If anyone is found to be flying in the ‘No Fly Zone’ the Committee will invoke the Disciplinary Procedures as stated in our Club Constitution.
In view of the size of our flying strip and the confines of the surrounding flying area (Overflying the public highway is not permitted) no gas turbine powered aircraft or drones are to be flown.
Please Note that Flying is not permitted before 10.00am or after dusk by any aircraft irrespective of the noise levels it may generate.
It has come to the Committee’s attention that control fixings on members` models are not as secure as they should be. Accordingly, it is now imperative that you make sure your aircraft comply with the following guidelines:
1. Keepers must be used on all linkages/clevises.
2. Control surface hinges (flat, where fitted) must be pinned.
3. Servos must be fixed as per the manufacturers instructions. i.e. if 4 screws are required then that is what should be fitted.
4. A range check of every Tx must be carried out prior to flying.
5. Transmitters with damaged/broken aerials must not be used.
We operate a “Peg On” system of frequency control so you must ensure that your peg is on the board before switching on your TX.
If you are using a 2.4Ghz set then a black peg is generally recognised for this frequency.
