Hi Brian,

Thanks for letting me know. At this stage I do not have much feedback about Blackheath! I cannot be there on the Saturday. The Decs should be there on Sunday. Some may be there on Saturday as well.

Best wishes

Good to see you're back in the saddle, shame I will miss you at Black Heath, I'm planning a Sunday visit and think I may be pushing my luck with SWMBO both days that particular w/e.

*giggle* I am looking forward to watching you enter the grid :)

We are hoping to be there, probably on the sunday.
Hope the wind picks up a bit as I am hopeless in light wind conditions having 'learnt' in 20mph+ :blue-confused:

We shall bring 120ft lines anyway just in case.
But I'll probably end up just taking photos :kid_content:
1 of the 47.

I really hope that 'everyone' is prepared to 'take the plunge'.

I am sure that it will make sense to the fliers once they are in place. It IS going to be quite demanding and everyone MUST be able to 'own their hover' as I think the phrase is!

ooo, sounds interesting! We land around 5pm on Saturday, so Sunday is a free day.

Edit: Just Googled it, Vainer Park, right in the centre! That'll be a YES then!

We won't have room to bring any kite kit, soooooo .... will have to ask someone nicely (Bazzer?) to lend me something to fly with :blue_wink: tee hee ... could always bring one of the 'old' TFS skins I guess? (the new ones are all with Stephen now!!!)

There is no excuse not to be able to fly a Rev 1 in Zero wind on 120 ft lines.

<grins>

On a damp November day it might be a slight problem.

You have 2 - 3 mph reverse walking speed. Just get on with it....
