LMAC - Sunday 22nd March - Flight Action

A selection of flight action from Sunday 22nd March. Spring had certainly sprung and a number of members took full advantage.  Pictures provided by Matt Chamberlain.

LMAC assisting the local university with RC related projects

A team of Leicester University students contacted LMAC recently requesting assistance with the test flight of their Search and Rescue plane they have created as part of a group project.  Their initial wing wasn't really fit for purpose, so we had to improvise and give them a wing which worked and got the plane airborne.   Thanks to those LMAC members who assisted on the day.



Also contacting LMAC recently was Loughborough University Student Rob Law who is working on a project got get multi-rotors to track vehicles (formula one cars is the aim). Rob took the opportunity on Sunday 22nd March to do some testing as well as practicing for his multi-rotor A certificate. Whilst on site, Rob captured the following aerial video showing other LMAC planes in action.

Sunday 21st December 2014 Indoor Flying meeting

Just a reminder, the first of our 2014/2015 Indoor Flying events at our new venue Sports Connexion at Ryton on Dunsmore CV8 3FL. is running on Sunday 21st December 2014 between 18:30 and 22:00. 

The weather forecast for the next week doesn't not look particularly favorable, so why not get some stick time and come and join the LMAC indoor fun?  It maybe the final of the BBC Apprentice on Sunday evening, but that's what BBC iPlayer is for!!

Hopefully we will have some hot drinks and biscuits available too and lots of friendly banter.

We hope you can join us.  Failing that, another session is booked on the 11th January 2015 at the same venue and hopefully you'll be able to try out some of your Christmas flying presents!

On behalf of the LMAC Committee, we wish you a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous healthy New Year.
