  1. slope fest

    I'm up for it, again depending on dates but there would need to be a pretty good reason not to go.
  2. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    Hi Alex - add me to the list too please for 1 block, & let me know you bank a/c. Cheers!
  3. WANTED: EPP slope models or kits

    I have a CS mustang in the box that's next on my list to build. On the EPP front, I'm happy to chip in for any order too..

    Hope the wind was not too lumpy - it was good when I got there at 3 but deteriorated and was quite turbulent at the landing zone by the time I left.

    Hi Ian - i am heading out there shortly. I'll be there by 2pm but can only stay about an hour. Nick

    It looks like this could become my main transmitter. I just cocked up an antenna repair on my X9D - it will need a new backboard but i don't see anyone stocking them for the original Taranis (not Plus). On the bright side it should still be fine as a buddy box. So sorry kids, daddy's keeping your Christmas present this year.

    duh, i was not thinking about the launch at all.

    Awesome speeds guys! What was the wind speed up there yesterday? Pete, your burner seemed to take smoother lines without the gyro - does it get to a point where gyro vs pilot start working against each other at that speed?

    I'm probably going to be out camping this weekend.

    I'll take one Pete.

    Yeah, the value for money is terrific. Those mods Pete W has done sound interesting. I don't really get why you'd want a light transmitter when flying a DLG - sounds like you guys are getting a bit too serious about stuff if you think an extra few grams in your hands is somehow reflected in the DLG?! I'll be sticking with the stock X7 with the AA battery tray in the back - it'd be pretty funny if i end up using it as my primary radio.

    I've been looking for a buddy box transmitter for my daughters and anyone else who happens to be out on the slope and wanting a try at flying. After much procrastination and generally pissing about settled on the Taranis Q X7. I decided on this model for several reasons: - price. $154 delivered. - opentx. If i bust my Taranis X9D I can use this as an interim transmitter. - If my kids actually get into flying then this would be an awesome first transmitter. I've got it on order but not yet received it so I will update once it arrives and have had a chance to play with it.

    Hi Ian & welcome to Wellington. The strong & steady NW at Whitireia is a dream for slope soaring so I am sure it won't disappoint! We usually head out most weekends when the wind is good, and sometimes after work during the week, so keep an eye on this thread and we'll drop a note on it when we are heading out next. Do you have a combat ship in that container from Devon?

    I can't today either sorry.
