Bad luck Jock, at least it wasn't a fresh prop.

Sorry I couldn't make it in the end, work just got the better of me and I ended up spending the day stressing.

Mike, how did the last flight go, did you make it round Malvern and back before it went dark?

Hi Dan.

Sorry I didnt get back to you, got tied up.

Yes had a great flight over to the Malverns. Average speed out was 21mph with 27mph on the way back. Managed 37mph a few times with speed bar. A big front was on the other side of the Hills so I returned sharpish. Didnt want to get caught up in that!

Catch you next time.

All the best

Mikey
