35MHz or 27MHz frequency pegboard works as follows:

PEG ON BOARD-SWTCH ON TX

SWITCH OFF TX– PEG OFF BOARD

Transmitter pennants, displaying the correct 35MHz frequency or 27MHz colour, must be flown at all times.
Never switch on your transmitter unless your peg, marked with your name, is on the board on the correct frequency. Failure to
Comply with this procedure could have disastrous consequences.

We must also bear in mind that to operate our flying activities on such a tight and busy site as harden moor we need to adopt some kind of flying site etiquette most of which is covered and should be followed from the hand books. But there are always changeable situations at every flying session such as the number of people or the weather conditions that make, what was fine at the start of the flying session, not best practice later on, which means a change of flight line or pits may become necessary. In the event that you do feel unhappy with the operation of the flying site, please talk to the B certificated flyers first, then to the or other flyers and if within the guidance given in the handbooks the majority feel the flight line or pits need to be changed, change it.

HAPPY FLYING

DDMAC Easter Fun-Fly Event Monday 2nd April 2018

This event is cancelled.

The weather for Easter Monday is not looking good. The forecast is for heavy rain and sleet accompanied by strong winds. I have therefore decided there is little prospect, of being able to hold this event.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Lipo Fire

"Do you need a reminder about what can happen around lipos, this is the 3rd lipo fire we have had within our club of around 70 members within 3years.
Whilst there is no conclusive evidence to point to why this lipo fire happened. It was only good fortune that our member didn't burn his house down.
If your running a first generation Lipo charger without a balance lead facility maybe the time has come to think again."

Ken Grice

It is with regret that we announce the passing of one of our founder members, Ken Grice at the age of 94 years.  Many will have known him as “Upside Down Ken” due to his penchant for inverted flight immediately after take off.  A true character. Ken’s Funeral is at Nab Wood on Friday 24th January at 11:30am.  Family flowers only.
