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.

DDMAC Easter Invite

 

 

Dewsbury and District Model Aero Club (DDMAC) are holding an informal Easter Fly In event, on Monday 2nd April 2018 (Easter Monday), starting at 11.00am at the DDMAC flying site.

 

 

 

On behalf of the Dewsbury Club Committee, I would like to extend an invitation to you and your fellow club members to join us for the day.

 

 

 

 KADMAC members are welcome to come along and fly any type aircraft (fixed wing, helicopter or multi rotor) and enjoy the day.  We will also hold our ETA event (details below) and a few other ad hoc events during the day.

 

 

 

ETA Fixed Wing, Helicopters & Multi Rotor
Draw a time from a hat (can be anything from 90 to 150 seconds). Flyer has to take off and land, trying to land in a time, as near as possible to the time drawn from the hat. Winner is the pilot who lands the nearest to their time. Time starts from when the wheels or skids (helicopters / multi rotor) leave the ground and ends when they wheels/skids touch back down (no transmitter timers or watches allowed).

 

All pilots will be briefed, as they arrive regarding the flying field rules and transmitter control. If you have any questions, please ask. The safety of everyone is paramount.

 

Tea & Coffee will be available in the club cabin throughout the day.
We will be looking to serve bacon and sausage sandwiches around mid-day.

 

There will be a charity donation jar. Any donations will be gratefully received and will go to the clubs nominated charity for the year, Kirkwood Hospice.

 

 

 

We do have a limit of no models over 7 Kilograms and a noise limit of no models over 82 decibels measured at 7 metres.

 

 

 

Any updates relating to the event will be put on the club forum, including confirmation as to whether the event is going ahead or not, in case of any adverse weather conditions.
