Greetings Aviators


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

LONG time lurker first time poster. Really just want to get rid of THAT message 022_wink.gif.2137519eeebfc3acb3315da062b6b1c1.gif that keeps telling me to post in here. I have met a couple of you in the chat area so G'Day to the rest of you.

 

I tend to be pretty unreliable with forums popping in and out randomly and indiscriminately but I hope to be more active around the place henceforth... like many, very time poor... so could be a hollow promise 014_spot_on.gif.1f3bdf64e5eb969e67a583c9d350cd1f.gif

I won't say welcome because it looks like you've been here longer than me, but Congratulations on your 1st post. Just 4 more and you can loose the 'new member' banner.

Underneath your avatar, it seems to indicate you have been a member since 5 January 2008, almost four years!

Thanks all,

 

David, do most of my flying in Hang Gliders out at Dalby, and now Drifters, but live in Brisbane, so throw myself of the hills down around Canungra from time to time, and have been known to do the odd competition around the country for the 'social activities' 027_buddies.gif.22de48aac5a25c8f7b0f586db41ef93a.gif.

 

Yes indeed 80knts, lurking in the shadows for quite a while, first signed up some years ago gleam.gif.61a3085bab2441797a6de7bfc35070cb.gif So, as far as RAA goes... I did a few hours over the years in Drifters, and a little in Dragonflies and trikes but never got the paperwork sorted for one reason or another. Changed that all last week and finalised my licence.

 

So where is the best place to get a seat in a Drifter around Brisbane... Boonah? 080_plane.gif.36548049f8f1bc4c332462aa4f981ffb.gif (I love these little avatar dudes :robot: )

So far, you have averaged one message per year since you joined RecFlying in January 2008 (before GFC 020_yes.gif.58d361886eb042a872e78a875908e414.gif).

 

One more message, Tex, and you will no longer have the New Member tag under your name. 026_cheers.gif.2a721e51b64009ae39ad1a09d8bf764e.gif

Hi again cficare :wave:OK skeptic36 and cficare... someone is in breach of signature copyright here, though I guess you will need to take it up with Don:poking:

 

Bad news that Alan 051_crying.gif.fe5d15edcc60afab3cc76b2638e7acf3.gif I am heading out on an adventure tomorrow to pick one up... not for me unfortunately. Pics to follow later in the week...017_happy_dance.gif.8a199466e9bd67cc25ecc8b442db76ba.gif

Yep. Drifters are nice. Only flown in one once, but I enjoyed the experience. A great photographic platform, due to no canopy. I recall a real blast of wind when side slipping. It is amazing how much protection a small windscreen gives, but then I already knew that from the trike. :big_grin:

Howdy Tex, probably seen you and even shaken your hand before... you never know! 004_oh_yeah.gif.82b3078adb230b2d9519fd79c5873d7f.gif I'm the tall skinny young fella that hangs around there at times, flying Smokey's or Barney's toys 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

 

I Fly the Drifters and whatever else in Dalby also, have been around for a few of the glider comps, and gotta love the Dragonflies :thumb_up:

 

Glad to hear you've got your paperwork all sorted, can't beat 208 for a nice little Drifter, Hey! 080_plane.gif.36548049f8f1bc4c332462aa4f981ffb.gif

 

Have you seen Yoda's new toy lately? 011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif

Hey Tomo, yes probably have bumped into each other. 208 is nice solo but she don't like climbing with me and anyone else on board... 582 required 004_oh_yeah.gif.82b3078adb230b2d9519fd79c5873d7f.gif

 

The Rans S7... LUVLY :spot on:spent 10 hours in it Sunday, Monday... will post a some pic and video once I can find some time to edit. Went out to pick up a Drifter with The S7 and Cub... Great little XC adventure.

Haha, yeah I suppose 2 up in 208 is a bit steady. If you talk to Selwyn he's always going on about how light I am and can usually get better performance out of most things 003_cheezy_grin.gif.c5a94fc2937f61b556d8146a1bc97ef8.gif

 

Have to catch up sometime!

G'day Darryle, should come out to Dalby sometime and we'll get you in the air one way or the other! I've got both RAA and PPL etc... also, makes for some great fun!
