2014 NSW State Titles – F4C/F4H/Open

The weather prediction of rain for the Saturday did not happen and despite threatening for most of the day it turned out to be perfect flying weather. Numbers were down due to the earlier weather forecast and Sunday was completely washed out. Luckily 2 flights by each pilot was enough for a score and a result on the Saturday. Once again there were Blacktown members competing.

Taree Large Scale Championship (2014)

Taree Club hosted the 2014 NSW Large Scale Champs what turned out to be perfect weather for 2 the days of flying except a annoying cross wind on Saturday that kept each pilot working at their take offs and landings as there is only one strip but luckily no mishaps with the big birds. The club is just outside Wingham where they share the facility with the local shooting club. The clay pigeon target shooting though a little unnerving when flying proved that the 2 disciplines can easily coexist. The event was well attended by Blacktown members with Robert Zyp taking out 2nd place with his very large nicely presented Gypsy Moth.

Wagga Model Aero Club WW1, WW2 and Military Scale Competition (2014)

Wagga Model Aero Club 2014 WW1, WW2 and Military Scale Competition ANZAC weekend was patronized well by BAC members with made to order weather all weekend with just a little wind here and there. Stand out from the event would have had to have been Anthony Ogles 60cc Corsair running a 7 cylinder radial – which has been stripped, glassed and repainted.
