    Default Melbourne, Autumn 2017 meet.

    Just throwing it out there, to see if there's interest.
    Maybe some time shortly after D/S ends?

    Default Melbourne, Autumn 2017 meet.

    Cardinia Reservoir Park was /is a good spot. I enjoyed that meet.

    Just not the first week of March as I'll be cutting my quota of firewood for the year.

    So what about the Saturday either prior to or after Easter? That would be either the 8th or the 22nd of April. The 8th is the first weekend after D/S has finished. The only one I cant make, is Easter. Are those dates suitable for others? Or any other suggestions?

    You mean where you spin around on the spot then fall over from the dizzies, Matt?! Do they have 1/16oz. fuel tanks? That's about all I could handle!
    Being a championship, you'd be spinning round pretty fast on the spot too.

    Is it OK if its 22nd of April instead? We are celebrating a birthday in the family that weekend of the 8th.

    What new lights does everyone have to bring? Post pics pls....

    The 22nd of April would suit me, if others are OK with it.
    For me, it will probably be something along these lines, no mods, all factory std. lights.

    Pretty self explanatory. The thing beside the Olight X7 is a Skyray King NW modded lightly for reliability. The old TK20 just for its warm led. Note the intentional gap beside the Klarus XT12GT, with any luck, that will be filled by an XT11GT by the meet.

    Oh, and a cheap headlamp so as not to trip over one of those low log fences.....

    Yes , that's it ..
    But I no longer fly , I just go there to watch and take photo's ...
    I might see about taking video as well this year .. I have a few Action Cameras ...
    My back is some what Cactus , so watching is about as much as I can handle ..
    I would like to fly again , but ??

    We still going ahead with the meet as planned? I will bring some sausages and buns for a BBQ...

    Hey Matt, I will bring my brushless 1/8 Truggy and have a run there before it gets dark... can have a RC meet before the flashlight meet.

    Here are some new lights I got since the last meet.

    Gavin , we certainly can RC ..
    So ????????????????????????????????????????/ 6th of May good for everyone ? ( 2 weeks postponement ) or 29th April ...

    Yes , things are very quiet ..
    Recently got a XT-E R5 drop in , and a XP-L V5 drop in as well a Solarforce L2C host

    Solarforce has the XP_L V5 drop in , its good for the current draw ..
    XT-E is too much like a XP-E ( But worse )

    If you have to get something ? Then maybe the XP-G2 rather than the XT-E
