Letter from the BMFA

You might recall that at the last meeting we talked about a letter from the BMFA asking clubs to let them know which are open to people wanting to fly multi rotors. You may also recall the we reiterated our opposition to multi rotors on safety grounds and have informed the BMFA. For your information the following is a link to the letter.

BMFA Multi Rotor Letter.

At the last meeting we talked about how many aeroplanes we've been through as an encouragement to new flyers who are disheartened by breaking planes while learning. I have just sat down and counted my planes and it came to:-

Richard                    13

Paul                           9

Ian                            19

John                                  12

Will members please do their own count and email me, you'll only be identified by first name.
