Home Turf

15mph South Westerly and Fred and Hammer take off from Hunts, their home turf so to speak!  There was just enough lift for Fred the ME 109 which is strictly an I.C model so the wing section certainly isn't ideal for anything less than a moderate breeze.  However, she felt a little more stable and was less likely to tip stall with a little reflex dialled into  into the ailerons, probably due to the wash out effect but the compromise was less lift which occasionally was a little scary.
The Hammer on the other hand revelled in the conditions and appreciated an additional 200g of ballast. This was the first time since her construction that I had flown her with ballast and she could probably take another 200g as the difference was a better, more steady platform which flew with a positive more purposeful manner.
