This weekend Just gone, myself and my daughter drove over to Tokoroa for an impromptu fly-in , organised on the Parkflyers site as a preliminary to a Pro-Bro event later in the year.
Note : a Pro-Bro (short for Profile Brotherhood) website here is a gathering of guys who just want to fly 3D, normaly profile fuselage planes, no flying in circles (called ‘CJ flyers”), planes get up to all sorts of cool tricks, and the guys have allot of fun.
Anyway , we drove over, leaving Hawera at 5am, arriving at Tokoroa just on 9am, the drive was frosty, -7 thru bennydale.
Great day, few crashes (me), great combat flying (superflys and Yaks), 3D action, one turbine jet, some very fast ritewings and hotliers/pylon racers.
I also had 3 flights on the AT40 trainer, with 1400 watts of electric power, couldnt keep up with Bruces nitro powered AT40, theres always next time
Below are some videos from the day
