Some Pic's of the Radio Control Aircraft which attended the AMP FEST fly in. These aircraft are all Electric powered.
The Fly in was at the Hawkes Bay Radio Flyers field at AWATOTO.
The Speed contest was Saturday and some of these Hotliners (really fast Gliders) were clocked in excess of 275 kph through the speed trap.
The General Rally was Sunday.

Swung past Taupo Airport this AM Sunday 9th
This GAF N-22 Nomad looks a bit worse for wear. They are a great machine and were made famous in the Aussie TV series the Flying Doctors.
They are so good at what they do that the Indian Masters who Bought Gippsland Aerospace in Australia are putting the Nomad back into production and Air Safari's of Tekapo have sold one of there N-24 stretched veresions to Gippsland to be the flying test bed for the new version. Comes with all the Mod cons Glass Cockpit new engines etc . Can't wait to see what they come up with.
Anyhoo here is some pic's
