Three Cheers! For BOTH teams, and the referees, and even the crowd! Not being a regular sports fan, I settled down for a days cricket. What a wonderful spectacle! You really couldn't slide a cigarette paper between the two sides, (Do cigarette papers still exist?). Even though I supported the English team, (true Brit and all), I would have been almost as happy (by the thickness of a cigarette paper), for the Kiwis to have won.
The crowd, was wonderfully mixed, with many people it seems being supporters from many countries, it really gave me hope that the world may learn to rub along together.
Congratulations Cricketers everywhere!
It was HOT!! A great weekend though. lovely to meet returning customers, and hopefully many new ones.
The commentaries are a delight. Last year I was amused by the phrase " ..and he has just made an unscheduled landing in the long grass!" This years phrase was "... I think a critical component has detached itself from the plane." This is perhaps unfair as the whole event runs incredibly smoothly, and hundreds of planes are flown with great panache and no problems.
Hope to see you there next year.
The idea is that the space used by the base also becomes useful. Items such as your apple phone ( actually we use One Plus phones )holds pens and pencils can take their place on a tidy desk :)
We have finished all the 3D printed parts (above) in a mix of PLA (Red and Yellow), ABS (white and grey) and flexible (tyres) filaments. Over the next few weeks we will be finishing the build in our spare time and using the model to learn how to fly!
Plus, we already have a stock of spare parts for when we learn how to land.
