Bramalea RC Flyers had approximately 30-40 out, with at least 10 or 15 flying. I Took to the air with my Ski equiped Piper Cub. (Was tough getting off the grass with skis)

For my second flight, I switched back to wheels for a much easier takeoff.

The wind out of the north made it quite cool on the fingers, but it was nice for the brief time the sun came out.

The weather cooperated down in southern ontario as well. 99% of the snow was gone. It was about +2 out with little wind. I got the most flying in since thanksgiving weekend. Great fun with my newer laser and spitfires. It was +8 newyears eve.
Weather in Simcoe was the same as Bryan described earlier. Those warm 33kph winds and rain the day before sure did wipe out any snow we had.

Ten members of the Simcoe Club showed up at the field. Only two were brave enough to bring planes. Due to engine troubles, only mine flew that day.


If you want awesome, you have to scratch build it!

The Algonquin Aeromodellers have an annual fun fly each New Year's Day & the first flight of the year wins a 40oz bottle of rum. I was successful in achieving that first 2005 flight with my Skimaster SPAD. The bottle was shared among all participants when the flying wound down.

Shuswap Lake Aero Modelers had about 7 or 8 out. It was -6C, quite cold for us and windy and bumpy in the air. I was fortunate enough to fly first in 2005, off floats in the snow. I made it a very short flight as the drift with the wind was major and the bumps in the air were a bit wild and my hands were getting numb. Snow was a little soft for skis but a small trail was packed down and some flights with skis were made.

The colt is an excellent flying plane , I use it for playing on the lake, Like in the pics this is a good plane to beat on ive ripped the landing gear off landing on the sideroad west of my place, Roads are to narrow and pavement is aggressive to steer on, I also made it into a two piece wing on one landing into a hawthorn tree (It jumped in front of me) fixed the wing in about 1/2 hour patched and pieced new coroplast from a TIM HORTENS Billboard sign let the glue dry and away i went again, mine is powered with a .51 supertiger, and it turns an 11x8 prop at 12500 rpm this plane i would recommend to anyone, i thought these were a joke when i first seen them but they sure are FUN!
