Re: G'day folks

I would suggest you get there around 11am, or 1030h at the earliest. It takes a while for us to set up. We pack up around 4pm. Remember to dress well for a day in the field. Sunscreen, hat, water, munchies, coffee, camping chairs. Relevant coats if it is a cold day. You can stop at the Eaglehawk Bak...

Re: GDay from Central Queensland

Welcome to the forum Vinnie. Lots of information and helpful people here. See if you can get along to a club launch (QRS) sometime. Don't forget to bring your rocket(s) to fly. They fly everything from A and up in motors. Seeing some high-power flights will probably knock your socks off! Enjoy!
