Local PSS legend visits Umdloti Electrons

We were privileged to have 86 years young Pete Milne join us at Umdloti Electrons Saturday morning. Definitely a die hard modeller and did not hesitate when Russ offered to collect him at 05h20!
Just how early is evident from the slightly foggy but perfect for e flying conditions.
The Cub had been rustled together from cheapie bits to illustrate that parkie flying can be enjoyed on a shoe string - the Cub tootling along fine on the EMax two hundred buck cheapie motor from Denkit, along with ex Witblitz 1300ma lipo and the surprisingly good ex Skylark Chinese radio. Before long, uncle Pete was plotting how to electrify his PSS Cub.

Thanks to Russ for snapping the pics.
