to RMFC chairman Steve Dunning

Retford MFC were lucky enough to receive a training aircraft in 2007 as the club did not have a club trainer.
The Wots Wot saw great service with over 200flying hours,  many new to model flying were given  a hands
on  experience which saw new members gained for the club and BMFA. Even though the plane was not in
pristine condition it still flew well the only modification required  was to fit 2 Futaba wing servos to stop aileron
flutter in dire situations. On the 27th November last year (2014) RMFC suffered a break in at their club house,
the aircraft and radio gear were part of what was stolen. After reporting the loss to the area an offer of replacing
the engine and airframe was tabled with RMFC replacing the radio gear. The new trainer built by
Steve Dunning of Elation Models Doncaster was presented to RMFC by Marian Ainsworth Midland area delegate
on the 12th July. The new aircraft has both RMFC and Midland area logos making it dual purpose as a trainer

and static model display at shows around  RMFC

 
     
 
 
 
This is the result of a trainer aircraft being put to good use by Tim Turner RMFC club trainer
 
A prospective junior member having a great time !
